Last week I was blessed to celebrate my 29th birthday. As an only child who’s ALL about birthdays and usually celebrates mine for the entire month, this year was a little different. I started off not being excited at all, not making any plans and just feeling rather blah about the whole thing.
Simply because it finally set in that I’m one year closer to leaving my 20s behind and stepping into what used to be the dreaded 30s. The older you get, you start taking stock of your life and asking yourself the tough questions. Are you really where you want to be? What have you done to get there? What’s the plan for the future? So on and so forth.
Then it dawned on me. I’ve always been my own worst critic. Even when I’m on the right track, I find a way to over-analyze certain situations. So I decided to get off the ‘woe is me’ wagon, pull myself together and celebrate the beauty that is my life. Not only did I treat myself but I had some help from my beau who does a really good job of making a girl feel special.
He took me out, surprised me with a few gifts, took me out again and we hung out with the besties!
All in all, I had a great time. I’m looking forward to what’s to come and already planning my ‘Dirty 30’ celebration!
