As long as I can remember, I was always looking forward to and anticipating getting older. Whether it was "I can't wait for..." - driver's license, high school, spring break, graduation, turning 18 (I'm an adult now I can do what I want when I want), college, a career, turning 21 (good bye fake ID's! yes I was a rebel child), getting married, having kids, etc. - there was always something I was looking forward to for the future. Now, here I am wishing the opposite - oh what I would do to rewind. If only I could press pause. If only time would slooooow down.
A silly fun fact about my younger years.... one of my life goals (if you can call it that) was to be married and be done having kids by time I was 30. Why oh why was that even a goal let alone a deadline of mine?! As if turning 30 means it's all down hill from here?! Ha! All joking aside, it looks like I've succeeded. 😉 😅
Turning 30 really doesn't bother me at all. I certainly enjoyed
Just for fun, I've listed 30 things I'm wishing for on my big birthday! Although I'm certain I will recieve zero of these things (because... kitchen remodel broke the bank) but it's still fun to "wish"! I'd be 100% satisfied if the only thing I got on my list was the very last thing... 😏 🍦 🎉
