40 Things To Do Before I Turn 40

40 Things To Do Before I Turn 40

To celebrate my 39th birthday, I made a list of 40 things I want to do before I turn 40 years old on November 6. I want to end my thirties with a bang, and continue to learn, grow, and experiment along the way!

You can read my list below (it’s in no particular order). Also, I’ll blog about my adventures this year, so stay tuned for essays and photographs!

1. More adventures with Logan (local and abroad)

4. Connect, grow and learn about writing at the Academy

5. When in Paris, walk, walk and walk.

6. Try all the things in Paris (see the sights, eat bread, cheese, chocolate, drink coffee & more)

31. Learn about intuitive eating

32. Buy a small bookshelf

33. Take frequent social media sabbaticals (or quit social media)

35. Be a better friend (write weekly letters, send care-packages, listen more & talk less)

36. Get a professional headshot for my website

37. Create a new photography & writing course

38. Write for Flow Magazine

39. Grow my newsletter

40. Stay in my lane (e.g., stop worrying about things that are outside my sphere of control)

With gratitude,


Can our minds be hijacked?
