February 2nd is my birthday!!! I would love to say that I am doing something significant but these days I just want to stay home, watch cartoons, and go to bed early. I know, total party animal right? Maybe it's just me but my 30's so far seem to be more about conserving energy rather than expending it, but I have also learned other pretty cool things in my 30's.
My life has been an incredible journey, and yet I feel like my 30's is where the real work begins. As a child I wanted to create and invent. As a teenager I just wanted to hide and disappear. In my 20's I chased approval and acceptance, and occasionally found myself in sparks of genius and bravery. At 30 I felt like I needed to get the house, the job, the man, the money, right away or be a failure. At 31 I was on track to have the house, the job, the man, the money, and months later lost it all again. At 32 I realize that I have been holding me back at almost an embarrassing level. It's damn near scary to see how powerful I can be when I stop with the crap and just try, dare, experiment, be brave, feel the fear and do it anyway. I'm excited for what I'll learn this year, and the fabulousness that comes with being 32.
