Birthday Bucket List


When I celebrated my birthday in January I made a Birthday Bucket List of 30 things that I wanted to do before my next birthday. In the past I had made small list of a few things that I wanted to do before my next birthday cycled around but nothing to the extent that I did for this year. The list is in no particular order and list things that I plan to check off my list. As you review the list you will find that a few have already been marked as Done. I will circle back around in December to provide a follow-up to let you all know what I’ve marked off the list. Here’s my list:

  1. Cut my hair into a short style. (Done) 🙂
  2. Forgive someone. (Done) (I forgave someone that I felt like I would never bring myself to forgive). 🙂
  3. Go on a spontaneous trip with my Sister, Best Friend or Both.
  4. Splurge on something that I want without having any regrets.
  5. Speak in public.
  6. See a therapist. I want to sit or lay on their couch and clear my head.
