I said before how my son has inspired me to go after dreams. We’ll here’s the latest “inspired by baby”. Last week, I told you that I would be starting a list of 40 things I want to do before I turn 40. I didn’t know how hard it would be to actually compile that list. Most things I think of seem bucket list worthy but not so much something I’d get to before I’m 40. Getting the nerve to sing and dance on stage for example, is total bucket list. It’s certainly not happening before I turn 40. When I say sing and dance, I’m thinking Beyonce type performance. Maybe when I’m pushing 60 and I don’t care what anyone thinks I’ll have the nerve to make that happen. Maybe by then people would be all, “how cute, look at granny trying to get down.” Maybe. I think a good compromise is to take a dance class before I turn 40. I’ve taken dance classes before but, none in recent memory. I really want to take another one. People wouldn’t believe it but,  I think I am a dancer at heart. When I listen to music, I am choreographing the video and/or performance in my head. Every. Single. Step. If I had the opportunity to actually choreograph a routine, that would be awesome! So, I think taking a dance class would be a step in the right direction. I don’t want to take some modern dance class either. Been there, done that. I want to take a hip-hop dance class or something that would really make me move. Sounds fun and intimidating. Isn’t that what this list is all about anyway? It’s settled, the first thing on the 40 before 40 list is to take a dance class. I’m excited just writing it. More to come! What’s on your list?

  1. I love the idea behind your list. I’ll be 40 in three years, and it’s coming faster than I want it to. I always think of the big things, losing weight, getting healthy, etc., but now I really love your idea about setting 40 goals. I hope you can achieve all of them. I’m going to go read the rest, and then I’m going to see what else you come up with. I’ll let you know when you’ve inspired me to add something to my own list.
    Thanks.
    p.s. Thanks for the comment on my blog. It was very thoughtful.

    • maybe we can inspire each other on the 40 list. i’m stuck right now and need more things to add. why in the world did i chose 40!? maybe I should do 10 before 40. 🙂

      p.s. you’re welcome

  2. Mimi. I ran a half marathon, something I always wanted to do and it happened before my 40th. Dancing like Beyonce in that run the world video would be a workout not a dance routine(LOL).
