I had to laugh when at When Pens Collide, I said to Yetti of Yetti Says that I was looking forward to my thirties and she replied, “Why do people keep saying that?” It was hilarious. Like who is really looking forward to their thirties right? Well, maybe I am a freak of nature but I am. Don’t get me wrong, being young and bright and all that good stuff has been amazing! I’ve learned a lot, been through some ish and have come out a pretty awesome woman if I do say so myself. But like every good book, there is just as much of a great story left to be told in the next chapter of this life.
This year I turned 29. Ahhhh! So many people freak out about getting older and I haven’t quite gotten there yet. Yes there are plenty of things that I thought I would have accomplished or done by now, but honestly, those things don’t define me. I’m having the time of my life.
I really feel like I’m getting better with age. And not just in the way that people say it to make themselves feel better but really. I find myself often in rebuttal of “old jokes” just shaking my head and yelling “like fine wine, baby.” But truly, this is the best and most comfortable I have felt with myself in a long time – outside of a couple pounds that I could lose. But I wanted to take some time and share with you just a few of my revelations so far in this last year until 30.
