Today, I turned 30 and what a day it was. Nothing went quite as planned, but it truly showed me that I always have my family and that is all that matters. I couldn’t be more blessed to have the love of my girls.
I still can’t believe I am 30. I can’t believe I have closed another chapter in my life, but I am so excited to start this next one. Here is a little thing I posted on my personal Facebook page last night and it sums up how I feel about heading into my 30s.
Wow, this is my last night in my 20s. Where has the time gone? How am I turning 30 tomorrow, most days I still feel like the insecure 18 year old (with 4 daughters, of course :)) just trying to figure out who I am and what my purpose is in this world. I can tell you I am happier and more confident then I have ever been. Life is unfolding just the way it is supposed to be. [I have more compassion and love then ever before and it is AMAZING!! I love seeing people for who they are and living a judgment free life. My favorite quote states that everyone is battling something and I always try to remember that. Loving people and the world is the best thing we can do.]
What a decade this has been. It all began a few months after turning 20 with the meeting of the love of my life. Who would have known. A year later we got engaged and 9 months after that we were married. Two years later Sophia was born and two years after that Isabella came into our lives. Then we received the surprise of our lives and two years later McKayla and McKenzie made our family complete. Our family of 6 is my favorite family of all.
These last 10 years have been my most challenging, most rewarding, most wonderful years of my life. I have grown and learned so much during this decade and I am grateful for the women I am today. I cannot wait to see what my 30s have in store for me. One thing I know for sure, my childbearing years ended in my 20s and that is truly bittersweet. My 20s were definitely something special. I am sad to see them go, but excited to experience all the wonderful things there is to come.
