And it begins . . . the count down to my 30th birthday. Tonight I had dinner with some friends in Mission Viejo that I use to work with. I was expecting a reunion dinner but instead it turned into a reunion/birthday dinner for me. Wow. Cake and presents were in front of me and it hits me that I will be turning 30 next week. The waitress snaps a picture of me blowing out my candles while my friends are loudly singing happy birthday to me in the background. In the meantime I phase out for a second and I am thinking what the heck! Usually I'll cringe at turning 30, but lately its been not a big deal. Ready or not here it comes.
Life didn't turn out exactly what I pictured it to be. But so what! I'll just say that sometimes with a great loss comes progression. I had expectations, but now I know better. No expectations No disappointments. So just living life one moment at a time. Life has become more than I have ever imagined it to be.
This weekend is going to be crazy celebrating my birthday and I am excited to embrace a new chapter in my life. Plans? Still working out the kinks and will finalize everything for this weekend. There is one thing that I wanted to do before I turned 30. Its something that I have always wanted to do and even though no one wants to do it with me . . . i'll do it anyway. I'll post pics later.
Time is flying by really fast and I am enjoying my visit with all of my friends and family. Still a couple of more people that I want to see before I Ieave next week for Colorado to visit my best friend, Mel. Then its off to Saipan.
A friend asks me, " would you have done anything different in your 20's?" I reply with a "YES" More about that later.
