Holy Birthday Batman
In just three days I turn 39. Yep. 3-9. I made it through 38 without going crazy. Just barely. Ha!
This birthday I am so much more settled. Some sort of magic happens as you get older. I feel like I really evaluated and took stock of my life this year. I let go of some things that were keeping me from really going forward. Mostly what people thought about me. I actually took responsibility for my life and threw away my victim card. Trust me, it was well used.
There comes a time when you have to stop blaming all of your unhappiness on circumstances and other people and all of the hard things that have happened to you. There comes a time when you just have to give up and give it all to God. And allow Him to do for you what you can’t do for yourself.
This birthday does feel holy. Sacred. Because I did some really hard work to get here. I went to a lot of therapy. I let God change my thinking and my perspective. And I actually started showing up for my life. I gave up on trying to fix everything I hated about myself and just let God have it all.
This year I am so very grateful for all of my many, many blessings. I look forward to this last year of my thirties. I know that there will be even more opportunities for growth and still even more treasures.
