29 things for my 29th year

29 things

Last year on my 28th birthday I made a list of 28 things.  Things including goals I had for myself, general affirmations, reminders to myself and and some positive inspiration.  I didn’t share it here, I just stuck it on the wall by my bed (at the suggestion of Jessica – that post has just stuck in my mind!) and looked at it often.

So on this, the start of the last year in my 20’s, I’m sharing 29 things for my 29th year.  I felt like I had to organize them in some way so there are a few that I want to do, a few to remember to say to myself often, and then a few other general good thoughts and words to live by.

To do:

Invest in people and relationships.

Discover unexpected things.

Practice faith.

Believe I am strong.

Don’t settle.

Work my ass off.

Listen intentionally.

Be more spontaneous.

Look forward.

Give grace.

Change for the better.

Celebrate something every day.

Ask for help when I need it.

Be content.

Dance, just because.

Be awesome.

Strive for authenticity.


Tell myself:

You are good enough.

You are beautiful.

Let it go.

Challenge yourself.

Be unapologetic.

Run your own race.


Words to live by:

Quality is always better than quantity.

More love, less hustle.

Live imperfectly with great delight.

Savor little moments.

You can do it today.

Believe something wonderful is about to happen.

    I love this list, especially the things to tell yourself and words to live by. “Live imperfectly with great delight” really struck me. I’m going to remember that one. Happy 29th! Cheers to a wonderful year!

    Im late to the game here… but turning 29 in a few months. I am totally embracing this and going to work on my own list! >< I really need to work on telling myself I am good enough every day. It's possibly the hardest thing I need to do. But I am going to get better at it. Cheers to you! Id love a check up each month on where you are on these!
