So, I’m 30.
And I’m fine with that.
Honestly, I do feel a huge sense of ‘next chapter’ in my life. I’m not sure that it was very gradual either. I’m feeling like I’ve drawn a line in my mind; “Here are the thoughts, actions, desires, and goals of what used to be, and on this side is what I am and what I want to become.”
You can see it in my 30 x 30 list too. Reading the original post, I knew that I wasn’t going to hit them all, but I didn’t think I’d be that far off. I’m alright with that. It’s that sense of satisfaction of just not having the same motivation and goals as before. Of course, some I just realized through the process at how lofty they were. For instance, 1 of them was to spend time with all my nieces and nephews – that should be an entry for each of them! Heck, just updating the list to include all the new additions became a goal I missed!
Some, I overachieved on, like taking another job back in September. if you’re a stickler for numbers, I’d give myself 19 points out of 30.
The fact is, and just how the original post indicated, these are life long goals. Yeah, I’d actually still like to be able to dunk. I’d still like to run races. I’d still like to spend time with my mother and nieces and nephews. The great news is, I still have time to do them.
So here I am. Ready to face another phase of life, lists, and goals. Would I change anything I’ve done in the past? Nope. Will I be the same person 30 years from now? Probably not. I can tell you that I’ll enjoy coloring outside of the lines for the rest of my life though.322 views
