today i hit a big milestone birthday, and it's suprisingly a little refreshing this morning. i remember when i was a lowly 19 year old, flying on airplanes all over the united states playing volleyball and having some horrible experiences with "elderly" people who wouldn't take my opinion as anything because i was so "young". that use to irritate me so badly and i couldn't wait until i was OLD enough :) to have my opinion taken as valid. i think i have hit the "valid" stage! and with my life a little different than 11 years ago when i hit 19, i am no longer flying everywhere, but instead RUNNING everywhere after my perfect little boys with my first sweet girl in my belly and trying to keep things at home running smoothly for my most wonderful husband...and i couldn't think of a more perfect life for myself! each day i feel as if i am doing a work greater than i can even imagine, but as one who hopes to never sit idle, have just a few things i want to do in my next 30 years to change me and hopefully leave a better mark on the world!
*become more patient with others AND myself
*look for more tangible ways to serve others around me
*be more spontaneous!
*be more open about my opinions!!(now that they count!)haha.
*study more about our world and how and why it works
*let my closest always know how much i love them by what i DO and SAY!
*do some sort of "CRAZY" race..
*publish some of my books!..and not just wish..
*not worry about what others think, but remember what is important
*make MORE great friends!
*see the world!
*see the world!
*find ways to improve others around the world..humanitarian service/teaching/etc..
