30 by 30

With my birthday sneaking up on me, I decided to use 2012 and my big 30 to set some serious goals.

Obviously my biggest goal is to walk.
To kick this wheelchair to the curb.

So this is my list of 30 by 30. Some are long term goals that will take lots of practice and work, others are moments that I would have never thought to think twice about before, maybe even taken for granted.

All are milestones and accomplishments, 30 small steps closer to my ultimate goal.  

1.  Be able to dress 100% by myself
2.  Have my own vehicle
3.  Drive
4.  Donate my hair to a cause
5. Sing in church
6. Cook an entire meal myself
7. Be able to style my hair
8. Buy new shoes that I can put on myself
9. Sleep in a regular bed
10. Be able to roll
11. Go on a weekend getaway
12. Change my kids diaper
13. Take my kids to get a happy meal or ice cream.
14. Make cookies with my kids
15. Be able to do my own laundry
16. Be able to stand
17. Find a way to do service for someone
18. Wear "normal" clothes (not sweats everyday)
19. Lose at least 20 pounds
20. Lift weights on a regular basis
21. Do a transfer to my wheelchair from my bed without a transfer board
22. Be able to transfer into a car
23. Go see a movie
24. Be able to transfer to a toilet
25. Be able to stay alone for 24 hours
26. To get from laying to sitting
27. To crawl
28. To do a depression lift (a real one, with my butt clearing the ground)
29. Be able to lean forward and sit back up without using my arms
30. To get rid of my leg straps

30 goals.  

I may not achieve them all, 
but I'll achieve all I can.
