My Top 30 Things to Complete Before 30

I have always had this weird, irrational fear of getting older. I had anxiety about my 20th birthday. Like I said weird. I have not been looking forward to turning 30 for as long as I can remember. I don’t know what it is about 30 that gives me so much anxiety. I’m already married, and a mother of 3. The BIG things in my life have already happened. I’m sure when I’m past it, it won’t seem so bad. I will probably even look back and laugh at my fear. But until then, here we are.

In January 2020 I’ll be turning 30 years old. The list of things I want to accomplish between then and now is long. I have managed to taper it down to 30, in the hope I will be actually able to achieve some of them. Thus, 30 before 30 was born. Hopefully, by crossing items off my list I will be distracted from the actual ageing part and I will be able to fly past my 30th birthday and focus on my next list.

A dream wrote down becomes a goal. Many of these have been dreams for a while,  Now these are goals, and I hope to cross them all off the list. As I progress through it I will update the list; many of them will have their own posts to go with them so stay tuned for those as well.

So check this post often and see what I have completed.

Do you have a 30-before-30, or any other bucket list?

My Top 30 Things to Complete Before 30


My husband & I have a travel bucket list, but now I want to make a 30 before 30! I turn 30 in 2022!

My travel bucket list is long.

This is a great list.. I have started one too as I turn 30 in October of 2020 and noticed a lot of similarities b/t you and I. I also have 3 kids not married yet, but I’ve been with my kids father for 10 years.. Anyway, I will have to add some of these things to my list!

Great list! Good luck on your adventures!!

This a great idea to have a bucket list however I’m over 30 just 4 years but I have done a lot of thing throughout my life. I do believe when you hit the 30 this would be like a mid life area where you would want to endure more in life so I have created a bucket list and developing concepts to complete them. Thanks for sharing. I also had my senior citizen mom create one as well since she retired this give her something to do.

I already am working on my next one, I love that you had your mom make one!

This is a great list! I particularly love your last one – keep going!

I swam with dolphins and crossed that off my list. Had a kid so check that one off! Now a lot has changed but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I should probably write down a new list 🙂

Yes, my list changed a lot after having children.

This is great! A lot to do & visit!! Don’t stress yourself out and feel bad if you don’t accomplish everything.

That is great advice!

This is a great list! I never made a 30 before 30 list, but I love the idea.

I’m working on my next one already.

This is a great list. There are definitely a bunch I wish to do.

I hope to do them all

What a cool list. White water rafting is on my list too but I am also terrified of it :-p

A lot of my list I am also sort of afraid of.

Just making this list in and of itself is a goal of mine. I need to do it and prioritize!

Yes that was half the battle for me.

This is a great list! I see a few that I’d like to do too! I hope you get to do all of them! 🙂
