It’s been a while and I miss ya’ll!
We just got back from a family vacation to visit some dear friends in Hawaii for my birthday and I also just got back from the most amazing time at Choose Joy Event (an adoption and infertility conference) I spoke at. I have two very fun posts on each of those things coming, but first let’s chat about getting older and wiser (ok maybe not the wiser part) first.
Yep, this year I turned 33 a fun age to be. I have had this blog for almost 8 years and I feel like I have learned so much from each of you and from myself. This year I am embracing my age! Grabbing all that I have learned and running! I used to think that 35 was SO OLD (haha), but honestly I have never felt younger and more alive. I feel so FREE in who I am, in who God has created me to be and what the future holds. I used to analyze everything and make these huge plans for the future (I still dream for sure). But now days, I soak in each moment I am alive in each day. I still have my little check lists, but I don’t place so much pressure on myself as much as I used to.
I don’t know how much time I have here on this earth and I sure don’t want to waist any of it with my OCD tendencies or worrying. I still think about fun things for the future and plan a little, but I am not wrestling with things the way I used to. I am standing with my arms open to whatever God has in store for my life. I have seen God take care and provide for me/us more than I/we could have ever imagined! I know I couldn’t have understood this 10 years ago and that’s why I think age really can make life a lot more fun and free!
So 33, I welcome you with open arms and even am excited about growing up and growing older!
Question: What age did you used to think or still think is old??
