This is probably me just bragging, but I’m going to list 30 awesome things that I’ve done, or am thankful for, or make me me. I am 30 now, but lots of people still call me a baby. And the other day some 7th graders were arguing about whether or not I look old enough to have children. I guess that’s a good thing? Continue reading “30+ Things on 30”
I’m always really bad about remembering when my parents anniversary is. But there are a couple things that remind me. 1) My birthday is, give or take, one year after they were married. And 2) the month of September, because I know that this is the month that it’s in. Is it at the beginning? Is it at the end? I don’t know. All I know is that this year is their THIRTIETH! 30 years. INSANE. And I’m not even sure if today is the day.

I watch Netflix: bored. At work: bored. Walking: bored. Church: bored. Homework: bored. Continue reading “I’m bored.”
I’m not ready (for positive change, or what I want).
When is anyone ever fully ready for healing, transformation, change? No one ever looks back and goes, “Oh yeah, I was totally ready for that big (or small) change in my life.” Even when you know it’s coming like moving, a new job, marriage, birth, or even death, you can read all the articles and self-help books, get advice from friends, but in the end, you don’t know how the change is going to effect your life. That’s okay! Continue reading “I’m not ready.”
Holding a grudge is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die… Read this, and take a deep breath after each statement. Continue reading “I will never forgive them/you/whoever.”
Nobody’s perfect… But you can feel pretty awesomely close to perfect! Take a deep breathe after each statement… Continue reading “Perfection: I should have done better.”
