26 Things I Want To Have Achieved In 24 Years Time

26 Things I Want To Have Achieved In 24 Years Time

Today I turn 26 years old. The number definitely sounds a lot older than I feel inside, however on the outside is a different story! I love reading other posts like the ’26 things I’ve learnt in 26 years’ but I don’t think I would be able to find 26 things! So I am going to throw caution to the wind and do a ’26 Things I Want To Have Achieved In 24 Years Time’ post (as thats how many years until I turn 50!!!).

In no particular order I want to have:

1. Bought a house with bi-fold doors into a beautifully decorated garden.

2. Visited at least 20 different places in the UK.

3. Got married surrounded by all my favourite people!

4. Added a puppy to our family.

5. Donated blood more than 50 times!

6. Made new friends and experienced new people.

7. Host a murder mystery night.

8. Seen the Northern Lights.

9. Changed the World in some way, no matter how small!

10. Been in a hot air balloon.

11. Learnt a new language.

12. Written a book even if I am the only one who ever sees it!

13. Fostered at least 2 children until they are ready to find their forever family!

14. Experienced camping.

15. Spent some time volunteering!

16. Taken part in a protest!

17. Taken my children to Disney World!!

18. Found myself, my fashion, my style etc.

19. Visited 10 other countries.

20. Learnt an instrument or at least be learning.

21. Witnessed a meteor shower.

22. Potentially had at least one more baby!

23. Worked my way up in my career or have started a complete new career.

24. Maybe even had grandchildren!!

25. Maintained an excellent relationship with my children and be here to watch them succeed.

26. Added to this blog for 28+ years as a way of capturing many more memories.

So there are my ’26 Things I Want To Have Achieved In 24 Years Time’. I actually found that a lot easier than I thought and I know there are probably so many things missing. However I hope to have many more years after 50 to tick a few more things off my list!

What would be on your list of things to do before turning 50?

    A lovely list. I would have some very similar things on mine with the addition of: a kitchen with an island unit in it, a bookcase so tall that I need a ladder to use, the worlds comfiest chair next to the book case!

      Oh yes a kitchen with an island unit is a must! And floor to ceiling bookcases would be lovely too 🙂
