Today is the day. The day I turn 29.
Yes, it is my birthday, but I will admit I’m a little nervous about it- even more than I think I’ll be for 30 next year. (Although many have been quick to tell me, “oh no, 30 is a tough one.”) All of a sudden the overwhelming thoughts of where I envisioned myself don’t match to where I currently am. I’m not the only one who thinks this way, right?!
But then I just need to remember to put things into perspective. I was talking to my mom as my birthday approached about a few stressors and she told me to look at my ladder of gratitude. So I started to think of the totally amazing things that I do have.
- A super supportive husband
- 2 crazy and wild, but healthy kiddos
- Getting to do something that I love everyday alongside an awesome team of women at tena.cious
- Getting to follow my entrepreneur passion as the co-founder of Hello Life
- A growing doTERRA team
- A loving family that would go out of their way for me
Well I could go on, but I will spare you. With all the things that fill me up, they can stress me out. Again, I’m not alone right?!
Phew. I didn’t think so. The last year has been like one big giant experiment to see how much I can really take on. (The final results have not been concluded!)
I’ve got some crazy big goals that I want to accomplish in my last year of my 20’s, which I know will take a lot of hard work. But one thing I have learned in the last year is that there has to be a balance to everything that I do.
So my big announcement on my first day of my 29th year … (insert drum roll, please) … I am launching a new podcast, It’s All A Balancing Act.
Do I have everything figured out at the ripe age of 29? NOPE. But I can’t wait to share my learning lessons on how to keep a marriage, kids, multiple businesses and more all moving in an orderly fashion.
So my only birthday request today is that you go over, give it a listen, and let me know what you think!
