Another year has gone by and I can hardly believe that I’m only two years away from the big “THREE, OH”. I’m legit excited ya’ll. As I sit here with a wiggling child in my lap, I feel like I have finally entered into one of my best seasons in life. This is just the beginning.

Don’t get me wrong; my 20’s have been fantastic and filled with lots of accomplishments, adventure, self discovery and plenty of love. I’m just thrilled to see what will come next for me in the next decade of my life.

But my 20’s aren’t done just yet, so I figured that I would jump on this 30 by 30 bandwagon here and set some goals for myself accomplish by my 30th birthday. Some of these are way out there, and more of them are achievable. But I really want to close out my 20’s with a bang, so here’s to trying to complete every single one of these!

Since these are real goals for me, I’ll be using the S.M.A.R.T Goal system that I talked about in an old post. Feel free to check it out and get your free printable!

There are a lot of things in here that are ambitious (or wishful thinking according to my husband lol). But there are also a lot of things on this list that definitely obtainable with a bit of hard work and positivity and focus!

What are some of your long term goals? And how do you plan to achieve them?
