Celebrating my 29th birthday today is especially bittersweet with the realization that I will soon be leaving my twenties forever. I feel incredibly grateful for the amazing opportunities and milestones that have been reached through-out my twenties – college graduation, founding Gal Meets Glam, getting married, traveling, moving to South Carolina, buying our first house, starting Gal Meets Glam Collection, and the birth of our daughter Clementine. I’ve tried to never put the pressure on myself to achieve things on a timeline, but I like the idea of using this year to push myself to try some new things for pure enjoyment. Sometimes a goal as simple as learning a new skill is just as important as some of the other larger ambitions. It’s amazing what can come to fruition from one new thing- a new friend, a new business idea, a new goal, or a new found love for something!
I created this list of things that I found rewarding/enjoyable/challenging to focus on during my twenties. Some I’ve achieved and others, I have yet to. It’s not meant to be seen as ‘needing to accomplish all of these things before 30’, but more as an idea generator to keep myself moving forward and growing. Enjoy taking a peek below and please share any additional ideas to add to the list!
