Proclamation 31


(I realize now that proclamation is misspelled- I'll add that to my list of things to learn!)

On the eve of my 31st birthday I'd like to lay out a plan for myself.  This won't be like the 30 before 30 list where there were a bunch of things I wanted to do to make me feel like I had lived a little in my 20's.

This will stand alone to make me a better person.  There are some things I want to learn, do, see, and try but also things I want to be or become.  In my 31st year I plan, or at least hope, to become "ME."

When I'm 31 I will....

learn to:
  • use chop sticks
  • knit or crochet
  • decorate baked goods
  • cook more unique meals
go to:
  • Vermont- my grandparent's cabin
  • Nashville- hopefully to see the next KLOVE awards
  • Philadelphia at least 3 times- I need to learn and love my new city
  • Walk the Brooklyn Bridge
see:
  • concerts- any and all that I can get to, I love music and want to see more and always hold myself back
  • a Broadway play/musical- it's been ages since I've been to one and I'm tired of waiting
  • the taping of a show- any show.  It's something I've always wanted to experience and I'm tired of waiting
become:
  • a better listener
  • a better friend (by listening and being more attentive in general)
  • a better family member by being more involved and connected
  • a Proverbs 31 woman
  • a happy by complaining less and appreciating what I have more
  • less attached to my cell phone and start actually experiencing life
The become is absolutely the most important part of this list.  I need to become the person I've always wanted to be.  Everything else will be icing on the cake.

I'll be tracking and posting about the progress of this list as the year goes on.
