Can you believe the end of August is today? Tomorrow begins a big month- September. Five days after my baby girl turns 1, I’ll turn 29, officially entering my last year in my 20’s.
30 used to sound so old to me, so grown up. In many senses, I guess it sounded that way to me because now at almost 29, I am pretty much grown up. I have a husband, a daughter, a dog, a house- all very adult things.
In many ways, though, I don’t feel grown up at all. I still get silly after a glass of wine. I still turn cartwheels in the yard when I’m outside with Hailey. I still have big dreams for adventures I want to have in the future.
In other ways, though, I feel very grown up. At this point in my life I am more comfortable with who I am than I’ve ever been before. There are truths I believe in that I’m not afraid to state. I know who I am and I know what I believe.
I believe in…
Promoting what you love instead of bashing what you hate.
Asking for what you want, even if the answer may be no.
Live and let live.
Turning strangers into friends.
Enjoying and savoring food, drinks and life.
The power of positive thinking.
It’s a short list, but it’s a solid list of ideals that I strive for. At times I fall short. That’s why I try to remind myself of these beliefs often and live my life accordingly.
What do you believe in?
