RIP to my 20’s
I am officially thirty as of today and oh my is that so weird to say! I remember being 15 and thinking 30 was when you were old and you must’ve had your life all figured out. WRONG. I do still feel like oh man this is crazy that I am now close to 40 than I am to 20 and that I will never be close to 20 ever again.
Jenna Rink said it best…
Remember being in middle school and watching Thirteen Going On Thirty thinking “wow, that’s what 30 is like? I can’t wait.” Well, here I am and although I may not be that version of thirty and flirty and thriving…I am my own version. I have a man who loves me beyond belief and helps bring me closer and closer to Jesus, I have three babies who are my entire life, and I am navigating life as a business owner. I totally don’t have anything together and I’m a complete hot mess but, that’s okay! I’m thriving.
This is the beginning of the best years of my life or so they say.
Everyone who is 30 and over keeps telling me these are about to be the best years of my life but, I am not sure how that is going to happen. To be honest, I’m heavier than I have ever been, I feel like my entire body is falling apart all the time and I literally go to bed at 9PM. Staying up past 9 is a total party for me these days.
But, I am also working out to get into better shape which also means I won’t feel like my entire body is falling apart all the time.
I guess in hindsight, this is the beginning of the best years.
My babies are older and are relying on me less and less which makes me so sad but I am also so excited for all the things that are to come. That means that we are going to start having busy weekends full of sports and more school related activities along with playdates at friend’s houses. Before I know it, I’ll blink and they will be graduating college and I’ll be wishing back these years that I feel like are the end of my life. I’m getting ahead of myself here but, I think now that I am done writing this I have finally come to realize that…
