Saying Goodbye to My Youth

I'm 29 years old today! Which means I only have one year left before I'm shoved into the 30 and older box and no am longer considered "young" "hip" or "in the know". Why not take this once in a lifetime chance and live it up?

There are a few things I'd like to do before I turn 30. Writing related things are high on the list, but life is on there as well. I think we all need to take time every once in a while and share our dreams with those around us. Therefore, here is a short list of things I want to do before I'm 30.

1. Hike to the top of Lone Peak. I've only hiked to the top of one other mountain - Timpanogos. It's been twelve years since that happened. I think it's time to do some more conquering.

2. Ride a zip line. I'm terrified of heights. I've totally chickened out each time I've been given the chance to ride one. I will conquer it this year!

Even this picture freaks me out a little.

3. Practice the piano at least three times a week. I'm terrible at playing the piano. It's been years since I've practiced faithfully. This is the year to change that.

4. Take my kids camping. I'm doing this, this weekend. I'm even taking the baby. I want to get over my hesitations of always needing to be comfortable. I'm almost 30! It's time I gained some courage.

There you have it. This is the year to conquer my fears and hesitations. What's on your bucket list?
