We are HERE , 30 !
But first , lets reflect ...
It took for me to say "Goodbye" to Learn the Importance of saying "Hello". As teenagers we all long for the day when we turn 21! Telling the world we're grown , going to clubs and buying alcohol. To Us , that's what being and 'adult" was. At the age of 20 I had given birth to my daughter 2 months shy of my 21st birthday. What it meant to be a 21 year old served a completely different meaning than what i initially thought but Ultimately change my life for the better.
As I look back on the trials and tribulations on what my "Twenties" consisted of, I am Proud to be 30 and Thriving.
Truth be told our 'Twenties' is for figuring it out. Using our childhood upbringing to guide us through a world of corruption and bliss while trying to determine which is which. While being so young but apparently grown enough to think we know it all , we actually have the audacity to think we are suppose to have it all together. College Degree, Dream House , Dream Car, Dream Career, Perfect Relationship ... yea I was about 25 when I woke up from that "Dream" .
But Hey , lets give "The Twenties" some credit right ?
I've birthed an amazing , talented , and witty little girl, I found the Love of my life and which came with a bonus new love , my bonus son,and I became an entrepreneur . Throughout all these new journeys , I subsequently found peaces of me. It became easier for me to notice the things that actually make me happy and things that makes me smile ! I also became more aware of the importance of patience, trust and confidence. My upbringing and past experiences made these three things so hard to achieve and i can honestly say i haven't mastered those qualities . But hey , we get better everyday right ? I'm still a work in progress.
Today , Pandemic and all , I am Full. I have everything I need to be successful in every way .My twenties provided me with the wisdom I needed to exceed and execute this next decade. To live a life where you are clear and certain about what it is you actually want and to watch it all unfold right before your eyes is the purest form of bliss.
Every Since I turned 30 ,
My smile has been bigger, I laugh a lot more and harder . I feel so aware and sexy !! Ill be the first to tell you , after i had my daughter I lost confidence in my sex appeal. I was dealing with body insecurities, just like the rest of you, for a very long time. Sometimes it affected my self confidence and my relationship. I've never felt as sexy as I do now and its not just the physical. Sex and sexuality is just as much a mental and emotional journey as it is physical. When your mindset changes about yourself, the body follows. Of course my body is constantly changing . Now, I've come to the realization that a constant workout is needed, which I'm still trying to incorporate into my hectic schedule. Not necessarily for weight lost but to kept my limbs from aching. Bending over to pick things up, sex positions and daily movements have completely changed. So yea, my knees, neck and back may hurt like hell , I still love it here !
Although I have more lessons to come , I say Thank you to the ones I've learned . I've said Good Bye to all my doubts and Hello to all my new adventures, connections , and opportunities. I spent a decade building a strong foundation , sort of like a blueprint for my life and now this next decade is dedicated to execution.
To my young queens right now in their "twenties" . Calm down sis ! Trust yourself and the process. Everything is going according to the divine plan, the universe is just waiting for you to ask!
LIFT YOUR SPIRIT !!
