24 Trips Around the Sun + 1 Important Lesson Learned
It’s official: I’ve hit my mid-twenties! And guess what? I still don’t have my life together. At least not the way I thought “together” was supposed to look when I was 14. Ahh, the days of being young and assuming that, by now, I’d have SOME idea of what I was supposed to do.
But I guess that’s the point, isn’t it? The older you get, the more you realize that you’re already doing what you’re supposed to do, whether it’s running a company or keeping a toddler or two from running up the walls.
Or maybe you know what you’re supposed to do, but you haven’t had the courage to take the leap. I know that feeling all too well, too.
It hit home for me tonight while I was doing yoga. I’ve been working my way through Yoga with Adriene’s latest 30 day program, Dedicate, and every day, she makes some small comment that shifts my perspective. See, I tend to freak out a little/a lot when my birthday comes around. I love spending the time with my family, but it’s another reminder that time is passing and I’m getting older. It always sends me into a nosedive, desperately seeking some sort of stability and steadiness that I can count on.
Guess what, guys? Life doesn’t always work that way, and it’s okay, because wherever you are is exactly where you’re supposed to be. Lean into it. Breathe. Put one hand on your heart, one hand on your belly, and close your eyes. Tap into that inner smile; it’s there, even in the middle of the freak-outs and meltdowns and mess-ups.
And I’m holding onto that. This year - this birthday - felt different. There’s been a lot of change over the last few years - and a lot of questions - but I feel like everything will be very clear, very soon.
Big news coming soon. Keep an eye out. ;)
