40 before 40

Spending my first week of 39 relaxing on spring break at home gave me time to think about what I want to do and accomplish as I travel around the sun for the last time in my 30s. In the last 39 years, I have overcome many obstacles and have had many accomplishments, but there are so many more accomplishments yet to be had. It is time to start emptying out my “someday drawer” and start turning dreams into reality. So here is a list of accomplishments I am looking to achieve this coming year. Some new and some just more of what I love and enjoy. Some getting me closer to achieving big dreams and some don’t relate to big dreams at all.

  1. More time with my faves!                             IMG_8040
  2. More time with family and friends.
  3. Enjoy more dog cuddles.
  4. More SUP!
  5. More snow shoeing.
  6. Swim like a fish this year!
  7. bike, Bike, BIKE!!
  8. Find my run speed again.
  9. Remain injury-free by incorporating functional strength consistently into my workout routine.

  1. I love this list! Well…all except for the camping, but whatever rubs your Buddha 😉 Have a great 40th year Kecia.

    1. It is a big list, but a lot of these I do on a regular basis. I thought specifically of you with “smile more.” You are always in the back of my mind as a reminder “to measure my success by the size of my smile.” 😃
