If I asked you to sum up your 20s in one word – what word would you pick?

For me, the 20s = Navigation. Transitions would be another word.

There’s just so many things going on – trying to find yourself, your own identity, how that matches up to the rest of the world. Peer pressure, societal influences… Romance, relationships, figuring out what you want in a partner, breakups… Death, weddings… Career, what’s an ideal career. Finances – savings, should you start investing… Travels.

SO. MANY. THINGS. TO. FIGURE. OUT.

It’s probably also the best time in your life – health-wise and looks-wise. All the late nights, parties and copious amounts of alcohol and junk food probably won’t have any effect on your waistline or your looks – yet!

I turned 29 recently. It will be the last year of my 20s before I move on to the next decade and a whole new phase of life.

I get pretty nostalgic about things like that. And as I look back on the 10 years gone by, there were all sorts of memories – happy ones but lots of regrets as well.

So I’ve compiled a bucket list to celebrate the last year of my 20s! This list is filled with 29 things that I think all 20 somethings should experience at least once – before they hit 30.

Are you a beginner blogger?

Or have you always been thinking of setting up a website, but you don’t know what to do or where to start?
 
I was in your shoes not too long ago.
 
When I started my blogging journey, I scoured the net for recommendations on blogging tools and resources people have used in their journeys
For months, I signed up for A TON of ebooks and courses. Some were free and some weren’t. So I burnt a HUGE hole in my pocket. As it turns out with these things, courses/ebooks that provide alot of value are few and far between. There were many that were a complete waste of money to be honest. 
I still can’t believe how some bloggers can price their products at $100 or more and yet offer buyers little to no value. Anyway, that was a huge learning curve and I now have a very clear picture of what is good and what isn’t.
And today I’m sharing all that with you. My honest experiences, recommended tools and resources that beginner bloggers need. 
 
I’m doing this for you because I know how confusing and tricky it is for beginner bloggers. I’ve been there. And it’s hard having to figure out whether you need something or whether a certain course/ebook is really worth the money.
 
In the first part of this series, I introduce the top blogging tools and resources you’d need to get your blogging journey going.
 
Let’s get started!

So you’ve set your goals and your new year resolutions. You’ve lined up 10 items that will definitely be checked off at the end of the month. You’ve got this.

 
4 weeks roll by and you’ve only ticked one item off. *Shrugs* Well, that’s ok I’ll just roll them over to the next month.
 
Another 4 weeks roll by and now you’ve 2 items ticked off. At least it’s one better than last month!

Are you in the habit of reviewing your goals?

If so, how often do you do it?

Reviewing your goals is a very critical step to take in achieving them. It’s so easy to get bogged down by the little things, constantly reacting to what life throws at us instead of being proactive. It’s so easy to let life pass us by.

The days bleed into months and then years.

Many of us find that though time moves forward, our goals never do. We make the same resolutions year after year, the same tasks and projects appear on our to-do lists each week.

How do we solve this? How do we ensure that we make progress on our goals?

What are your goals for next year? Where would you like to be at this time next year? What would you like to have accomplished in the next three years?

How do you feel when you are asked questions like that? Annoyed? Excited?

When I was younger I would feel incredibly annoyed whenever anyone asked me those questions – and they were rather frequent! Like how the heck would I know what I was doing in 5 years time?! Let alone next year? And why was the need to set goals so important when I can do whatever, whenever I want?

But now that I’m older, I finally recognise the importance of goals – having gone through a couple of years in my early 20s just existing from one day to the next, not being very ambitious or motivated.

Having been planning my life goals for a few years already, I’ve come to really appreciate how useful the process is.
