Today I enter a new decade of life and embrace some new digits. Why hello 30.
Over the weekend, we gathered at the parental units residence for some festivities with my favorites. Oh and my sister took photo's on our brother's broken motorcycle.
This morning when I got to work, waiting in the office was a box of flowers from the husband. Birthday's are and have always been fun to celebrate growing, but really it is another day like all the rest. As I say goodbye to my 20's and hello to the 30's, today is more day to look at where I've been and where I am going in life.
I think I would say my 20's were the greatest, most intense period of learning, humility, self-discovery, and growth. I learned a freaking ton about myself, not to mention relationships in general. I had to mature in many ways and allow myself to be teachable by those wiser than me...sometimes not always done with the best attitude.
Life is a story, you're always turning new pages. Stories are full of all kinds of twists, turns, and surprises. Sometimes it can feel like a mystery to solved or cheesy romance novel. But at the end of life, its not so much about what was accomplished, but on how you allowed to story of your life to change and transform you into a better version of yourself. And how the story of your life served other people and made a difference in the world.
I recently finished reading this book. The words below of the author really struck me:
The story of life continues to unfold and develop. And I'm excited to see what this next decade of life holds for me...
