The Time Has Come

The time has come for me to come to terms with something. I’m turning 30 this year. Not just this year, this month. August 1st marked the beginning of my last 30 days in my 20’s. August 31st is the big 3-0. I’ve been a little anxious about venturing into a new decade. I want to do something memorable. So I’ve decided to do a Cammi’s 30 things before I’m 30 countdown. I want to do things that are out of my comfort zone. Things that make me a better person. Something fun that I will remember. Things I’ve never thought about doing before. Or just things that I’ve wanted to do and now I have an excuse to hurry and jam it into the next 30 days. In no particular order, here is the start to my list.

  1. Walk/Run from the Blaser cabin to the Payette River bridge at night. (Apple Challenge) No flashlight.
  2. Read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover beginning on August 1st and ending sometime before 11:59pm on August 30th.
  3. Call someone and genuinely thank them for something. (Past or Present)
  4. Hike Timp again even though I said I never would
  5. Go down the chute in the Payette River.
  6. Cut my hair
  7. Sew something.
  8. Meditate for 30 minutes.
  9. Volunteer at the food bank
  10. Visit an old folks home with the family
  11. Go to a new temple (not Provo or Mt Timp) with a name I bring
  12. Do a King Dancer pose on the top of a mountain

I need more ideas! So send me yours. If I use it, I’ll give you a shout out and something cool. I haven’t thought of what yet, but trust me on it being cool. Help me ring in 30 and follow my journey here. I’ll be posting about each experience as I complete them. I have already completed 4 (5 by the end of today) so stay tuned for posts, pictures and video of what I’ve been up to!

    I have always wanted to do this simple thing, but have never been able to. When you make eye contact with a stranger or someone you don’t know so well, keep eye contact (without saying anything) and hold it until the other person looks away from being uncomfortable. I am too afraid of doing this lol.

    One more idea, do a session of bikram yoga (90 min)or hot yoga. It’s not as easy as it looks or sounds, but its challenging and something you will not forget! :-)
