[My 25 before 25 list hanging in my office - great addition to my inspiration board]
I can't tell you what it was or is about the age 25 that I always had a good feeling about, but since I cared about birthdays, so forever, the age 25 and I have always had a connection. I can't predict what will happen, & who knows, the year might come and go with nothing spectacular, but I just have an excitement and anticipation about the age. Looking back a few weeks now, I believe it is that fact that led me to come up with the idea of wanting to compile a list of 25 things I want to do before I'm 25. I had first thought of doing a similar thing for 24, but realised that is merely 3 months away. So when I said I would then do the list of 25 before 25, I realised, this in fact coincided what I've always believed to be 'my year'. I have had so much fun thinking of things I've always said I'd love to do but never put them as a goal or worked at achieving them and I want to share with you the journey! I'm only at 14 things so far as I don't want to rush the list and put things on there for the sake of it so am slowly finishing it as things I love come to me. If you've ever wanted to do something but never thought you could or had time or just not thought to write it down - DO IT! We're all in control of our dreams and the fun we can have with life.
Here is my list so fare compiled: (in no particular order)
1. Have a trip of a lifetime to Europe
2. Swim with Dolphins
3. Do something incredible for Mr M
4. Ride in a hot air balloon
5. Sky dive
6. Ride a camel
7. Holiday to Melbourne with Mr M
8. Start my book on "......." (good business people never share ideas until they're started!)
9. Write a letter to everyone I love about why they're so amazing
10. Start my 2nd business
11. Run a half a marathon
12. Obtain another certificate in education (Training & Assessment or equivalent)
13. Sponsor a child in Africa
14. Be earning $100,000+
& that's where I am up too. Your turn though! What are some things you've always wanted to do but just not gotten around to doing them. I want to hear your ideas and who knows, they might make it on to my list!
p.s After posting on my Facebook the other day about the plan I had with this 25 before 25 thing, I awoke on Saturday morning after Mr M's best friend Master R had crashed at ours Friday night to find a little present he'd left me on the bench - "50 things to do once in your lifetime". I just love it and loved the thoughtfulness of it. Some good ideas in there too!
