into my thirties. They are approaching faster now and just days away. I, for some reason, consider thirties “them”. It’s an odd feeling saying goodbye to just a number and putting them solidly into your past. A whole decade, a whole chapter of years that spread out wildly and carried me coast to coast. I can now use the term, “Oh yeah, I did that in my twenties” with a wave of the hand. I’m very proud of my twenties, I don’t think I could have jammed anymore life experience and adventure into them and when I really ask myself . . . am I really ready to be a 30 year old woman, part of me winces because it’s hard to believe it and part of me is excited because I finally feel my age.
Twenties were a window to my soul that helped me see who I am, where I came from and who I wanted to be. I’m heading into this new chapter with assurance that I will always be learning about myself and continue to work hard at being a better person everyday. For the next two weeks, I have visitors coming to Maine that I am very excited about. The days will be fun filled with familiar faces that are extremely dear to me. So, forgive me if I’m a bit quiet on the blog . . . I will be surrounded by lots of love and exploring this beautiful city.
A quote that rang so true for me was recently featured on one of my favorite blogs, Ophelia’s Webb . . .
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” – Marilyn Monroe
See you when I’m 30 . . . . xoxo!
