Progression of me

from eighty four to now…

A Fresh, New Chapter

In just under an hour the clock will tick over to midnight and it will be my 30th birthday.

Random fact alert – According to this calculator I am 10,957 days old!!!

Today was the final day in my 20’s and I was reminded of this by a number of text messages/voicemails from friends saying “Happy last day of your 20’s” or something to that effect!

As excited as I am about the 30 things I have been preparing for, I still cannot quite shake that slight anxiety I am currently feeling.  People keep telling me not to worry; and I’m trying – oh I’m trying – but it’s hard to just switch off completely.

Tomorrow I intend to get three of the 30 things completed which is exciting.  They are the letter, going to the movies on my own and I’m hoping to do a good deed for a stranger too.  I have spent this afternoon finalising my list of 30 books I am to read this year.  My list is on Goodreads – so if you would like to follow me and my progress on there let me know 🙂  I may even note the books and also the movies on this blog as I finish them…I’ll see how I go.  Either way – the final lists will go up one year from now.

So here’s to the next year.  To a new decade and a fresh new chapter in my life.  My twenties have seen many changes – I started my twenties on the other side of the world in England, to this day, one of the most important experiences of my life.

I had my first serious relationship at the age of 21, and I spent much of my twenties in Sydney.  I met many people – some who came and went, some who have remained in my life.  Every one of them has had a purpose.  I have travelled thousands of kilometres overland through Africa, and to many other countries (with many more to come!!), I’ve been on one hell of a weekend trip in Singapore for work, met my wonderful niece, seen my sister get married, watched friends become parents and most recently gained a new passion in health and  fitness.

When I look back it’s been a pretty bloody good ride the past 10 years, yes there have been some tough times too – but these have only made me stronger.  Over the past 10 years I have learnt many things about myself and the world around me and am continuing to learn every day.  I’ve been told that your 30’s are the best years of your life and I’m starting to believe those people could be right.  Every decision I have made in my twenties has led me to this moment now…and as I finally start to feel comfortable in my own skin and really know what it is I want to do with my life, I think, maybe I am ready to take that step.  Sometimes you just need a little push…and life, it would seem, is going to be that push!

So…stuff it!  Here we go!

1 Year On….

Yes, I know, I’ve been MIA for a few weeks now – but I’m happy to report that whilst being away I’ve made a few big decisions and I’ve set some goals.  I feel like I’ve taken a few steps forward.  Today I logged on to WordPress to write an update, and funnily enough today is the 1 year anniversary of Progression Of Me.

A LOT has changed over the past year and the two biggest lessons learnt for me would be to trust your gut and to be true to yourself.  I will go into more detail about this in my next post, but ultimately if you’re not true to yourself, if you’re living a lie, what is the point?  My move back home was one of the best things I could do…by being in Sydney I wasn’t happy and my health was suffering.  Although I’ve still got a long way to go it’s one step at a time…

This all may seem quite cryptic right now but I will explain in my next post.  Instead of an update today, I want to share with you a video I came across on a wonderful website I recently stumbled across.  The points this speaker makes can be used in any situation and I think everyone could learn something from this.  Enjoy.

Shout Out Sunday!

Along with my change in the look of my site I have decided to make a few small changes in content.

The first change is that I plan to write a short post every Sunday which is a Shout Out.

Either to: a fellow blogger who has motivated me, informed me of something awesome or just kept me smiling this week;

To a site which I may have stumbled on which is full of great information;

To someone I know who has done something special;

Or eventually – if you have someone you want me to give a shout out to just flick me a comment and I’ll be happy to give them a mention!

Today’s Shout Out is a bit of a general one and goes to everyone who is on a journey!  Be it at the beginning, middle or nearing the end!  Whether it is a fitness or health related journey, a career related journey or simply getting by day-by-day.  YOU’VE GOT THIS!!!  YOU CAN DO IT!!!  All you need to do is give it a go.  Your best is all that it takes – no one elses 🙂
