26 Goals For My 26th Year

As of Sunday, I am officially 26 and unlike many people who begin the journey into the late twenties, I have no anxiety about it. I think that’s the case for several reason, the first being that I’ve already accomplished a lot in my first 25 years. Secondly, because I have a lot more to accomplish in the next 25 years and I don’t have time to waste on the extra stress.


“Do not count the candles but notice the light they give. Do not count the years; look at the life you live”.

In the spirit of my birthday, I have created a list of 26 things I would like to accomplish in the next year to ensure that I live it to the fullest.

Here starts many accomplishments to make the best year yet!

  1. Complete my first half marathon
  2. Travel somewhere new, whether that is in Nova Scotia or across the globe, as long as I have never been there before
  3. Love my body at my best and my worst
  4. Spend more time with people
  5. Spend less time with technology
  6. Invest in Balance to Bliss
  7. Eat whole foods, most of the time
  8. Network more
  9. Read a book a month
  10. Pay off all my student debt
  11. Try skiing for the first time
  12. Strengthen relationships with family and friends
  13. Meditate weekly and manage stress efficiently
  14. Hike along the Cabot Trail
  15. Save more – 10% of every paycheck to be saved
