Two weeks ago, I turned thirty and my birthday in all honesty was amazing. Which says a lot given my mental temperament before then. I was in crisis. To be frank. So consumed was I concerning where my life was going, it was quite easy to forget just how far I’d already come. And also, that even though life wasn’t all that I wanted, somehow it was still exactly all that I need. 

The thing is at some point, we all feel a little mediocre. We look at others and wish we were where they are. We look at ourselves and think that we aren’t where we used to be. And that perhaps wherever that was, it was actually better than where we are now. We overcomplicate life with so many plans, and rules. You look forward so much, you forget what’s now. 

And just how to be grateful for a moment that spent, can never be returned. 

I turned thirty and it’s a little bit crazy. 

Because for all that I was worried about my future, I almost missed my present.

xo, Ginny

    https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.jsThis was so comforting and timely! I turned 26 in January and had to learn that we may not be where we want to be but we’ve come so far. I’ve been praying to enjoy every moment and every season of my life and had been striving to do this every day. This also makes me think of a sermon by Pastor Steven Furtick from Elevation Church which might be called, “God of My Gaps” how it seems that we’ve never made it because for each step forward there is another goal to reach. I’m grateful to have read this insightFULL post. Have a great weekend!

      Thank you so much. It is deeply gratifying that you’ve not only read my piece but that you were able to connect with it as well. I remember the first time I began freaking out about my age, I must’ve just turned 22.๐Ÿ˜Š The thing is though as you’ve stated if we get too ahead of ourselves, we don’t get to fully enjoy the moments now. There’s always going to be another goal. Plans don’t remain the way we make them. And often what we learn in those moments if we’re fortunate enough to not skip through them, is that our future still sorts itself out even when we don’t agonise over every detail of getting there. Cheers to you. Enjoy your weekend. And every moment. ๐Ÿ’œ
