Well, it's still Friday in California, so I am excusing this near miss on my self-imposed deadline. Justifying and rationalizing to myself...what's that about? I went out on the town with a friend tonight and stayed out way past my bedtime. I feel like I have hit that age where I turn into a pumpkin at midnight. When did that happen?
I don't like the gray hairs that have appeared over the last year or two, but for the most part my thirties have delivered many blessings. For example, I am not nearly as insecure about my appearance in comparison to others as I was in my twenties. Other ladies can be beautiful and stunning and all that good jazz and I can just be me and be okay with me. I really never thought that would happen even though I heard other women declare it down to me in my twenties. "Just wait. It gets so much better." I am a believer now and will tell those young ladies the same thing. They won't believe me until they experience it themselves - just like how I have to learn every lesson life has to offer.
I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know that I am exactly where I am supposed to be in life today. That doesn't mean I don't have dreams and aspirations. I just know it's the journey in each day that makes for a full life and I am grateful to know that today.
