I’m sitting here on my couch on Thursday night as I’m about to hit publish on this post… I’m in my PJs in front of my Christmas tree, I’m sipping on a cup of tea and I have a furry little dog snoring right beside me. I feel very cozy!
The clock will strike midnight in a few hours and I will officially say goodbye to my 20s. What a bittersweet feeling
I have experienced a lot my life in these last 3 decades, both good and bad. And while I might not be not quiteeee where I thought I’d be as I enter my 30s, I appreciate everything all of my crazy life experiences have taught me thus far.
When I reflect on my twenties, I have a few regrets but I can also think of some things I’m really proud of. I wish I had not tried to be so grown up in my early twenties. It would have been nice to travel more and have more fun. I didn’t realize at the time that I have the whole rest of my life to be responsible! On the other hand, I am really proud of myself for getting my education out of the way and settling on a career that makes me happy. It was a long road with lots of hard work but it was definitely worth it.
And then there are a few life lessons that I’ve found to be tried and true:
If it’s important, you’ll find a way. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse.
It is 100% worth it to follow your arrow. Go after the things that will make you feel fulfilled.
Experiences > material things
Invest in your friendships. You get what you give. Finding good friends and cherishing them can bring so much to life.
There is peace in letting go of things that are not meant to be
I have no idea where my 30s will take me, but I plan to continue to follow my dreams and spend time with people who bring love and happiness to my life. A few beautiful sunset bike rides wouldn’t be so bad either
Oh, and I’m also so happy I started this blog and have connected with so many awesome people.
Hope you guys have a good Friday!
