Well, I finally hit the big 3-0. And since the 30 Before 30 list was so much fun, I've decided to carry the project over into my 30th year. You'll notice that a few of the items are from last year's list. I wasn't quite able to finish them all. This time around I think I've filled the list with goals that are definitely doable, beneficial, fun, and that cater specifically to my writing goals.
I completed about half of my last list. Some of the things didn't happen because we couldn't afford them...like going to Kuai, or getting my ribs tattooed... others didn't happen because I just didn't think about them much, or because other priorities took precedence... but I did complete some of the really big ones.
Going back to Texas!
Making "Etsy" work for me!
Scuba Diving! You can see a teeny bit of photos here.
And some littler ones:
Sunrise in Hawaii!
Establishing my own website! Which is totally a work in progress still. But my DOT COM is finally working.
Paying for someone's meal in the drive thru.
Still others...I've just begun...
Filling a Sangria Jar with Change!
Read 30 new books! I made it to 14 and a half!
Write THE book.
As for the rest... well I could go on and on trying to tell you where I'm at, or why I didn't get to cross them off my list. But I'm not going to focus on what I couldn't and didn't do.
I am here... one year older. More experienced. More learned. More accomplished. More sure of myself. More sure of my Jesus. I have been blessed with another year of life. Another day to breath, to love, to live.
Every day is a gift. Each day is a blessing. I am 30 years blessed!!! Not 30 years old.
Cheers to 30 years!
I've already got some of my 30 Things lined up...
My reading list is going strong.
The books look real good with my new boots next to 'em, don't they? =)
Last year, I had the goal of filling a sangria jug with change.
Yah... I made it to a 4th full and cashed that sucker in.
I actually had 64 bucks in there! Woo!
Now...I've begun again.
Here, you can see a snippet of my living collage.
Yep...that's one of my tattoos on the bottom right corner of it.
100 points for the person who can tell me what it says... ooh la la!
P.S. The jug is not dusty... it's the instagram filter that I used!
Can you guess which part of my fridge pertains to my 30 things list?
No? Well, I'll tell you. It's the Corn Poppy magnet.
Yes... I have the magnet version now. I do have a much larger
print that I need to frame. My mom, 2 sisters, grandmother and I
all have that painting. Love it. (Click the pic to see my fridge stuff larger..
...if you want. I'm sure you're totally interested. Ha!)
Here's a pic of me with the REAL painting in The Houston
Museum of Fine Arts when I was in Texas a few weeks ago.
And finally... another step toward completing my 30 Things list...
I finally finished my wrap watch. I've been holding on to that face for FORever!
I finally broke down and bought some leather cording to braid together for a wrap strap.
I'm digging it. Oh yah.
So... follow along as I tick things off the list. I promise...I am going to be much more proactive about it this time around. 😉 I've updated my page tabs to include the 30 in 30
. I'm excited for this next year that will bring all sorts of changes. Welcome 30. You're very welcome..
