29!!! Weird. I’m 29 today. At some point during my youth, everyone stopped aging in my eyes. Myself included. I look at my younger cousins now and I’m always baffled about how much they’ve changed and grown up, because I still think of them being 8 or 9 years-old. So when I think of myself being 29 – It’s just confusing. hahah
I always catch myself reflecting around my birthday and around the New Year…. Reflecting on my previous year, and reflecting on how far I’ve come over the years. I’m definitely not where I ultimately want to be, but I wouldn’t trade this journey for the world.
I think back about things I’ve done and I catch myself shaking my head saying “oh, boy… what was I thinking?!” Then I remind myself of one of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes – “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” Then I always throw in Mahatma Gandhi’s “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” And I move on with my life, and my mission(s). 😉
I can’t wait to share more with you all about some new dreams and goals I have.. but I want to get things planned out a bit more before I make that announcement. Stay tuned for that – and cheers to you all celebrating Cinco de Mayo tonight! Be safe and enjoy your Mexican food & margaritas! 😛
