Happy New Year!
Can you believe it's 2014? It's a big birthday year for me so, to get ready for it, I've decided to step out and try some new things. I'm going to be brave, messy, and pack in some adventure before turning 30. To do such, I'll do 30 things before 30...
30 Before 30
1. Read 30 classic children's books
2. Bake 30 breads/pastries/new recipes.
3. Write a letter/note to 5 great people.
4. Write a song...and share it.
5. Assemble a model of something (car?).
6.--10. Watch 5 children's movies I've never seen.
11.--15. Visit 5 new places in Portland.
16.--20. Visit 5 new places in the U.S.
21.--22. Make some plans for the next 5 years.
22.--26. Read 4 books.
27.--30. Workout 3X a week for 6 weeks.
So, as you can see from the list, there are more than 30 things total here; however, I tried to break it down into 30 manageable tasks to accomplish. Sure, it's a little scary, and I'm not known for taking on "too little." :) But I'll do my absolute best to finish these in the next 50 days (I started on Sunday.). Wish me luck!
Do you have any goals that you've been working on? Is it time to set some? If we're not moving, we've chosen to sit still, and there's too much research and evidence to show that setting goals is important for mental/physical/emotional/spiritual/relational health. Why not try to set some reasonable goals for yourself? And please check in with me here on Memoir Munchies to see how I'm doing (the "30 Before 30" tab at the top).
Much love, peace and baking! And safe travels for my MIL and her friends, going to Hawaii for a yoga retreat today (How do you spell j-e-a-l-o-u-s??). I hope it's relaxing and amazing for her soul. :)
