Don’t let your dreams be dreams.

It’s been awhile…  But I’m back to blogging!  I’ve been in a bit of a motivation rut the past few months.  It’s far too easy to put off your dreams and goals, telling yourself, tomorrow.  However, if it is important to you, why not start today?  There are only so many tomorrows.I’ve decided to break my adventure list down into some smaller, yearly goals.  I definitely want to accomplish this entire list in my lifetime, but setting specific goals for this year will make it more likely that I will be able to accomplish them.

63729d6d81693eb4fbd1acc2fd6b87cdI’ve picked out 26 things off my adventure list to cross off this year before I turn 26.  There are a couple that I actually did earlier this year, so I will be posting about them soon.  I’ve got about 5 months left until my birthday to cross off the rest.  🙂

  1. I love this! So many people fail to actually write out their goals and therefor never accomplish them! Good for! Keep on dreaming and you will accomplish all your goals!

    One of my goals: to never stop traveling 🙂
