I turned 40 this year. Some of my friends purchased high end items to honor their 40th birthday, some had a baby, while others just celebrated quietly with a few friends/family members. None of those options really called out to me [especially the birthing baby’s thing]. It was then that I decided that my celebration had to be new travel experiences. The destinations were irrelevant. The purposes were irrelevant. The only thing that mattered was getting my feet moving.
Goal 5: Discovered the joys of a Colorado Dude Ranch
Goal 6: Finally managed to stand upright on a surf board in Hawaii
Although some of these goals weren’t set in stone at the beginning of the year, they have been on my bucket list of things I’ve wanted to do. I feel very blessed to have been able to accomplish them. I discovered that I loved my 40th Birthday goal of traveling & experiencing as many new things as I possibly could. It’s not something that will stop at the end of this year. It’s something that I need to continue doing until I can’t any longer. Like my career that I love so much, traveling is my passion.
