Life | 30 before 30 - Did I Do It?!


On the eve of my 25th birthday, I decided to set myself a little challenge. I wasn't in a very good place in my life and felt like I was in a "dead-end" job and had nothing to look forward to ect ect. The list was of goals was supposed to jump start my attitude towards life and to want to better myself by doing things I never normally thought to do.

And that's where 30 before 30 came along! I decided on 30 things that I would like to do/change in my life before I reached the milestone 30 years old! I added things that I'd always wanted to do, things that were easy and some that even back then felt they would never actually happen.

Now I will admit that a couple of things in my list has changed due to my circumstances. I never tried to make them "easier" or "more likely to happen" so I finished them sooner 

1. Visit America
2. Lose weight and keep it off 
3. Go on at least 3 holidays
4. Visit Ireland
5. Buy a new camera 
6. Go to DisneyLand
7. Get my first tattoo
8. Reach 1000 followers! 
9. Find a career I love 
10. Get my own place
11. Learn a new skill 
12. Visit three UK cities I've never been to before
13. Give blood 
14. Bake and cook more from scratch 
15. Learn how to contour!
16. Create my ideal skincare routine 
17. Find love
18. Plant fruit, veg and flowers in my garden – and keep them alive 
19. Be more spontaneous 
20. Buy a diary and actually use it
21. Learn how to save money and not spend it! 
22. Have a weekend away by the seaside 
23. Go on a road trip
24. Grow my hair to be long and still healthy
25. Go on a spa day 
26. Bit of a long run, but get married!
27. Learn photography 
28. Visit Italy
29. Learn to not compare myself to other
30. Get a promotion

The results are in and I managed to complete 19 out of the 30 things. That's 64%!

Obviously, it's not the 100% I originally wanted but since some of them in my mind were "long runs" and never going to happen, I think I did pretty good.

Obviously my biggest achievement since 2015 was finding Sean and falling in head over heels in love with him. Life is amazing now and I couldn't have asked for a better husband.
