I enjoyed the whole process of my 30 before 30 list that I decided to continue the tradition with writing up a new list of goals that I would like to achieve before I hit 31 years old. I gave myself a couple of weeks to mull over my ideas because goals can’t be rushed, eh? Today, I finally pulled out my shiny new notebook and this year I chose my royal blue staedtler pen to write out my list. Some of these goals have been carried over from the previous list but quite a lot of these are brand new. I’m quite excited to start planning and scheming to achieve some of these goals already. Yey!
For the sake of accountability, or at least to give me a reason to try and work on these goals I will list them share them here on the blog.
