No. 31

June 11, 2012

in Personal

It was my birthday last week and while I usually don’t care much about my birthday, in recent years it’s always been a positive milestone in my life. While I typically cringe at growing older, my birthday acts as a great launching pad for good things to come. I started working my current job last year on my birthday. Four years ago I met my current boss for the first time on my birthday. Two years ago I planned my very first birthday party as an adult–and people came!

Overall, my thirties have been pretty great so far. I’m still working on being an actual adult, which means I still gotta figure out my health, my home and my relationships. Maybe that will be my focus for year 31. I feel as though I am really transitioning into that next phase of life. Gone are those years of insecurity and doubt from my quarterlife crisis. I may not know all the answers like I wish I did, but I’m okay with not knowing everything. And somehow someway I have managed to be confident about a lot of things I was never really confident about before. Growing up. It works.

I’m really looking forward to this year, I’m looking forward to what God will do in my life. He’s been pretty amazing, I swear He always tops Himself year after year.

And now I leave you with this bit of awesomeness:

Wow! This is just the post I needed! Thank you!
I’ve been struggling with the same feeling the last couple of days, as I’m turning 30 in 3 weeks. Scary stuff.

Also, from the outside looking in, you look awesome :)

Happy (belated) Birthday! Sounds like you’re on the right track. I’d like to have the same sentiments when I cross the line :)

I love your attitude. Grasping your 30′s with a breath of fresh air. We all don’t have answers. Most people older than us still looking for growth. I’m not at all afraid of my 30′s. I use to be. But I think it’s a great change. You’ll enjoy. There could be adventures lurking around the corner waiting on you.
