30 Before 30

So this December i turn the big 3-0. At 29 i don’t feel like hitting 3-0 will be a problem, or a downer or infact not much different to how i feel at 29 i imagine. I’m really ok with it.
I have a done a lot in my twenties;
I started and closed a business, i got engaged and married, helped raise two step children who taught me how to be a mum, experienced pregnancy and giving birth and raising my son. So all in all im pretty proud and pleased with the woman i have become thanks to my twenties.
What i am hoping to achieve in my 30’s is; more confidence in my body and my mind, pushing myself to get past my own boundaries and to deal with stress better than i previously have.
They may sound obvious but they are the crux of the matters. The things i truly want to change and how i want to grow as a person.
But i thought now might be a good time to finally put a fun 30 before 30 in place to push myself on all levels. Fun and interesting things that i’ve wanted to do or just material things that i have wanted to change but never get round to doing. 30 before 30 can hold me accountable, which is good.. i need a gentle prod in the right direction sometimes.
So without further a do here it is:

1. Be positive

2.Take a surf lesson

3.Go on a city break with hubby 

(paris, bruge or amsterdam maybe)

    Storm chasing would be amazing and terrifying! Also, I wish I lived on your side of the pond, because photo outings to castles sounds like pretty much the best thing ever. 🙂
