Happy 29th to Me

Today is my birthday! I made it to 29 years of age! Sometimes I think, I can't believe I am 29, when I was 15 I thought at that age one was old or established. Today's journal in my classroom is: "What do you think your life will be like 10 years from now." I love hearing all of my students' dreams and goals; it always brings me back to 19 and thinking where I would be at this 29th year! I have to say though, that even since last year's birthday post  (click here to read) that I have come a very long way. In the last year I have:

  • completed and failed several fertility treatments
  • grown closer to my husband
  • lost some weight
  • started running
  • changed from regular foods to more organic
  • bought a keurig
  • moved from a small town to a city
  • sold a ton of stuff that I never use
  • celebrated birthdays of the many babies God has placed in my life
  • had my God children, M____ and D ____ spend the night and successfully made it through mass with both of them
  • Became a new Godmother to baby K____
  • spent mother's day as a God Mother with baby K___
  • celebrated births of C____ , L _____, and G _____
  • started my Master's Degree in School Counseling
  • made lots of new desserts and appetizers
  • took family photos
  • Worked summer school :( grrr
  • bought my second NEW item for our home in six years of marriage
  • learned to feel comfortable in the life I have been blessed with
  • signed up for The Color Run on Nov. 11th
  • started seeing a new Catholic based fertility specialist with NaPro Technology
  • gained new friendships and strengthened my current ones
  • successfully completed many fasts with my husband
  • Shopped, shopped, and shopped some more
  • decorated and re-decorated
  • bought ANOTHER kitchen table
  • went to Alamo Draft house
  • Prayed, prayed, and prayed some more
  • and last but not least...Celebrated. 

From 28-29,  I celebrated my wonderful and blessed life, my God, my church, my husband, my family, my friends, my job and co-workers, my students, my doggies, and all of the babies God has placed in my path until I am blessed with one of my own.  I celebrated my failures and my success. I celebrated the rough patches and the smooth rides. I celebrated when I didn't feel like it, and some times too much!

From 29-30 my goals are simple: Live Life. I am not living in the future, the past, or in my dreams. I am simply living, as a 29 year old success and I finally feel like I am right where I need to be.
