Almost 30

I started this blog because I was a little panicked at turning 25. In 3 months, I’ll be turning 26. For me, everything past 21 has been almost 30. What’s the big deal? I’m honestly not even sure. It’s not like I look my age. I still get carded when going to rated R movies (which my husband finds hilarious). Last year I got carded at the Christiana Mall, in Delaware. They have a rule where you have to be at least 16 or with an adult to be there on the weekends.  Don’t quote me on that, but I’m pretty darn close if not exact about that. The funny thing about the mall situation was that I was with my younger sister and her friend–neither got carded. I’m 9 years older than my sister.

Recently I thought about turning 30. Instead of freaking out, I pulled out some paper. I wrote down some goals I want to accomplish before I hit the big 3-0. While I was at it, I almost made 1-month, 3-month and 6-month goals. Many of the things on my smaller lists lead up to 30 list, of course.

As long as I am steadily accomplishing things, I should welcome each year as a new opportunity to continue my growth. It has taken me a long time to come to that realization. I can’t take all the credit for it though. My husband is an awesome talker but an even better listener. He moonlights as my personal sage.

    I think I need to do this too. Oddly I’ve realized most of the stuff I’ve accomplished I haven’t actually planned for. Just goes to show how much God loves me. It would be nice to prepare for something, see it through and be successful with it tho. I’m looking forward to some good things in the next year or so.
