30 Before 30 Bucket List

If you've heard of this trend, it's essentially a bucket list before your 30th birthday. Growing up I never thought 30 is something I would ever get to see or think about, so this has all been a bit of a shock as I am a few months away from my own 30th birthday. It feels so repetitive talking about it, and I imagine it can be a bit annoying, but it is so impactful and amazing to me, that I'm still somehow kicking it all these years later. I have a friend, also with CF who is doing her own 30 before 30 bucket list and absolutely smashing it, so I thought it looked fun and should be something I try, even if I can only cross one or two things off the list. A little progress is better than none, right? I love seeing other people accomplish their own goals and find it massively motivating.

 I've had a mini bucket list but I've never really been one to visualize a long-term future, so coming up with a lot of goals was quite difficult. I spent a long time trying to figure out not only who I am now as a 29 year old woman with Cystic Fibrosis, living a semi-normal life thanks to Trikafta. I spent even more time thinking about what seems to matter the most to me right now and what I want my priorities to be moving forward with the time I still have.

Without further ado, I give you my 30 Before 30 List in no particular order.

1. Make my own stickers
2. Run for 3 minutes straight
3. Get engaged
4. Take an illustrator course
5. Take a trip by myself
6. Buy a car
7. Take Aiden to the ocean
8. Take a professional cooking lesson
9. Get a therapist
10. Learn how to swim
11. Drive on the interstate
12. Get a monthly massage
13. Narrate an audiobook
14. Complete a social media marketing course
15. Fix keratosis pilaris
16. Control my diabetes for 3 months
17. Go out with a new friend
18. Declutter 100 items
19. Do a 30 day zero spend challenge
20. Maintain self care for 30 days
21. Work as a children's librarian or volunteer
22. Do something I'm afraid of
23. Generate $5,000 in income
24. Complete half of a Spanish Course
25. Give back to the community
26. Create my own community of like-minded moms
27. Create a coloring book
28. Provide a guitar to a teen with a terminal illness undergoing long term hospital stays
29. Reach 47% fev1
30. Teach a mini course

This is what I could come up with in such short notice. I invite you to make your own list, or your own 35 before 35 list, or however old you are. Find something you've always wanted to do, and do it now! It's never too late to try.
