The Happy 30: 30 Things I Wanted to do Before Turning 30 (One)


It’s exactly one month until my 31st birthday. It’s been an interesting past year and even though it began on quite a rubbish note, it’s been ironed out and turning into a year that is happier, it’s still a work in progress but I like how it’s shaping up.

So here is a list of stuff and things that over the last 30 years I thought “when I’m 30, I’ll have done that” some things I have, others I haven’t and it just means I still have lots to look forward to. So, in no particular order…

  1. Be a mum √
  2. Travel to the UK √
  3. Live in another country √
  4. Get along with my parents √
  5. Have a holiday for the sake of having a holiday √
  6. Run my own business √
  7. Own power tools and use them √
  8. Know how to do my own taxes and budget √
  9. Obtain further education √

Do you have a list of things you’re hoping to accomplish? It seems like a daunting task, but the positive thing I found when writing my list, was there were more “yep, I’ve done that!” than things I hadn’t done….
