The older I get the faster times seems to go by. I was having a conversation with my roommate who is 64 and she told me that she experiences the same thing. Before she knows it, Christmas is here again and another birthday. On the 24th of this month I will be turning 27. I thought that for my act of self love I would think about ten things I would like to do before I am 30 years old.:) Here I go…
1.) Write and publish my book
2.) Move to Malibu to work with a dear friend and soul sister at her eating disorder facility
3.) Enter into the dating world and begin to explore relationships with others
4.) Go skydiving
5.) Lead a weekend retreat for those in recovery in the wilderness using nature and art
6.) Travel somewhere across the U.S
7.) Visit Africa and help those effected by genital mutilation
8.) PASS MY BOARDS FOR PSYCHOLOGY (IN THE NEXT 6 MONTHS)
9.) GO PAINTBALLING WITH MY GOOD FRIEND
10.) Try to break my high school mile time of 5 minutes and 30 seconds. (Try being the key word.:))
I realize that some of these are pretty big—that’s me…pretty ambitious…so in this moment my self love goal is to also not demand anything of myself…but to move with the energy that flows through my soul into the universe and vice VERSA. I believe that anything is possible…and I will do anything I set my mind to.
What are some of the things on your bucket list? What do you desire for yourself? I believe that the things I most desire for myself are not easy to measure in life: self love, trusting others more, intimacy and building community. In these next three years I also desire these things to come in more as well.
Love and light,
