November 17th marks 1 month left until I turn 30!! How do I feel about this? not sure. Most of my friends are in their 30’s so I think this helps soften the blow a bit:) I know the time has to come, you can’t stay in your 20’s forever but I really did love my 20’s! I did not take them for granted and tried to appreciate each year. I wish I could have a couple years left in it but I am looking forward to the next 10 years. I know that I will try to make the most of each
year month. Something that I have learned in the last couple of years is that life isn’t as perfect as it seems when you are younger. My life is not perfect but I’m REALLY happy right now and satisfied with where my life is at this point! I want to continue to surround myself with the people that make me happy and I hope I make them happy too – Relationships matter! I think my 30’s will bring change but as long as I embrace it and not fight it I will be good!
I wish I had made a list when I turned 20 of what I wanted to accomplish by 30, unfortunately I didn’t. So here is my list, I will need to add on as the years go by but it’s a start!
