TWENTY-THREE THINGS AT 23


So, your girl is 23. Yes - I am a big woman now. That's what I like to tell my brothers and partner but they laugh in my face that I'm still a little girl. I don't agree lol. I've always considered the age '23' to be a female's 'coming of age' age. Adulthood. Where you've made your teenage rookie mistakes in most aspects of life and now it's about discovering you, the true you, and figuring out the woman you are going be to the world.




This got me thinking, what 23 things do I want to achieve, do or perfect by the end of 23rd year on Earth? I'd like to share them with you. Enjoy the read and let me know what is on your list. Here we go...



23

EN FRANÇAIS


The sweet language of love. My favourite language. I find it so beautiful and I have always admired and envied those who could speak it. My aim - to perfect my reading and writing. If I'm lucky, speaking too.

22

BECOME A CHEF

Not for a career but they say food is way to man's heart.. but it's the way to mine too. I want to learn dishes out my comfort zone, experience new flavours and use my kitchen more. 

21 

PASSPORT READY

Currently coronavirus says a big fat NO but I say yes! Abroad and in the UK. Road trips all over the country. I need to explore home and all it has to offer. (Hopefully COVID-19 will bugger off before my next birthday!)


20

TATTOOS

I love them. I want more. I will do this. 

19

ACT OF FORGIVENESS

I've been through a lot. Things I probably deserved and some that no one should have to feel. It's left a lot of hate in my heart for some people... it has to go, for my own good.

18

MEDITATION

I want to practice the art of stillness and mindfulness. For discipline and peace of mind.

17

LOVE LANGUAGES

I have an amazing relationship. We can only thank God for this one. They say the 5 love languages are: quality time, physical touch, gift giving, acts of service, and words of affirmation.  My love language is quality time. I want to learn more about my boyfriend's to even better our bond.

16

MY FACE

I want to fall in love my natural face. Without the makeup, lashes, everything. It's work in progress.

15

CHARITY WORK

I want to dedicated some free time to assisting with a charity that I can personally relate to.

14

SUPPORTING GIRLS

Life's hard for us females. This is a man's world after all and we easily get taken advantaged of in the worst of ways. I want to hold a support group meeting for woman and girls who have such experiences in common.


13

BIG OLD BOOTY

Yes, sis. I want a nice round, beautiful butt and a flat flat stomach. There's only one way - working out. Pray for me.

12

VISIT MY PAST PAIN

I've come a long way. Doesn't always feel like it but I have. There's been some significant locations in my life that I haven't visited in a long time. I'd like to revisit them. I think I will video blog (vlog) it on YouTube and discuss then.

11

FRIENDS

Make more.

10

SOLO DOLO

This one is easy-ish. Do things I've done before but alone. Eg. go to the cinema, alone. Coffee shop and read, alone. Theatre, alone. Get it? Sound simple but when you have anxiety like me, it's a mission.

9

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY

Save. Self explanatory. 

8

JOG EXPERT

I want to learn how to jog long distances. Babe, don't you dare laugh.

7

YOUTUBE

Be consistent. Upload 25+videos this year.

6

HEALTH IS WEALTH

Improve my health. Go to the dentist, drink more water, get enough sleep. 

5

IT'S JUST CLOTHES

Experiment more with my style - hair, clothes, nails, makeup. It's never permanent. Don't be scared of colour!

4

FAMILY

Spend more time with them. Extended one especially.

3

GIVE UP McDONALDS

I'm not hopeful but it's on the list lol. Them nuggets are sooo good.

2

JOIN A CLUB

Book club? Gym class? Dance team? Hmm..

1

FAITH

Develop my relationship with the Lord. Go to church more, read my Bible. Just do better.


I have 11 months left. Let's see how this goes. Come back and check in with me. I'll keep a log of my progress. It'll take time. Self discipline and a lot of consistency.  The aim - a better me.
