My 31st Birthday Bucket List

Each year I make a birthday bucket list, things I want to do before the next year. The number of things totals the age I am. So, this year I had 31 one things to do before I turned 32. It helps that my birthday is in December, so it’s really like a New Year’s resolution but a bit more ambitious.

I do not always get to do all of the things because planning out your life is for fools. Sometimes God has different plans, so it’s best to follow Him and what He wants to do. I was able to accomplish 61% of my goals – I am okay with that as 7% of the goals had to be removed because God changed some things up on me.

Here are some of the highlights I did this year.

Also, I put them in categories because I am that person.
