thirty.



Tomorrow I say goodbye to my 20’s.

It’s both bittersweet and exciting. I think entering my 30’s makes me feel as though I am officially a grown up, never mind the fact that I am married with 2 kids. That doesn’t make you a grown up, 30 does :).

 30's. That's like real adulthood. Gross.

If I had to pick one word to describe my 20’s it would be growth. I have just learned so much about myself the past 10 years and have really grown into myself. I feel comfortable with having an opinion and stating it, about realizing that I don’t need a million friends, just a few good ones, and about my worth and value as a woman, as a partner, and a person.  I really matured the past 10 years.

My 20’s saw me through so much; I suffered the worst heartbreak of my life and found the greatest love of my life. I made friends, I lost friends, I had wild nights with my girls and quiet nights at home. I drank way too much Tequila and laughed till my sides ached, I went on road trips, and I travelled. Sometimes life knocked me on my ass, but I got back up and kept pushing. I stopped thinking about how I was “supposed” to do things, and started doing them in the ways that made sense for me.

I experienced the pain of a miscarriage and the joy of pregnancy. I created two absolutely beautiful and perfect human beings. My life is forever changed because of the gift of my son and daughter. If nothing else I know I did 2 things right. Well…3 things, because I picked a pretty awesome husband to be a dad ;).

I have no qualms about leaving my 20's behind. I enjoyed them - I did some things right, I screwed up plenty of others, and I had a lot of fun in the process. I look forward to my 30’s  because 30 is a privilege. Really, it is. {Admit it, it's a miracle you're still here after all the things you thought were a good idea in your 20's...}
