(Update at the Bottom of the Post)

It's officially my 29th birthday today and I'm so excited for what's in store for me this year! I'm claiming abundance and growth in my life this year and I'm going to try and seize every opportunity to move forward in my life!

I also share this special day with Martin Luther King Jr. and I always try and acknowledge his legacy on this day!

Happy Birthday MLK Jr. !

Although my intentions were good for making this list, I have unfortunately managed to only complete a few things. Some of the goals I have for this list are unrealistic for the time limit, since I am a stay at home and student. I'm looking forward to knocking these goals off my list for the remainder of the months and the next year moving forward. Making this list has helped me to have fun goals for things that I have always wanted to do. I'm looking forward to turning 30 and reaching another milestone in my life.


Have you made a list like this for a birthday? How successful were you in completing it?
