It’s Not You, It’s Me

I know it’s been a while, and I’m sorry for that.  It’s not that I am out of ideas.  There’s just so much happening, so much on my mind, and at the same thing so little happening and so little clarity on the things going on in my mind.

Before I hit 30 I talked about how after college it’s sort of a free-for-all.  There is no societal structure to follow.  There are societal goals in terms of being able to survive on my own, but you pave the way to get there.  So I created my own plan, complete with goals and deadlines and milestone, some I reached, some I surpassed, some I failed. But I came out on the other side, survived up to this point.  But I’ve been so far away from structure for so long and I think that’s probably a good thing.  I see what society expects of me next, but I’m taking time to think broadly about what I expect from me.  Where am I going to go next is the question at the heart of it all, and along with that is this feeling that time is slowly slipping away and I need to make the best of every moment.

Having survived my 4th company conference, I am working on getting back to me.  In August I have 4 trips planned, all designed to be instant life long memories.  When I return, I will take the next big step and begin grad school.  I don’t know where that will lead, but I expect it to challenge me to think bigger, which is exactly what I need.  The world has grown bigger since I left the confines of my home town and I’ve experienced a lot, but I know I have so much more to experience, and with every big decision I make there will be a big life change associated with it.  It will be scary, it will be exciting, it will test my boundaries, and I just have to be ready for whatever comes my way and read the signs that fate puts in my path.

So I’m not breaking up with you readers — don’t think that for a minute.  There is so much more to come, so many thoughts and lessons I am sorting out in my mind. Just please be patient.  Beyond 30 has been really eye-opening, and I will share more with you soon.  Until then, keep calm and push!
