Hi there, my friends! I hope you had a blessed Easter, a meaningful Passover, and just an all-around wonderful weekend. We enjoyed some refreshing time with family.
Besides the holiday celebration, last week was also my birthday week! Monday was my birthday, to be exact. We had a nice albeit low-key celebration.
Birthdays always spur reflection in me, but the amount of introspection this year has surpassed all the other years. You see, a lot of things in my life have been shifting lately…
As you may recall me mentioning, my house flooded about two months ago – rendering it essentially unlivable, as it remains now. I won’t burden you with all the gory details of that saga, but suffice it to say it’s been a tryng time. The house situation, on top of all that happened last year, has left me re-evaluating many things.
Besides the house situation, other areas of my life are shifting as well. It’s as if God is rearranging things — wiping away the old, making way for the new. While I believe the changes to be for the longterm good, change is still uncomfortable. Stepping into the unknown is a little scary. But it’s good! I’m eagerly anticipating how this next chapter of life is going to shake out.
Anyway, I say all of that to preface you reading my list… The list isn’t meant to be negative at all. It just contains some real and tough lessons I’ve learned in the last year. All good — just part of being an adult.
Adulting is hard, y’all! 🙂
Literally crying! This is so inspiring and heart warming. Thank you for empowering us all to think so confidently of our future!
Friend! So grateful to call you friend now. Thank you for reading, commenting, and most of all — taking these fun, special pics! Xo
Beautiful list, lots of lessons to learn and then learn at an even deeper level.
And no age is too old (or young) to try new adventures, especially if you were too scared or anxious to do before.
I spent year #50 making a point of having adventures… <3
So inspirational, Katy!
I am on the cusp of turning 36 yo. You left me with such insight. While I can resonates with all 42 lessons.. It is really hard for me to express them with such simplicity. I hope within the next six years I gather the knowledge, experience and grace to make my own list and express it half as well as you have in this blog post. Thank you for sharing and Happiest or birthdays!
What an abundantly kind message! Thank you for that.
