monday was my birthday. i had a good birthday week leading up to it and a fun evening with a few friends from work for dinner and drinks.
i turned 28 this birthday i know it should scare me that i am starting to inch ever closer to 30 but i am much more relaxed about my age and reaching 30. i look forward to going into my thirties and my last few years of my twenties.
now that i am finally in my late 20’s i feel more comfortable in my skin and my body. i finally feel like everything has all come together for me where i finally fit my age, body and mind set. i feel like i am able to listen to my body a lot more than before. it lets me know when i need something specific, whether it is something i am craving to eat, if i need to rest, or to run, whether or not i am doing something wrong or if i am doing things right. i feel more confident in myself, as an adult and as a women. i am more sure of what i want and don’t want.
at 28 i know more of where i am heading and where i am wanting to head down in life. i am more okay now that my way of life and what i want out of it is different from most people. i understand better that it is more than okay for many to take a different path in life and not follow the same line that everyone else does. for so long i felt as if i was behind everyone else and had to be on this race with them, until i realized where they were wanting to head and where i was wanting to head to. different directions.
i enjoy the detours, plus going a little nw isn’t so bad.
i am looking forward to this new year for myself, i look forward to being 28 and whatever it has to offer me. 27 was an okay year for me. it started out a bit rough, i was still moving on from the whole 26 thing. 27 got better towards the half part, i found my footing, made decisions and started learning to balance. now at 28 i know it will be as good as a year as i let it be. i know i will keep working on what i finished out with 27, learning to balance, to relax let go and have fun. who knows what this year will bring but you know i am all for surprises.
