My Next 30 Years
It's so hard to believe that the first 30 years of my life are coming to a close, as I turn the corner into the next decade, tomorrow. When I think about the previous 30 years, it feels like it was my time for learning. It was filled with almost two decades of schooling, and then the beginning of my career has been its own kind of education every day. I learned a lot about being a friend, a sister and a daughter. I learned a lot about the opposite sex, and I am trying to learn now to be a better wife every day. Most of all, I learned a lot about exactly who I am (for better or worse), and learned how to find my own true happiness.
In my next 30 years, I hope that I can take these past years of learning, and become a better person every day. I hope that my career will grow positively, taking the "job" that I love and turning it into a successful working adventure. I hope that my marriage only continues to get better every day. I am so lucky to be married to a man who is dedicated to me and our marriage. I hope that I can grow to become a better wife, and keep the love that we have growing and strong. I hope that I can be the most amazing aunt to all of my godsons and future nieces and nephews. And of course, I hope that I can be a better sister and daughter to the family that I love with all my heart.
Beyond that, I want to travel the world and see all of the beauty that this planet has to offer. I want to learn about different cultures and eat all kids of foods. I want to fill my passport with stamps, and my home with treasures from around the world. I look forward to moving into our new house, and learning how to make a home out of one place for years and years to come. I want to have a garden that blooms every year, and trees in our yard that grow tall and strong. I can only hope that we see the state of our economy and our country and our world get better, not worse. And I hope that I can contribute to that, personally.
It amazes me to think of what the world and my life might look like another 30 years from now. But I am so excited to take the journey there every day with the people that I love. I know it is going to be amazing!
So Happy Birthday to me! I can't wait to celebrate!!
