Have you ever purchased a piece for the sole reason that you liked the name of it? Or am I the only one who, at times, can be that impulsive? Midaxi, it has a slight ring to it doesn’t it?! Okay, fine, I will admit that I like saying it because it makes me sound just a bit more hip. …and while I am turning 30 this weekend I will hang on to all the hip that I can get;). Although I am pretty sure using the word hip counteracts any cool factor points I may have previously gained.
My husband laughs at me for freaking out about entering my 30’s. But let me be honest for a minute: It’s not getting older that freaks me out, I have never been someone who cries at their first wrinkle (that’s what I have moisturizers and makeup for), age has never bothered me much. I mean come on there is no avoiding it, we all get older… duh! It’s saying good-bye to my twenties that is giving me anxiety. I feel like our 20’s are where we find so much of ourselves and so much of our lives begin. I feel as though I am having to say a sudden good-bye to an amazing friend who has been by my side through the thick and the thin. Between school, children, work, meeting “the one” for some, you develop so much of your character, you consume yourself with building a stable foundation for the rest of your life, and it’s scary to say good bye to that. It’s as if I am entering this whole new era where I have to write a new book and don’t know if I can make it better than the last. At times I am not sure of exactly how to make it better because how could anything be more eventful than my 20’s. Maybe our thirties are meant to be the time where we are stable enough to start building upwards from that foundation without fear, to take actions that we were scared of and live on what we learned in our twenties but now with better direction. Anyways, I digress, so here’s to jumping in with both feet. Here is to doing my best to make my 30’s not just a new chapter but an entirely new book in my life.
