I’ve always been one of those people who has lots of goals they want to achieve in life, whether it be personal achievements, career goals or travels. So I thought I’d share with you the list all about 30 things to do before I’m 30. I made the below list when I turned 18! WOW that was a good few years ago now.. As you will see I have already crossed a few things off my list since then 🙂

As you can see I have a lot of work to do to be able to achieve all 30 goals, but I do have  4 and 1/2 years to try and achieve all of the listed above! I felt ‘Being Happy‘ is an important goal to achieve everyday not just until you are 30, and always being yourself [or being able to find yourself] is key to life satisfaction. I know sometimes life doesn’t pan out how you hope therefore I am willing to accept that some of the goals may not fall into place before I am 30 – but we will see how it all goes 🙂

Are you a goal setter?

Do you have a list of things you’d love to achieve before a milestone? I’d love to hear what’s on your bucket list!

    I love that you wrote all of your goals down – and they are ALL attainable! Good for you, girly. It’s so cool to see your goals crossed off, it gives me motivation to create a similar list and feel that accomplishment.

    Emma, your life goals are amazing!! I love how you’ve mixed big goals with smaller ones to sort of balance everything out, because I feel if goals are set to high, it’s alot harder to reach them. So starting out small is Great! I’m curious to know more about the blogging event you went too! Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Kayla! One day was I was 18 I sat down and wrote a load of goals, I was nervous about sharing some of them, but glad you enjoyed reading about them! The blogger event I went to was: https://lifeofemmax.co.uk/2018/05/06/the-body-shop-blogger-event/ hosted by The Body Shop and Southampton bloggers – it was a lovely event.

    I think it’s always so helpful to write down your goals and know what you strive for.
    I am certainly a goal setter.
    At the beginning of each year I go: This is the year that…. and i fill it up with my goal for that year.
    This has been a pretty succesful way for me to reach my goals, because I didn’t fail to commit for the last few years.
    I did get my drivers license, I did get my very own first house.
    Setting a goal and focusing your attention towards it, greatly helps 🙂

    I want Louboutin’s for my wedding too! Reading through this list was really interesting! I am in the same boat as you as there are so many of these things that are on my list too. This was a good read and I hope that you achieve them all! x

  13. June 3, 2018 / 11:13 am

    Love your list! It’s good that you’ve managed to tick off quite a few already as well! I’d love to run the London marathon too but it’ll take a few years to train for that haha!
