And Just Like That... | A Personal Blog Post to my 30 Year Old Self

February 28, 2017

 

And just like that, I turned 30... It was about a month ago when my husband asked me how old he was going to be (we are 2 days apart) that I realized that 30 was fast approaching. Denial set in.

I couldn't believe it.

Where had the time gone?

Where were my 20s?

Where did everything go? 

It was then at that moment that I realized I had lived. I had lived my 20s. I lived the good times, the bad times, the hard times, and the sad times. Some of those times are just a blur and others seem like just yesterday. I experienced a marriage (well wedding, really), a divorce, living on my own, too poor to pay for electricity and gas but too stubborn to ask for help. I experienced finding true love, a second marriage, numerous homes, 2 of which I bought, marrying my very best friend and giving birth to one of my greatest accomplishments. I fed my passion for photography and learned a lot about life. 

I learned to accept the person I am.

I learned that not everyone has your best intentions in mind.

I learned that when people have nothing better to do they start rumors.

I learned about true friendship.

I learned that the most important person you can rely on is God.

And then yourself.

I learned to follow my instincts.

I learned to listen.

I learned to stand up for myself.

I learned to love.

I learned to LIVE.

This is just a small milestone in the big picture, but a milestone none the less. 

I am so grateful for all the people in my life who have stood by me, supported me, and even those who didn't.

Here's to another 3 decades!
