BRING IT ON 30's!

BRING IT ON 30's!

HOW AM I ALREADY 30 YEARS OLD?!

AND WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING ANYWAYS?

So, I recently turned 30 and things are surprisingly feeling AWESOME!

30 years old
  • I graduated college.
  • I have a cute loft in a great neighborhood and can afford to live here by myself (kinda).
  • I figured out how NOT to get parking tickets in Portland, OR.
  • I have a steady job (although I'm extremely overpaid).
  • I have a solid group of friends who are supportive, loving, and consistent.
  • HELL YES!!

However, I used to think life would be so much different at the age of 30... I was supposed to:

  • Be married.
  • Have kids.
  • Be a teacher or be famous.

WHAT HAPPENED!?!

Honestly, a shit ton happend. 

  • My little sister is an alcoholic and I swam with her in the midst of it for a while... aka - I tried to fix her... I tried to help her... If you know anything about the Al-Anon Club then you feel me. If you don't, go check it out as I'm sure many people in your life are familiar if you aren't. 
    • AKA - I got way lost in the mix of this - no fault to my sister (she's a third of my being).
  • My mama lost an incredibly close friend, her daughter emerged as an alcoholic, and she was re-nesting all at the same time... she had a period of healing which made me feel abandoned (totally blind to the fact she NEEDED to heal and find herself again which she absolutely did thank God). 
  • I was in an abusive relationship.
  • I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my hips and a hip labral tear on top of that.
  • I graduated college and was no longer able to identify as a college athlete... I had a feeling of not being good at anything.
  • Two of my best friends were abducted (they escaped by fighting for their lives thank God).

I pulled through though and overcame hardship and adversity. I am no happy, healthy, balanced, and ready to run with life!! 

BRING IT ON 30's!!
