Day 10 and I’m still keeping up with the blog challenge! This is a personal feat for me and I am pretty pleased that this routine seems to be sticking.

My 30th birthday is just around the corner, by next Saturday I will be there, the big 3-0. They say as you get older, time gets faster and that seems apparent now, some years became just blurs and like that they were gone.

I can’t say I have much to show for my life so far. I’m not saying I haven’t experienced anything, or my life has been dull, because this ย is by no means true. I just mean that if you look at me, I am just a girl with her words.

The last five years in particular, I put my life on hold for what I thought was love. I had given up a lot and in the end it didn’t work out. I have found myself starting again. I try not to compare myself to others, because we all live life at our own pace. I don’t regret trying to find happiness on the other side of the world. Even though it turned sour, I got one thing out of it, I proved to myself that I can put myself out there, even if it seems scary or impossible and I would do it again if it felt right. I have always been a fairy tale dreamer, chasing that happily ever after.

Now I am leaving my 20’s and I still am not where I want to be in life. I am however finally making plans and setting goals and I am going to see if I can get to where I want to be.ย Ideally I would love to write for a living. Of course this is a dream for many and it won’t come true for us all, but that doesn’t mean I am not going to try.

I don’t want or need “spectacular” to be happy. I just want for the most part a drama-free life, lots of fun, take any opportunity to laugh, adventure, someone to love, good food, a few good friends and my little bubble inside this chaotic world to be somewhat peaceful. Oh, and a pony! To be honest, most of all, I just want a place to call home.

I’ve nearly been on this planet for three decades, that in itself is an achievement. I’ve had some highs and some lows. For the most part, I can not complain. I am grateful for what I have in my life and the people that are in it that I really wouldn’t want to be without.

Until next time, Happy Friday!
