I turned 30 this year. Yep. 30 years old.
It’s not a big bad number. It’s not old. I guess this just isn’t what I thought it would feel like. I still feel young. I still feel like there’s so much left to do. I still feel like I’m discovering myself. But when I say “I’m 30” to people…they react like they don’t think this is what 30 looks like too. I’m short, like really short, like 4’ 10’’ and three quarters. I should just say 4’11’’, but I say “4’ 10’’ and three quarters”. I’m not saying that anymore. A 30-year-old doesn’t say stuff like that. I know, I know, one day I will think it’s a blessing that people think I look younger than I am. But not now. I don’t feel like I get the respect I deserve because of my height. But I’m rambling…I have to make a change. That’s where this blog comes in.
I bought this domain a year ago and promised myself I would start a blog. I was working from home for a non-profit and didn’t feel like I was reaching my full potential. Well, a year later, I’m in a different job, a different non-profit and I still don’t feel like I’m reaching my full potential. I bust my ass at work, come home, take care of the house & the people in it (my boyfriend of 11 years), write SEO blogs for extra cash, watch TV shows, sometimes read, sometimes work out, try to relax with a little bit of wine, go to sleep and do it all again the next day. I’m not doing anything for me. I’m constantly taking care of other people, my two little sisters through a mentoring program, my friends, my boyfriend, his family, my family, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I love to help, I need to help, I feel useless if I can’t help. But, I need to do something for me. This is the start of my commitment to do me, find me, love me.
So, what can you expect from this blog? I plan on sharing my thoughts, expertise, frustrations and of course my wine…reviews of my wine, not the actual wine. That’s your job. If it sounds good based on my blog – go get it! And, enjoy it.
I look forward to learning and sharing with you all. Cheers!
