My Birthday is approaching....

Yesterday I birthday is this month. WHOA!!! This really creeped up on me.  Those who follow me know I am attempting to complete 30 things during my year of 30. I have started the process, but I realize I have a lot to do.  I don't want to be so focused on completing the list that I do not take out time to enjoy and just live life. Although I really want to complete the list I do not want it to consume me. If I finish, great, if I don't I will just continue to complete the things as life presents itself.  Feel me?

Well....approaching my 30th birthday has been interesting to say the least. A lot of things have been going on in my head. I don't think I am having a mid life crisis (I hope not....I so want to live longer than 60 years old), but I do think I am being very reflective of my past and how I am going to continue to live my present and my future. I have begun to think about the mistakes I have made and the successes that I have made. I have thought about how I will live the rest of my life and how I will influence others in my life....sometimes this scares me.

What is funny, yesterday I ran into a friend that I had reconnected with on facebook while on campus at work.  We stood in the HOT sun for almost an hour talking. It was funny because it was so unexpected and our conversation got me to thinking.  Made me realize that people do read my random thoughts and postings on facebook (I think some people have hidden me...don't post a lot, but I am an avid user of facebook). The conversation also made me think about some decisions I have made in my life and how I continue to make decisions....don't know if that is a good or a bad thing.  I appreciated the conversation, but I still wonder what the person thought about my responses to some of the questions and topics we discussed. I don't know if I want to ask the person what was going on in their mind, but it just makes me wonder.

I will be turning 30 this month. I have stopped "lying" about my age and I have some interesting decisions about the way my life is going.  As I end this posting one of my favorite scriptures popped in my head.

Jeremiah 29:11 (King James Version) 

11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Life is not perfect, but it is good. I will continue to live, laugh, and love.  It is a journey and I am learning and growing...
