As I approach my birthday this week, I have a lot on my mind about my life, my journey so far and where I go from here. I will only be 29 so what I am experiencing wouldn’t really be a midlife crisis in the literal sense but hear me out. I got married at 19 so I will have spent my entire 20’s married. I had my daughter at 21 so I’ve been a mother for the better part of my 20’s as well. Then I went through a life changing near death medical trauma at 25. So even though I’m not even 30 yet I feel as if I’ve lived a lot so far. I’ve had a complicated an intense few years and am feeling reflective about life.
So I’m devoting a year. This will be a year to research and to discover. To get me past the demons that are still in my way and to find out what I want from this life, to discover what makes me truly happy and makes me the woman I want to be.
I have changed and grown a lot in my twenties and I have a year to get ready for my thirties and for the rest of my life. I’m reading a lot of inspiring books and challenging myself to learn and grow from what I am learning. As I so personally understand we get one life and I was blessed with a second chance when I woke up that morning in February of 2010 and I need to commit fully to embracing it and making the most of it.
I’m still working on my plan and outline for what I want to accomplish this year and how I plan to go about it but I hope you will stick by me and encourage and support me when I need it. I have a story to tell and things I’ve been through to share and I hope that this blog and my social media will be a safe place for me to do that.
