32 – Big, milestone goals

Hey, Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. And I’m also the birthday girl that turns 35 today. Mama’s daily dose is…big milestone goals. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.

So first off, I have to say, It’s kind of crazy that I am 35 today, I feel like I’ve gotten to the age where it’s like, when people ask me how old I am, I have to kind of think about it a little bit. I actually missed my whole 31st year and thought I was 30 for about two years. But hey, and it’s kind of weird to think back that you know, what I used to think I would be when I was 35. 

I definitely didn’t think I’d be sitting here doing this podcast. But hey, you never know what’s going to come your way. And when we get to these more milestone, birthdays or milestones that happen in our lives, you know, like our kids are born, we get married, even New Year’s, we start to reevaluate things in our lives. And turning 35 really made me think about turning 40 and 40, I feel is like this big milestone, I feel like 40 is like adult, probably not, I probably won’t be any more adult at 40 than I am right now. But it’s just kind of what comes to mind. 

And thinking forward five years on your goals is probably about the most difficult, like three to five years is super hard. Because one year, it’s like a little more realistic. You can really think kind of one year into the future. And 10 years, it’s like you can really dream big, all this stuff can happen in 10 years. So, I can really create a bunch in 10 years and have these big, fantastic goals. But three to five years is kind of right in the middle there and hard to nail down. But what I’m working on today is really what I want by the time that I am 40, there are some big milestone things that I really want to do and some celebrations that I want to have and steps to get there. So what do you want for your next big milestone that’s coming up? Take some time today to think about that and where you want to go. Because if we don’t know where we want to go, we’re pretty much just drifting along and I feel like I’ve drifted long enough. I want to be the captain. I’m not fully in control. But I can certainly help navigate.

Thank you so much for listening in on my special day today. I really appreciate it. And while I don’t really need any gifts, I would really appreciate if you would share this podcast with some of your mom friends. Thank you so much and have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
