Once we hit adulthood, time seriously seems to speed up. I pinky promise swear I was just celebrating my 30th birthday! And now I’m at the mid-point of my 30s. Over the past few weeks I’ve been jotting down some reflections and thoughts and compiled this list of 35 reflections.

They are in no particular order – just thoughts that popped into my head as I started writing and thinking on where I am, what I’ve experienced and what’s on the horizon.

  1. I am enough.
  2. I am worthy.

  4. I learn from my life experiences – the good and the not so good.
  5. I embrace change – even the unexpected ones that seem to throw life into a spiral.
