I’ve realized I need to write shorter posts….so here is my roundup of thoughts regarding turning 30:
I’m more comfortable in my skin than I ever have been. I’ve accepted the fact that I’m pale as pale can be and have embraced the paleness that is my Irish self…..so I wear skirts, and shorts, and lots’o’sunscreen. Take that girl on the bus in 7th grade who made fun of my pale legs!
I. Finally. Love. My. Hair. I know how to fix it- straight, curly, up, down.
I have my own sense of style and don’t feel the need for Hollywood to define my style.
I know longer feel guilty when people admire an outfit because I put thought and effort in to styling myself. I silently accept the positive attention and remind myself that there is nothing wrong with making myself feel good about what I see in the mirror. I do it for me and no one else. This has been difficult for my introvert self.
I’m more self aware than I ever have been. I don’t mind admitting that I’m cranky or tired or flat out pissed about something. I can apologize and mean it. I don’t always need to be right. The only one I need to prove anything to is myself (and occasionally my husband)!
I will eventually lose the baby weight…will probably never lose the stretch marks or little baby pouch. I will rock a vintage inspired one piece or tankini instead. I only accepted this after having Little R.
I’m happy in my marriage and feel sorry for women who aren’t. I don’t feel sorry for women who aren’t willing to work at it or who think a relationship should just magically be perfect.
I understand that men are not perfect, are not mind readers, and aren’t all that complicated. Women on the other hand, really put these guys through the ringer.
I absolutely love being a mom….but it is not the only person I am.
I’m able to be thankful and proud and humble at the same time.
I was much more stressed and freaked out about turning 25 (that’s like a whole quarter of a century you know!)
I know I still have things to work on- like sticking to a budget and paying off debt, not overextending and over-committing myself, taking time to take care of me.
I need to be better at accepting compliments.
I need to be less of a perfectionist.
I’m one of the most impatient people on the planet (between me and CG- I think we’ve got impatience covered).
I still have goals…and lots of them.
But if I didn’t I’d be awfully bored!
The journey is what creates Happyness!
Under 500 words- not so bad huh?
Shared at some of these parties!
