Number one rule: Have fun and be creative
I love making lists. Writing things down, crossing things off. I am a believer in making a list and checking it twice. From a daily to-do list, to a birthday wish list, to a 30 before 30 list… lists are my BFF. They keep my grounded, they help me remember, they inspire me.
This quote by Oprah about devoting your day to doing something daring had be thinking a lot about my 30 before 30 list. My 30th birthday seems closer than ever (gulp) and while I still have quite a few things to cross off and this sometimes overwhelms me. Because who wants an unfinished, an uncrossed off list!?! But today, that is not the point.
The point is, when I look at the list I created on my 25th birthday, I am proud of what I have accomplished in the last 3 and 1/2 years. I am in awe of the days that I devoted to doing something daring and bold; something for ME, something on my “bucket list”.
When I look at my 30 before 30 list; it is a reflection of who I have become and what I have accomplished.
I had never ran more than a (forced) mile in PE when I made this list. I think perhaps I may have had a glass of wine or two as I wrote down not only run a 5K but also run a marathon. To think, just a couple years ago running was not a part of my life. And now, today, I can hardly imagine my life without my running shoes.
When I see learn to knit, tears come to my eyes. My dear friend taught me to knit when I was in the hospital on bed rest keeping my babies cooking as long as possible. When I made this list, who would have ever imagined I would be pregnant with twins and needing something to keep my hands and heart busy. With each knit and pearl stitched, I said a silent prayer to keep my two babies in my belly for as long as possible.
When I see visit Paris, Germany, go on a couples vacation; I am flooded with memories of laughter and adventure. Memories of a belly filled with delicious exotic food. Memories of sights seen and memories made. I am so fortunate to have travelled so much before I became a Mama; as I don’t think we will be heading back to Europe any time soon. However, Italy is still on the list, and I am crossing my fingers we could go for our 30th birthdays. Want to watch the boys for us??
Do you have a “bucket list”? Do you make to-do lists??
