That’s how you have to look at it past a certain age right? I turn 29 today. Eeek! Only one year before the big 3-0. I’m strangely OK with it. As I’m approaching the end of my twenties, I look back at how much I’ve achieved, the friends I’ve made, who I’ve become, what I’ve experienced, what lessons I’ve learned… And it makes me proud and happy to be me. Sure there’s been struggles, hustles and mistakes along the way, but overall I’m satisfied about what I’ve achieved in the past 9 years and most importantly, I’m excited for the next chapter!
Since I have one year left of my twenties, I thought I’d be a great time to make the most of it, and write down my 30 before 30 list. I couldn’t actually narrow it down to 30 things, so I have a bit of leeway with the list below. Cheers to 29!
