For my birthday… in September (LOL), Sam challenged me to write down 23 things I wanted to do before I turned 24. It was such a rewarding way for me to reflect on things I valued and to set goals for a year from then. It was much harder than I had expected and as the days, weeks, months passed I began to add onto my list knowing I’d be cutting it close to my next birthday.
Now, I am TWO months away from turning 24 and have checked off quite a few of those 23 things, but I have also managed to fail at several (everything bolded). That’s the beauty of creating a birthday bucket list. It’s okay to fail and to acknowledge that there is always room for improvement and growth.
