I’m Turning 30. Now What?

First Deloitte event after I made the big move to Boston! (Summer 2018)

In exactly one month, I will hit the next decade. One that causes many people to flip a shit. I wouldn’t say I’m nervous about turning 30, but I wouldn’t go as far as saying I’m ecstatic about getting older (is anyone really?). But I’m not freaking out about it.

Honestly, I look better than I did in my early- / mid-twenties.

I’m in a loving relationship.

I have a good job with a good salary.

I live in a bomb apartment in a fabulous city.

Not to mention, five years ago I wasn’t traveling – internationally or domestically – the way I do now. Things are great. But they can always be better.

Drastic hair change (but I loved it!) and my amazing boyfriend. (Spring 2018)

I starting conjuring up a list of things I want to do upon turning 30. Some of them are things I’ve tried and failed before, and some of them are brand spankin’ new.

  1. Read at least one book every two months before my next birthday
  2. Spend more time with family
  3. Drink at least 100 oz of water per day
  4. Avoid spending my own money one week each month (non-work)
  5. Stretch more. Foam roll more. Get more massages.
  6. Save an extra $150 per month
  7. Avoid calling myself fat
  8. Sign up for a new type of race
  9. Go to the movies alone
  10. Deadlift 275 lbs / backsquat 225 lbs or more
  11. Make more time for phone calls with family and friends
  12. Speed up mile jog pace (which means TRAINING, Brynn!)
  13. Spend more time at home in Boston
  14. Buy myself more flowers
  15. Travel to a new city, domestic or international
  16. Strive for my leanest body while maintaining a balanced life
  17. Spend less time on my phone around friends, family, and bae
  18. Try one new Boston restaurant a month
  19. Complete a detox diet (i.e. no added sugar, Whole 30)
  20. Learn a new skill
  21. Do something new at work
  22. Purge my closet of unused shoes and clothes
  23. Finish decorating my apartment
  24. Workout at least twice a week while at client site
  25. Spend more alone / quiet time with bae
  26. Create (and stick to) a general budget
  27. Go to ten historic sites or museums in Boston
  28. Organize my closets
  29. Make a new financial investment
  30. Focus on eating less processed foods
Disney Princess Half Marathon 2019 – Need more amazing, thrilling, difficult events in the future.

We’ll see how far I get, but it’ something to strive toward next year!

Are you hitting a milestone? Even if you’re not, do you have any goals you’re trying to achieve?

XOXO,

Brynn
