23 Goals for 23 Years


Every year on my birthday, I like to reflect on all the things I accomplished the year before. In school, in life, in love — anything and everything is fair game for the “I Did It!” list. But I also like to think about all that I have left to do, all that’s still ahead. So I’ve made a list of 23 goals, 23 things I’d like to attempt in the next year (or two, or ten) to make life a little bit better. Maybe you’ll feel a little inspired, too!
