As I grow…

15 03 2008

I may have just turned 30, but I’m still growing up.

I am learning that it’s OK to have my own opinions and that I do not have to agree with everyone.

I am learning that it’s OK to make decisions all on my own and that if it’s the wrong decision, I can change it later.

I am learning that I like to dress me up for me. What started as a way to “look presentable” has grown into my own ritual decorating that makes me feel good to be me.

I am learning that it’s OK to wait.

And that it’s OK to start things right away.

And that sometimes if things don’t get finished, that’s OK, too.

I am learning to love the parts of me I used to think were unlovable.

I am learning to say, “I love you” to people outside these four walls.

I am learning to put 100% of my effort into things I do.

I am learning to put others before me.

I am learning to draw lines at what I can and cannot do.

I am learning it’s OK to tell people how I feel, good or bad.

When I was a kid I saw adults as this finished product – someone who had learned all of Life’s Lessons. I see now that it never ends, does it? I can’t wait to grow old and keep learning, learning… learning.

Wonderful post! And you are so right, It feels like I learn so much more about myself since I’ve turned 30. I apolgize so much less and I feel like the tide is turning. Like you I can’t wait to find out where I’ll be in 10, 20, 30 years (and on hopefully)
