I turn 38-years-old today.
Since I spent the first 18 years (mostly) following my parents and schools’ expectations, I consider today the 20th anniversary of figuring out life on my own. 😊
Often, we take on the decisions of society or our families without even realizing it – without questioning it for ourselves.
So, what does it really mean to live a good life? Tell me your thoughts in the comments.
Here’s what I’m learning:
• The most important day for me was the day I realized my self-worth
• Loving yourself is not sweet and cuddly; it’s courageous and hard
• Life’s not better married or single, with or without kids, this way or that; it’s how you think about your life that matters
• Forgiving others who’ve made mistakes in the past helps me forgive myself when I make mistakes in the present
• Deciding to stop drinking alcohol will likely be one of the best decisions of my life
• We are programmed to find our calling. If you pay attention to it, you will
The truth is, you are deciding in each moment where your life is taking you. You’re more powerful than you think.
I can’t wait for the next 20 years. I’m just getting started.
