30 Before 30 Update

The fifth item on my 12 Goals for 2012 is to complete 5 things on my 30 before 30 list. I started this year with low expectations, but high hopes. So far, I feel as though I’ve gone through a major transformation.

I am going going to blow past my goal of five this year. In fact, I completed six within the first four months. Wow.

2. Be vegetarian for a month – done!

4. Get another stamp in my passport – done!

7. Skydive – done!

18. Read 52 books in 52 weeks – done!

19. Buy at least 3 vegetables I’ve never tried before. Eat them. – started

20. Create a new painting – done!

28. Have a cocktail at a classy restaurant – done!

30. Do something that terrifies me – started

I’m pleased with the fact that once I put my mind to doing many of these things, I did them.

Have you completed any major goals for the year or things you wanted to do? Have you felt like your life is changing for the better?

    I went skiing yesterday, and it was so scary! They gave me no instruction and took me to the top of a hill and were like okay go. Needless to say, I faceplanted down the entire hill, and got snow all up in my clothes. But it was amazing once I got the hang of it!

    Now, I must go skiing!!!
