OK so I just registered for Mud Wars!  It is a 5k race with 9 obstacles.  I have never done anything like this before.  I am kind of scared really!  At least I will be doing this with some girlfriends so it will be nice to have it be a group effort.  I just hope I don’t fall on my face!  ha! ha!  It should be a great experience though and will satisfy goal # 12!  Well look at that! Getting stuff done even before I turn 29–why not right?!  This means I have 2 weeks to get my butt in gear, looks like the gym and I will be seeing a lot more of each other!  🙂



New goals posted!

Yay!  So I have finally gotten the hang of this, I think.  I have posted 9 goals tonight.  To see what they are click here.

The beginning of my to do list…

So today I posted my 1st goal for my 29th year of life–to be kind.  It really should be something that I have been working on but up until recently I would not say that I have been the kindest of people.  It is not an easy thing to do especially because I, I don’t dare say we as to not offend anyone out there, but I am always so wrapped up in all of my daily routines, things I have to do, things I want to do but can’t find the time, and between work, school, watching my niece and nephew and all of my complaining I forget that anyone out there even exists.  It is a horrible thing and I fully admit that at times I am more than a little self-absorbed but c’est la vie!  What can you do?  So as I drove in my car today to school I decided that being kind was a good thing to aspire for–to think of others and to think outside myself.  So on the list–Be Kind!

I am actually happy that I have started this blog 2 months prior to my 29th birthday because I think it will give me the time I need to actually reflect on deeper goals.  Don’t get me wrong I will have plenty of goals listed that hold no deep-rooted life changing meaning or effect but I like that I have the time to think of at least a few really good, character-changing goals.

The first steps…

Today I began this blog to chart my last year in my 20’s.  For the next 2 months I will be planning and finding ideas for my 29th year in this world.  My 29th birthday will be the beginning of my actual documentation.  I will try to be as honest and real about everything that I experience and do and hopefully it will be stuff worth reading.  Guess we shall see!

Two months from tomorrow I will be turning 29.  With that in mind, I have decided to create a blog where I can share the goals, activities, sadnesses and joys of my last year in my twenties.  My hope is that this becomes a great growing and learning experience.  I shall set my sights high but not be disillusioned nor bothered if I cannot accomplish them all.  I am starting this now so that I may prepare and establish some type of plan.  My yearlong resolutions will begin in September instead of at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve.

I have a lot of things that I want to do, and although turning 30 will not deter me from accomplishing any of these things, I want to push myself and see how much I can actually accomplish in a year if I set my mind to it.  I want to enter the third decade of my life refreshed, invigorated, and with purpose.

They say that your life truly begins at 30, and I can see where people are going with this.  I have grown a lot throughout my 20’s and want to be prepared to move forward.  My 20’s have been much consumed with the past, negativity towards myself and sometimes others, unhealthy habits and life plans that were never accomplished.  Needless to say I have had a blast and would never give up what I have experienced for anything in the world.  But like with everything, time passes and it is time to start growing up and realizing that reality is hard and that nothing comes easy.  That is where this blog comes into play.
