Reflection on My 20's

Sunday, April 1, 2018

Six months from now will be my last birthday month in my twenties.  I am six months away from the most adult birthday of them all - 30.

Growing up, and even on this very day, thirty feels like such a long far away thing that will never happen to me.  Thirty was this number looming over every single woman, something to dread and attempt to banish with every facial cream known to humankind.

You know what though? I'm sort of ready to turn thirty.

I didn't love my twenties.  I went out, I had some adventures, but certainly not enough.  I toed the line and sort of rebelled a little too hard against the idea of growing up.  I made a ton of immature mistakes. I also felt so incredibly lost -- and the not the kind of lost that leads to some sort of self-awakening, but truly without guide and alone.

By the time my twenty-ninth birthday rolled around, I was sort of bummed out.  I entered my twenties with a pretty rad party.  Every other birthday after sort of petered out and lost that lackluster excitement of starting my twenties.

As mentioned before, in November of 2017 I finally saddled up and purchased You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life.  It completely changed my thinking.  My achievements were no longer limited to what I did in my twenties and how I set myself up for future success.  I could build on this very moment and be proud instead of lamenting all of my time spent meandering.  I am exactly where I am meant to be.

To celebrate the six month countdown to the end of my twenties, I'll be posting every day this month.  Hope you enjoy the ride and would love to hear any insights you've gained as you traversed into your thirties!

And also, Happy Easter!
