34 Goals for my 34th Year of Life.


So I’m sitting outside in the sunshine on the day after my 34th birthday. I’ve grown alot from whom I use to be. I was shy, scared and just afraid of life. Not anymore…. I’m a woman now. I want to live my best live ever and I want to continue to grow and become even more of what I’m meant to be!

Last week, someone suggested this awesome idea to make a goal list of 34 goals for my 34th year walking this earth. I love goals, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to be breaking it down into daily, weekly, and monthly goals in the coming days…. please allow me to share the master list with all of you. Enjoy!
