  5. Wow, those are a whole lot of goals! How are you faring so far? Does the list rather motivate or stress you? I’ll pop over your friend’s blog to see what it’s all exactly about 😉 Keep up your spirits and hope you’ll manage your goals before 35 🙂 Good luck ❤

    • Well… The ones in italics are the ones I’ve done. I have numbers on the ongoing things for how much success I’ve had. I think you’re right on… It motivates AND stresses me. I like it enough that I’ve already decided to do it next year, but I think I’m going to focus more on fun experiences that I want to push myself to try. Thanks for looking!

      • That might be a very good way to do it – focusing on fun stuff! One tends to be so (too…) ambitious – at least I know I do… sometimes it’s important to let it go a bit and just enjoy the moment. It would have to be a good and healthy balance between the two things^^. Thanks a lot for the follow btw – I truly appreciate it ❤

      • I liked your blog 🙂 and… Yes. I have too many things I have to do every week on here. I was really ambitious about making over my whole life.
