Well, the day is here. I have had moments where I’ve dreaded this day, and moments where I’ve been over-the-moon excited. Since the New Year, I’ve just been reflective of my 20s. It was interesting to reflect on a decade where I had some incredible highs, but also the lowest of lows. Did you catch yesterday’s post about what I learned in my last decade? I am grateful for life experiences I had that taught me a lot about myself and shaped my world views. So, today, I’m excited for what a new decade has to offer. Here are my goals for my 30s.
For starters, did you make a 30 before 30 list? In my infinite wisdom and impatience, I decided to make a list in June of 2015. This gave me roughly a year and a half to complete my goals, which looking back, some were overly ambitious or not attainable at all. So, in the spirit of not giving up on something I started, I’m continuing with those goals listed here.
I also reflected on what my goals were in my 20s. As I changed, so did my goals and my focus. Things that I wanted when I was 19/20 were not things I cared about when I was 25. So, I’m done with super specific goals for this next decade. I’m all about goals that can be fluid and evolve as I do.
So, in addition to finishing my 30 before 30 list, I want to focus on:
- More patience
- More experiences
- Less “stuff”
- More balance
- Less explaining
So, there you have it. There’s something about a fresh start that makes me feel excited, but also a little anxious. What were your goals for your next decade? Thanks so much for following along here. I really appreciate all your love and support over the years and I’m excited to have you here as I continue to explore my passions on I’m Fixin’ To.
