Happy Friday Fellow Verb’s!
I have finally come to terms that I reached the peak of my 20’s, and am on a climb to new heights in my 30’s. It has been an interesting month of birthday fun (posts coming soon), but to me the most exciting part of this month has been coming to terms with who I am and what I am doing with the beautiful gift of life.
Let’s just say, it feels great to be 30!
In my early 20’s, like everyone else, I had this idea of what my life would be like at 30 — married with kids, working a job I love in broadcast, living in the house of my dreams, and traveling the world. Even though, I’m still waiting for some of those things to happen, I am in awe at the amazing things that have happened with me just from being open and optimistic.
My 30th Epiphany Moment
You have to let go of what you “think” is right, to gain what you know is yours.
It came like sap oozing out the side of a tree — extra slow, picking up things that lay in its path.
It started with me asking God questions about specific friendships, personal growth, and about why things weren’t meeting the expectations that I had in my early 20’s.
What I realized is that the plan for my life hasn’t changed, and the journey I was on was way more beautiful than anything I could expect. Even in the moments of pain, I gained priceless nuggets of wisdom. Sometimes I get so caught up in the end result that I forget that the moments along the journey are what makes a story worth telling.
Somewhere along that journey is where I realized that holding on to people or things I thought were supposed to be a part of my life was the one thing I had to let go of in this new chapter. We have all heard the saying, “some things are in your life for a season”. I had to be honest about what those seasons looked like for me, even if others may or may not understand my reasoning.
Beyond all things, I have slowly come to trust my intuition. This has been a powerful moment for me because I am walking boldly in to what I know is mine, and leaving the opinions of others to themselves.
I feel this innate responsibility to lay the foundation of my legacy, not defined by what I thought success looked like or by what people may assume that my success of, but by what I know in my heart is right for my journey to creating a legacy.
The new chapter has begun!
