Embracing 25: Setting Sail & Mapping My Goals

Hey there!

I turned 25 this week, and despite not being able to celebrate my birthday the way I had wanted, I’m genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I’ve always held a special excitement for turning 25, seeing it as a pivotal point in my life’s journey. Considering the average human lifespan hovering around 75 years, I’ve got 50 more years to make the most of. As I look forward to the next 50 years, I’ve been jotting down my major life goals. While I’ve been compiling this 50 goals list for about a month now, I’ve only managed to write down 25 goals thus far. But hey, they’re not just any goalsβ€”they’re the experiences I want to have at some point in my life.

While I may not have reached the full list of 50 goals just yet, I’m excited to share the initial 25 with you. As I continue to grow and navigate life’s twists and turns, I have no doubt that I’ll uncover new passions, dreams, and ambitions along the way. So, consider this list just the beginningβ€”a snapshot of my aspirations as I embark on what promises to be an extraordinary journey ahead.
