10 Things I am Doing Before I Turn 30....

You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it. ~ Charles Buxton

I think pretty much everyone who is going to turn 30 or who is no longer 5 yrs away from turning 30 starts to freak out and think....OMG I am going to be OLD....or at least that is kind of how I feel. I mean I know by all means 30 is NOT old, far from it, but it is "that age" that signals you are no longer in your 20's and it really is time to start settling down/planning if you haven't for your future. I am 27 turning 28 this year and as my best friend and I always say....OMG we are so close to 30....it is scary.....

So this is what I have planned a "Goal list" of sorts.....10 Things I am going to do before I'm 30.... I will also blog about each one! :) *I promise* It is going to be the kick off to my "Adult years" ha, ha, ha, ha.

So here goes....

1. Get a tattoo. - I have wanted this for a LONG time and I keep putting it off, so as they say "No time like the present!"

2. Travel outside of Canada - I have done this, but it was to a Nascar race. It was for work....so really it was not a purely fun trip. I want a fun trip out of Canada!

3. Volunteer on a regular basis. - I have volunteered for events before, but I want to actually sign up and volunteer my time on a regular basis to a association/organization that helps people on a daily basis.

4. Have concrete plans to go back to school. - I want to either do my BA in Psychology, or go back to college to become a Social Worker.

5. Throw a successful charity event. - Raise money for a worth while cause.

6. Find the right shade of Red lipstick! I have been searching forever for this shade and let me tell you I have failed. I want to find a shade of red lipstick that suits me!

7. Make $1000 in one year selling Avon. I have sold Avon for quite some time now and I haven't really made a profit. I have regular customers....but I need to build my business further....

8. Go to a spa....I have never gone, however I deserve to be pampered!

9. Find a good guy. I know that they say when you are looking you are less likely to find one, so I am giving up and letting nature take it's course! What will be will be! :)

10. Take a photography course! I love photography, I would like to learn how to do it better! So I think I would like to take a course to learn better techniques of photography!

Dream a dream....

Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will. ~ Zig Ziglar
Do you remember when you were young and your imagination was never ending? You believed anything was possible. That you could be a superhero, a doctor, a lawyer or even a movie star.
When did that change? When did we all start to believe that it wasn't possible? Was it when negativity started to enter our lives? When we decided we couldn't possibly do what seems so far beyond our reach? Or is it that we all just became too content with settling for less?
I think we need to revert back to that time, the time when you believed nothing was unachievable. When we all had the unmistakable drive and dreams. That anything is within our reach. Do you think if we all started to revert to that way of thinking that the world would be a better place?
I don't know? But it really gets you thinking.
