What thirty-two feels like for me 💬...
In all honesty, I love being in my thirties. I love the security and confidence I feel being in a long term committed relationship and really coming into my own. I don't feel like I need to prove anything to anyone, accomplish more to fuel my ego or be validated as a successful or worthy person. I am financially stable, have a successful creative business and have checked off many "to-do" items in life like accomplishing degrees, buying a home, traveling often, etc.
In my 20's .. It was all about DOING. I cared a lot about what people thought and was desperately trying to find myself, my career, my happiness, and my worth. At 32, some times I feel like a completely different person but with the same huge heart, my values are much more simple, and as a super motivated person it feels a little strange! At 32, after all that I've been going through this past year or two... I just want to be healthy and love. I want to navigate my autoimmune disease and be able to get pregnant and have atleast one baby. I want to spend more time with my aging parents who are now in their mid 70's since I didn't get to when I was younger, and I want to just bask in the friendships and relationships I enjoy so freaking much!.
What does this shift in me now mean for me and the way I live my life? That's my current question... But regardless, I'm so thankful and happy to have this life and to share it with people I love, old and new. Along with the challenges, life is so much fun and filled with incredible heartfilled memories and I'm excited to make many more of them!.
My husband @tophbacon said something ridiculously wise to me the other day. "No one invented the right or wrong way to live." And it's so true! Really taking in how short life is and taking this opportunity to really think about how I truly want to live it.
Happy Birthday to my overthinking self Lol! 🎉.
