40 by 40

2017 is a year of many things for different people. Last year I chose the word “GROWTH” for my word for the year. This year it is looking more like “FEARLESS” will be my word. As I approach 40 I want to be happy about the number, not fearful. Currently I want to be able to state I have done something more than just being a wife and a mom. But in life, opportunities that came I was too scared to do, or worse I wouldn’t even consider because of some fear I had. I no longer want to NOT do things. Here is my 40 by 40 Bucket List. I’d love to see your bucket list.

  1. Go river rafting
  2. Take my kids camping
  3. Go fishing
  4. Visit some of the local farms (Kelsay Farms/Watermann’s Family Farm)
  5. Lose 60lbs
  6. Enter my first 5K walk
  7.  Have a garden that actually has fruits and/or Vegetables.
  8. Join a softball team
  9. Learn to swim
  10. Learn to ski
