Achievements Before 30

So to follow up with my Turning 30 – Things I want to do post I thought I would do things I’m glad I’ve done before turning 30 – Achievements before 30.  So I don’t actually turn 30 until November but there is always negativity around turning 30, where you thought you would be in life.. and where you actually are.  Instead of thinking about what you haven’t achieved I thought I would think about what I have achieved.  So here goes:

    1. I have been to places like: Sri Lanka, Dubai, Thailand, Mexico, Cape Verde, Cuba, America, Egypt, Las Vegas, Europe.  I won’t list them all but these are to name a few.
    2. Rode an Elephant
    3. Rode a Camel
    4. Climbed Sigiryia Rock – Sri Lanka
    5. Visited Phi Phi Islands – Thailand
    6. Swam with Dolphins – Mexico
    7. Visited the Pyramids
    8. Won money in Las Vegas

  1. Driven a car/mini-bus abroad – America
  2. Been to Disney Land Paris & Disney World Florida
  3. Been on a Cruise – actually been on 5!
  4. Been in a Cenote.
  5. Jeep ride in the Desert – Dubai
  6. Been to Coco Bongos
  7. Got a Tattoo abroad – Thailand and Mexico
  8. Climbed a Temple – Mexico
  9. Started Pole Classes
  10. Member of the Gym
  11. Got Engaged
  12. Worked in America
  13. Finally met a friend I’ve known since I was 14 who lives in Australia.
  14. Gone up the largest building in the world – Burj Kahlifa
  15. Visited an Elephant Orphanage
  16. Traveled to the other side of the World ALONE!
  17. Bought jewellery in Tiffany’s in New York City
  18. Drove a Canal Boat
  19. Been up the Empire State Building
  20. Started Blogging
  21. Organised a successful Blogger Event
  22. Quad biking in the desert – Cape Verde & Egypt
  23. Driven a Speed Boat – Cuba
  24. Been to a shooting range – so much fun!  I shot the target every time yey! – Thailand
  25. Driven from Las Vegas to Los Angeles
  26. Traveled in a Tuk Tuk
  27. Been to University – Drama & Dance
  28. Level 3 trained Beauty Therapist
  29. Qualified Support Worker
  30. Have my own Mobile Beauty Therapist business
  31. Started learning to Crochet
  32. I can play the Clarinet
  33. Ran in a Race For Life
  34. Caught the bouquet at a wedding!

So there we have it, I think I have done quite well and this is only the start.  I will have to come up with lots of things to achieve in my 30’s.  Turning 30 can be scary for a lot of us but at the end of the day it is only a number, try thinking of all the things you have done in life so far and all of the things you have to look forward to.  It really does make you feel a lot better.  Celebrate what you have achieved and always look towards the future, you will probably realise you have achieved more than you thought.  We all need to stop thinking about what we haven’t done as it is never to late to do it.

    Woah! That’s amazing! Most people don’t even do all of this in their whole lives so I’d say you’re doing pretty well! Also, we did the same degree! 😀 Great minds think alike! xxx

    Well done to you lovely – it’s so nice to see all your photos too and this is what life is about! It’s about doing what you love, visiting places, travelling and seeing what you want to see in life! It’s things like this which will last forever so you’ve done really well! 🙂

    I still have such a list of things I want to do by 30!
