I celebrated my 29th birthday over the weekend (as documented on Instagram), and I couldn’t be more thrilled! There’s something about embracing the last year of my 20’s, that has me super excited. Strange, I know, but I can’t wait to be 30.
There’s something about being 29 that makes me feel so grown up. Like, I finally have my shit together or something. (Sorry, mom.) But the truth is, that I finally DO have my shit together. I love my career, I’m comfortable with who I am, with where I’ve been, and with where I’m going. I’m genuinely happy! With each year passing by, I can practically feel myself maturing (though I still have a ton of fun acting immature.)
I have a better sense of who I am, and what I want out of life. I have a self awareness of my mind, body, and soul, that I have never known. My 20’s have taught me a lot, both good and bad, but I wouldn’t change one single bit of my story for anything in the world.
Over the course of the next year, I’m going to be curating a “30 before 30” list. In other words, 30 lessons I learned before turning 30. I’m going to be seeking advice from both men and women that I respect in their 30’s, asking them for a word of advice, encouragement, or something they would tell their 29 year old self. If you have anything you’d like to share to add to that list, please comment below!
A special thanks goes out to Sole Society for spoiling me with a new pair of birthday heels. And guess what, they’re giving one of my lucky readers a $75 credit to shop their own pair of shoes. Enter in the rafflecopter below, and stay tuned because I have another exciting giveaway coming up this week.
By the way…I’m doing a little reader survey here. If you get a sec, I’d love to know your thoughts.
