30 things in 30 years

Hey Friends! Can I still say “Happy New Year”? I’m going to anyways since I have not had the opportunity to wish one anyways. With the holidays and the new year I have been a little quiet. Just with transition and life happening. I wasn’t really in to the holidays this year and find them fading as the years increase but I made the best of it. With the passing of this holiday I also had a birthday….the big 3-0!!

Yes I’m now in the 30 club. It’s funny because when your just doing the day to day thing and growing up 30 sounds so far away. I guess its not cause its here. A lot of thoughts came flooding my mind as I turned another year. Most of them around “am I where I want to be at this age?” I mean will I ever get to be where I am truly happy and comfortable and accepting of all the circumstances in my life? I don’t have answer for that one, but if you do let me know with a response!

So in traditional manner as many bloggers do its only appropriate that I share 30 things with you that I have learned in these 30 years. Here it goes.

  1. You’ve changed cause you’ve grown and you’re going to keep growing so don’t stop and don’t be afraid of it.
  2. Carbs are not your friend after 20…the metabolism thing is not a myth!
