40 before 40 Goals

I have a coworker who made a really fun list as she approached her 30th year. I really liked this idea and wanted to start my own list as I approach the big 4-0 in 2017. I have a few goals, but I’m nowhere near 40 goals yet. I figured I would share some of my goals now and just update as I continue to build my list.  Some of these are serious goals while others are silly and fun goals. It would be simply boring without some sort of variety, right? I may even change some of the ones listed here. I’m brainstorming while I write.

  1. Learn to Hula Hoop
  2. Learn to do a Headstand
  3. Learn to do a Handstand
  4. Do the Crow in Yoga
  5. Pay off my credit card (done!)
  6. Lose 60 pounds
  7. Buy property
  8. Surprise my parents by paying some of their mortgage payments (done!)
  9. Fix my credit score so that it’s beautiful and healthy
  10. Run 1 mile without stopping
  11. Buy a new car – not a put put car like my Chevy Cobalt but a more serious grown-up car
  12. Make a scrapbook for me (done!)
  13. Downsize my stash of crafting supplies by 1/3 its current size (or more)
  14. Take a photography class for my new DSLR camera (done!)
  15. Learn to make Pozole like my mom’s
  16. Learn to make creamy grits & collard greens
  17. Make tamales by myself
  18. Have actual savings in the bank for emergencies
  19. Declutter my home and adopt a more minimal lifestyle — I’m a girl that has a lot of stuff she doesn’t use
  20. Travel to one new country
  21. Pay off $10K of my student loans (starting at $54K)
  22. Make a Project Life album
  23. Grow my blog reach to 1000 followers

As someone once told me, goals are just dreams if they are written down or shared. Now to get to it!!!  I’ll continue to add to my list.
