Today is my 30th birthday, and with such a significant milestone comes a lot of reflection. The only thing about turning 30 that has been difficult for me is realizing how quickly I’ve arrived at this number. I don’t feel “old,” and I get asked on a daily basis if I’m even old enough to do my job. I’ve realized that age and time are only heartbeats measured in minutes and days.
For the past 10 years I’ve accomplished a lot. I have always been on a mission, and have always been eager to check an accomplishment off my list. Always convinced that with accomplishing MORE, owning MORE, etc… I would eventually be satisfied.
Since losing Trish 6 months ago, I have been in complete survival mode; simply running on autopilot. There have been weeks where I don’t talk to anyone, and some days I can hardly pick myself up off the couch. I have spent so many years, weeks, days, and minutes obsessing about getting my life “together,” and making something of myself, that I never realized I was searching for peace and happiness in ways that would never get me there.
So today is a perfect day to forget about the never-ending game of “obtaining and accomplishing,” and start thinking about where I go from here. I’m not 100% sure exactly where that is, but I have a general direction in mind. “Edit your life frequently and ruthlessly. It’s your masterpiece after all.” #goals #inspiration #simpleliving #livesimply #intentionalliving #positivity #minimalism #quotes #lifegoals #turning30 #livewithless #travelmore #befree #loveyourself
