25 New Things Before I Turn 25!!

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

I feel like a model in this picture!!!

The beginning of 2011 has really inspired me to take a more positive and open attitude towards life.  I've always been a pretty positive person, but I'm definitely guilty of avoiding change and new experiences. I feel like I use my shyness as a shield and let it inhibit me in a negative manner.  Recently I've been saying 'yes' more than 'no' and that change has led to an amazing month so far. I'm also feeling inspired to make changes to my life in a positive way.  I've never been the kind of person who makes serious resolutions at New Years. I've always been more interested in focusing on accepting myself the way I am. But I've seen the idea of making a list of goals on several blogs recently, and I decided that I want to make my own list.  It's sort of like a Bucket List, but I'm shooting for my birthday in August as a due date. I'm really interested in this idea and would love to hear from you if you are doing something similar.

    xo, gina

  3. What a fun list! I hope you accomplish everything and more!!! :)

  4. Lovely list, good luck with achieving them all x

  5. I have been meaning to write one of these for a while. I should as I have a birthday soon. Great list.

  6. Your list is amazing. I know you can do it. Making soup is easy peezy, do not be worried about trying that one! And Wuthering Heights? It's soooo good. I described it like I was floating in the ocean going up and down with the waves, but never feared drowning. I love how so many things on your list are fun and don't deal with "bettering" your life...like cleaning or something. All of my lists are about how I'm going to improve myself. You've inspired me to make a list of the fun stuff I want to do in life. That's just as, if not more, important than the improving stuff, and more exciting!

  7. Oh yeah, you are also beautiful without your makeup!

  8. It's always amazing to have a bucket list! You can make yourself stick to it more by posting all the things you have crossed off your list here on this blog. Have fun with it!

    You are so gorgeous without makeup!

  9. This is a fantastic list, I love it! Riding the London Eye is something I want to do as well, and it's even worse that I haven't done it yet as I've been to London several times and walked past the Eye too...bad of me really...Good luck on your list! xxx

  10. This list rocks!!! I'm definitely going to write my own list! Our birthdays are both in August!! That's so cool!

  11. I love your #17! i would love to both host or attend someones tea party! so cute!
