26 Goals On My 26th Birthday

26 Goals On My 26th Birthday


This April I decided to actually write down some goals for myself moving forward. I knew there were things that I wanted to accomplish but I didn't really have a good way of keeping them at the forefront of my mind or holding myself accountable to them and I thought this would be a good way to do it. I wrote down big goals, like buying a home and having children, and small goals like having a picnic and reading at least two books a month. I ended up with a whopping 104 total goals! #canyoubelieveit #holdme

Ricky & I headed to our birthday sushi date
I divided them all up into categories so I wouldn't lose my mind, and then I set to work! I've already checked a couple of my one time goals off (replace Ricky's Mustang with a more reliable car) and other goals that are cyclical in nature I've made notes of when I'm accomplishing them (read two books each month--checked off for April & May). I'm not setting a time limit on the whole list, but I do have times marked on many of the individual items. I just want to make sure I'm moving in the right direction on these things!
I feel like this could be a really good exercise that might help some of you out there as well, so I'm sharing it here! Some of the goals I came up with are a little personal, and that's waayyyy to many to expect you all to read through--so I thought in honor of my 26th birthday this past weekend I'd just give you 26 examples that are on my list.
