My 29th Birthday, 29 achievements and 29 dreams
It was 29th birthday on the 14th November 2013 when I wrote this post …
Some people would freak out as it’s just 1 year missing to reach 30. I know, don’t remind me 😀
I admit I always wanted to get married when 28 … and I think this is the only dream I’ve ever had that did not come true and will not any more. The only one.
But years were passing by and I realized there are more important things in my life than just getting married.
It’s not that I don’t want my own family, don’t get me wrong, I really do and I deeply love children.
However, I guess someone bigger than me had different plans with my life first …
Exploring the best life has to offer while exploring myself, my heart, my character, my mind, my will, my strength … has been the aim of my life until now.
I believe I had to discover what I am capable of and what I truly love from the deep of my heart, what makes me happy first, then inspire others to do the same and then once I know who I am everything else will fall in place.
Right now I am in the state of everyday gratitude and you might have noticed I publicly state who and what I am grateful for every day on my Crazy Sexy Fun Traveler Facebook Fanpage.
I am also in the process of learning how to be happy in my own skin …
I am sure I need to find peace within myself and realize it depends only on my thoughts and not on what is happening in the outside world around me. Yoga and meditation help me with this extremely well.
I am just learning that right now … on the other hand, I know now that all my little dreams I fulfill one by one do make me happier and more content, and give me some sort of pleasure.
For many people the biggest things to accomplish by the age of 29 are marriage, kids and/or career.
For me it is something completely different.
The most important achievements in my life are the little details that set my heart on fire as well as making other people smile.
First of all, I am grateful for every single person who has taught me something, grateful for every single lesson in my life and grateful for my strong will to move forward no matter what.
I am also grateful for the following …
