30 Things Before Turning 30 Years Old

Can we all take a moment to acknowledge it will be 2015 in a few days?

2015. Let that sink in a bit.

This is the year, friends. This is the year I run hard and fast toward God. This is the year I spend more time focusing on myself than pleasing others. This is the year I get my act together. And, this is the year I turn 30.


That’s kind of a big deal, right?

I know some people have a well thought-out agenda, timeline, or game plan of where they’d like to be by the time they’re 30. According to my Facebook feed, I should either be getting engaged, buying a house (or some other big ticket item) or having a baby. Instead, I’m accumulating debt after I decided to quit my job, move 3,000 miles to Seattle, and start attending grad school at the ripe ole’ age of 28. Needless to say, I think I shot down any chance for a so-called “timeline” when I signed onto this new life. So, no game plan for this girl, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to set up a nice, realistic, list of the things I want to accomplish this year…
