I’ve been 25 for 6 days. I don’t know what I was expecting, but thankfully, I feel just the same.
The older you get, the wiser you are, right?
As I explained on Tuesday, I like to welcome each of my birthdays with a list of goals that I hope to accomplish for the upcoming year.
Generally I start out with a theme.
- My 23rd year was focused on growing and expanding.
- My 24th year was about getting to know and love myself.
I’ve spent the last 2 years growing up, asking myself who I am, what I want to do, where I want to be, and spending an unbelievable amount of time on learning how to love myself. So, it was easy for me to decide what my 25th year would be focused on…
Taking risks, jumping into new opportunities and staying true to me and the important things in life.
I hope this theme will make sense once I get into my goals. So, without further adieu, my goals for my 25th year are:
Adopt the belief “Leanne can do”. Believe in myself and my purpose, the rest will follow.
If something feels right, jump on it and know that the decision I’ve made is a good one.
Continue to work on my blog.
I had no idea what blogging was about when I first began. I’ve been blown away at the community that surrounds me, the support from people I’ve never “physically” met, and the love that exudes from each and every one of my readers. I love y’all!
Start meditating again to reduce stress and stay grounded.
This is going to be tough, but I have a year to nail it.
Escape for a couple of days.

Continue with my goal to run a marathon.
Training for a marathon has kept me focused on my personal health when times get busy and will continue to be a huge part of my life.
Listen to my body, take breaks when I need them and give myself the food I need.
This includes looking in to joining a CSA, ordering my grains, lentils, and seeds/nuts by wholesale, and increasing my overall intake of whole foods.
Go on a tropical vacation and brush up on my diving skills!
For all you mantra meditators out there: have you ever dove and repeated your mantra? Best experience ever!
Last, but certainly not least, is to nurture my relationship with Kevin and set aside a date night every week!
Any business owner out there can probably relate to this. Blog + full time job + private practice doesn’t leave much time for personal moments. In the end, the ones we love is the only thing we have!
So there we have it.
- believe in myself
- trust my intuition
- take myself on a vacation
- continue with marathon training
- eat right, listen to my body
- nurture my relationship
Anyone else feel like 25 is going to ROCK?
