Yesterday I turned 29.
Woah. I’ve really come to the last year of my 20s?
This is going to sound super cliche, but also super true: WHERE DID THE TIME GO?
I’ve been feeling kind of emotional in the couple days surrounding my birthday. I am not one to become overly upset or scared about becoming older (and hopefully wiser). But I have a sneaking suspicion that somewhere inside this emotional-ness is coming from growing chronologically.
It’s funny, you see…I thought that I would have carved out more accomplishments in these 29 years. There are always expectations of grandeur when you’re in your teens and early 20s. Don’t get me wrong, I am proud of myself and where I am at this exact moment. I know that manifesting your dream comes at its own perfect time. But…I think as I get older I see the “what ifs” of certain paths I could have taken. How things would be better in some ways, and not as great in others.
I am happy that I am on this path.
Now…29 seems to have some significance.
The end (beginning?) of an era…a culmination…graduation…evolution.
Presently, I’m balancing really “try hard” to attain my goals with trying to “not try hard.” Do you know what I mean? It’s kind of like taking baby steps (and a few giant leaps) while meditating, staying in the present. Knowing that every bit of work (paid or unpaid, hard or not hard) IS my dream. I am living my dream right now.
Let’s just say I know 29 is going to be a great year of alchemy. Taking those 20-something lessons and transforming them into wonderful things and manifestations of my dreams. Yes. I like the sound of that.
And you know what? I had a great kickoff into this magical year with the help from my great family.
We started the day with a fabulous brunch in Hudson, Wisconsin at San Pedro Cafe.
I was gifted an awesome book I cannot wait to dive into!
This road trip lover got the ultimate ‘life on the road’ essential…XM radio! Woohoo!
I got my very own juicer so I can make things as pretty as this…
And the night of course ended with something sweet. . .
Everything about March 24 was a joy. And no matter what age you may be turning on your next birthday, there is always time to do what you want, change who you are, explore your dreams. Start with me…today!
