This past weekend was my 29th birthday. To celebrate I did a bunch of mini celebrations with family and friends over the course of three days. It was lots of fun, even if I did get major sunburn the day before my birthday on the 4th — that wasn’t fun.
I’m thankful that I’m past my early twenties, and I’m even more thankful that I’m past my awkward stage — which lasted way too long. I’m thankful for the friendships I have, life experiences that have shaped me, and I’m thankful for my co-workers who have become like family to me. I was kinda dreading turning twenty-nine, as it means that I’m that much closer to thirty, and my life looks nothing like I imagined it would when I was nineteen years old. I’m learning to become okay with that, and just living the life that God has given me.
