27 Things for my 27th Birthday Bucket List!

This post may contain affiliate links. You can read my full disclosure in the sidebar.

Do you have a bucket list that includes things you would like to do one day? What if you took a few things from that list and set a goal to accomplish them before your next birthday, called it a Birthday Bucket List? Would that not make each year more interesting? I think so!

Since I am officially 27 today, I think it would be fun to share my Birthday Bucket List with you to give you a few ideas of what you could accomplish in one year! My list includes goals I’d like to achieve and adventurous things that I hope to achieve. The combination will for sure keep things interesting all year long!

However, the biggest benefit to creating a birthday bucket list is to bring more intention into your life. Without a purpose, what is the point in waking up each morning? Creating intention and a sense of purpose makes life much more exciting!

What does your list consist of? Will it be things you can accomplish quickly or will it be a long term task? Let me know below in the comments! Lastly, I want to let you with this thought:

Nothing can buy happiness; it is a mood. Choose your mood wisely, and do not take it for granted.

      Thank you, Rachel! Yes ma’am! I most definitely agree with that! My goal this year is to keep focus on the future and experience more life. I am usually like a hermit crab and stay in my circle, and it is getting kind of old.

    Haha I like the idea of thinking of your birthday as the 2nd anniversary of your 25th. I feel the same way! You have listed some great goals. What kind of novel are you writing?

      You know most choose 29 or 39, but I say go for something that does not make you dread the next year! haha! I mean 25 is no closer to 30 than it is 20! I hate telling people I am closer to 30 than 20 *insert really distressed sad face*! As far as the novel goes, I do have a few ideas, but I am working to see if they can be developed into a full novel. I am leaning towards the fiction genre, but not sure specifics just yet.

    Happy birthday girlie! I have to say, I loved turning 30, it just feels right. Anyway, I love your goals…what a great idea to make them for your birthday instead of New Years. have you heard of Miracle Mornings? I have learned to love getting up early because of that book!

      Thank you, Terryn!! I do not know about turning 30, but for me, this birthday is about starting over on a positive leaf, and living my life out of my comfort zone. I have not heard of Miracle Mornings, but I might just have to get it!
