Take It All In Stride

7 Oct

My 20’s are officially over today. I remember when I was about 21 and I thought 30 sounded old. It seemed like it was so far off in the future and that I had plenty of time until I passed that milestone. I feel like I blinked my eyes and the past 10 years passed in a flash.

It seems for the past 6 months someone would remind me daily that I was going to be 30 any day now. It’s almost like 29 wasn’t acknowledged. I feel like I am handling it ok. When I really sit and think about the time that has passed and all that has happened it gives me a little anxiety. But, for the most part I have decided what good is it gonna do to get upset about it? I can either embrace it or roll over and die and the second one doesn’t sound appealing at all. My mom reminded me today that I would always tell my grandmother on her birthday that age is just a number. And that is the truth. I am a little wiser this year than last (only slightly though), I have created more memories and met goals I had set for myself.

I hope these next 10 years slow down a bit for me but I have a feeling they only go by faster from here on. I think it is always important to set goals for yourself and have something to aspire to. I don’t want to become stagnant in life and just settle for where I am. My goal for this year is simply to live better and be better. I want to think about those around me more, be more considerate in the things I say and make everyday have a purpose. I am sure those seem like cliches but it is truly what I want for my life.

Looking forward to what the year holds.
