40 by 40 List

I'm no longer a twenty-something, but I think I'm taking 30 in stride. What seemed scary a few years ago isn't so bad now that I'm in it.

I posted a few weeks ago with a re-cap of my 30 by 30 list. I did ok with it, but there were a few misses. Now, it's time for a fresh start and a new list.

I've included the items from 30 by 30 that didn't get done, because they're still things I want to accomplish. And I've layered in other items on my life-long bucket list, new items I'd like to try and some great suggestions from friends. Another suggestion I really liked was to categorize my goals so I don't end up with 25 travelling to-dos and nothing that involves giving back. So here it is: my official 40 by 40 list.
