It’s hard to believe our tradition of writing lists for our birthdays with the corresponding age we’re turning started 7 years ago when Mad sent Teal a card from her exchange in Norway. It was for her 18th birthday with a list of 18 reasons why we were (and still are) soul sisters.
Needless to say, not much has changed in our friendship and the way we celebrate our birthdays. In honour of Teal’s 25th birthday, we’ve compiled a list of 25 things to achieve or get in the habit of achieving in our 20s. Some we have checked off, some are on-going, and some we’re still working on! Have a read to see if they inspire you, no matter if you’re 25, 45, or 85!
25. “Whatever you are, be a good one”- your 20s are a time to explore and try new things. The world is at our fingertips and we have so many opportunities to achieve whatever we want to. Regardless of what it is, make sure you do it to the absolute best of your ability.
Making a list like this is just one way to make sure time doesn’t tick by without consideration of things you really want to do/accomplish. Everybody’s list is different and everybody can interpret it in their very own way. Birthdays, like any landmark or holiday are a great time to reflect on years past and look forward to what you want out of the year ahead. Teal’s 25th birthday marks a pretty awesome 24, but it only marks the start of another amazing year ahead.
