It’s my birthday month! In 11 days I will officially be in my 30th year of life.
I’ve thought a lot about what I want this year to bring me. More travels, more friendship, perhaps even love. I think my wish though when I blow out those candles will be for this year to bring me clarity on my life’s purpose. I’ve spent my life wandering, sometimes on purpose, sometimes not, but now I wish for my mind to settle and to focus on achieving that internal happiness that comes from the confidence that you are living your best life. I am not yet there, but I’m amassing the lego pieces to get there.
I don’t feel old as I look towards 30. I still sleep with my baby pillow. I still like pop-tarts. Ocassionally I still re-read James and the Giant Peach and enjoy searching for Waldo.
Most of all, I still love the feeling of possibility that comes from making wishes on birthday candles.
