The husband and I were driving the other day and got to talking about my upcoming birthday. In 8 days, I’m turning 29. 29! Shit I’m getting old. I have one more year until 30 and all of a sudden I had this fear that I haven’t accomplished everything I thought I should before this big milestone birthday. I try my hardest to live in the now but 30 is such a big deal. I have yet to find my first gray hair so that’s a win but what have I truly done in my 29 years of life that’s noteworthy?
Call me dramatic but his response kept me from jumping out of our moving vehicle:
- “You’re happily married.” – Emphasis on the happily. I could not be more satisfied with my marriage. I get to spend my life with my best friend. Just typing this makes me smile.
- “You wanted to be done having kids by 30.” – Mission accomplished. 2 girls and 1 boy. I’m done. (or am I?) I have an obsession with babies so who really knows?
- “You’ve been on the floor of Madison Square Garden as an athlete.” – Truth. MSG during the Inaugural Season of GRID was the highlight of my athletic career. Being in those locker rooms was magical.
- “You’ve successfully owned and sold your own business.” – Crossfit West Springfield was my baby. I’m happy I didn’t run it into the ground.
- “We live in our forever home.” – This is so true. I’m happy our babies can grow up on our slice of suburbia in Northern Virginia.
- “You’re raising 3 amazing children.” – I love my babies. They are my why. My goal is to forever provide them with a sense of security and two parents who would move mountains for them.
….and this is why I’m married to him. I have been with this man for a third of my life. He keeps me grounded. It’s easy to freak out when you turn 30, or in my case turning 29, but with him in my corner, every year on this planet can only get better. So here’s to the next 50 years.
