Twenty-Nine


OMGOMGGOMG I'm almost 30 ahhhhh I'm getting so OLD!

Just kidding :). I'm not that girl! I actually LOVE birthdays and so far I LOVE getting older. As I enjoy my last year of being in my 20s, I have some goals and I'm excited also for the next decade. Every year so far has just gotten better and better ❤️.

Other than New Years, my guess would be that the most frequent time people reflect on their lives and goals is their birthday. Normally I just celebrate and move on, but this year I have a specific "moving into my 30s, let's get this under control now" goal. And that is, loving my body more. Now before you think that this is 1) totally self focused or 2) super new agey, maybe I should phrase it another way: I want to be confident in the body God has given me.

That doesn't mean I'm giving up my love of fitness! Haha. No, rather, it means that even the most fit (way more fit than me) have imperfections in their body and I need to accept mine. Instead of dwelling on them, I need to move on from them and be comfortable and confident as I am. 💪🏻 Basically, focus on the positive! I tend to be a perfectionist in some areas of my life and in those areas it is easy never to feel good enough. When you let that thought take root then it is a destroyer of confidence! 

Instead, focus on the positive things! psalm 139:14 says " I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. "

God knows exactly how he made me and you and it is wonderful! He doesn't make mistakes! That doesn't mean we can't strive to be healthy and "in shape", (after all, if our body is Gods temple *1 Cor 6:19* we should take care of it!) but it does mean that I need to relax and ....to be honest....focus on more important things in life :)

So! Here is to 365 days of being 29, and learning to be more confident in who God has made me to be! 

Striving every year to do my best and build on the previous year!
