Though I don’t have the time nor the money to live my entire bucket list during my Year of Being 50, I do hope and plan to knock off a few of the more manageable items. A long road trip with Rory (for the total eclipse!), driving all the way to Canada (family road trip!), parasailing (in Santa Barbara!), and publishing my next book (finally!) will be a few of the more exciting items.

In addition, I plan to spend more time on my personal interests, rather than prioritizing what I “should” do. (Though, some of these are “shoulds” as well.) This means I plan to:

  • delve into my family history things
  • spend quality time with some childhood books and plenty of unread books that glare at me from my bookcases
  • bake some fun bakes
  • take some writing classes
  • get in better shape
  • sew some new and interesting outfits
  • declutter the house
  • spend time with family
  • spend time in nature

And do anything else that strikes my fancy. I’m taking a page out of the book of a family member who turned 50 a few years ago. She filled her Year of Being 50 with all kinds of new learning experiences and adventures, and I hope to do the same.

By the time I turn 51, I hope to have a full year of things to look back on and feel satisfied I made the most of my time.
