thirtythree.

{taken by my mom-6/2010}

in a few days i turn 33. i suppose it is a rather nothing birthday. not a milestone birthday like 21 or 35. just 33. another year older. but i have been feeling it so much. just thinking a lot about how i somehow went from 28 to 33. it happened so fast. when i was younger i imagined so much for myself at this age. it is interesting because in some ways my life is exactly what i hoped/expected. in some ways it is less. and then, of course, in some ways it is much more. life is just so damn unpredictable. that is what makes it scary and wonderful. as i get a bit older i am finding peace in who i am. i wouldn’t trade that for my twenties back. i feel serenity in the fact that i am living my life in a good, productive way. always, always room for growth and improvement. i am certainly not out there changing the world, but i am doing ok. and it feels good to be somewhat satisfied with your place on this earth. i am entering year 33 with still much uncertainty in a few areas of my life. but just embracing it all and knowing all works out as it should.

i am going to try and finish some more items on my last ‘list‘ before wednesday. and then onto the list for year 33!

I feel the same way about 21 -> 28. I think once you become a parent, there is a lot of repetition and you fall into a pattern (of sorts) and you miss that whole self thing for a while. Because there is someone even more incredible than yourself that preoccupies your time, heart and washing cycle. And you really begin to realise how fleeting time is and how much you want to see and experience… Is that more depressing on the eve of 33? Hmm, Sorry, Em… :)
