On the eve of something new

In two days I turn 30. Thirty. Thirt-eeee.

I keep rolling the word around on my tongue. And it gets a little stuck.

I thought my feelings were neither here nor there about 3-0.

But I do feel something.  

It feels like I'm on the eve of something new.

Like on a humid and hot day, when you step outside and feel a cool breeze sweep past you. 30 feels like that. Refreshing. Like a change is coming.

I think {hope} 30 will be lighter, brighter and full of new opportunities.

I think {hope} 30 will see a better {bolder, balanced, blissful} me come to the surface.

So I bid an early goodbye to my twenties and I say thank you {for all the lessons, for the births of my girls, for showing me I am supported, for teaching me what balanced and healthy is, for introducing me to meditation and reconnecting me with that place inside where my spirit resides}

And with a gentle smile, I say a big hello and offer a wondrous welcome to 30. Life feels good.
