You’ve been so good to me and you gave me a ton of change which I’ve learned to love and embrace. A lot has happened in 10 years, thank you. I look forward to the next 10 years and reflecting back on the changes in my life.
I got married to the love of my life.
I had a baby!
Found the furry love of my life, Edith.
Traveled Europe; Czech Republic, Germany, and Iceland.
2 cross-country road trips; one with a 2-year old.
Moved to two new states; Wisconsin, Illinois, and back to Wisconsin.
Made new friends and cherished the old.
Discovered what my own spirituality is like.
I’ve grown into someone I love.
Have grown to appreciate the small gifts life gives us.
My dream of living on a farm came true, just need those chickens and goats!
Discovered my passions of nature, gardening, and flowers.
I cherish the relationships I have in life.
I give all I’ve got to the passions that light my internal fire.
I’ve grown more patient than I ever knew possible.
Having an almost 3-year old has taught me so much; to slow down, appreciate the small things, and how to relearn and rethink how I want to live my life.
You hit your career goals and it sucked, and that’s ok!
Gave up dying your hair and are embracing your greys.
Started to write and share my grandfather’s story.
Being a mom is just one tiny part of who I am, not my whole being.
Took a professional coaching certification program, where I met some of the most amazing women in my life and learned SO much about myself, and have helped others learn more about themselves too.
I’m learned how to not give others the power of judgment, their opinions don’t matter. It’s my life and I choose how I live it.
Discovered my boundaries and limits, and adhere to them.
Kindness matters, a smile matters, a simple “hi!” matters, hugs matter, all these little things matter, and all these little things grow to have a bigger effect on building more kindness in the world.
My focus for my 40s is sharing kindness and being a light for others when days are dark. To embrace and feel my emotions, and learn from what God gives me.
Thank you 30s for teaching me so much and I look forward to what my 40s bring.
