It’s the last day of my TWENTIES!!! Where is the opium pipe? Take the pain away! I can’t let go. I am going to fly into different time zones and make the day as long as humanly possible. I don’t want to turn the big 3-0!!!!
Okay, breathe. Inhale, exhale the thin Katmandu air.
I did a heck of a lot in my twenties. I’m gainfully employed, have no criminal record, and am still about the same weight I was in high school. These are things to cheer about! So let’s just sit up out of this fetal position and stop crying.
I have to say, with 30 looming a few minutes away (we’re a few hours ahead here in Nepal), that I really, really, really enjoyed my twenties. I traveled to about 35 countries, made amazing friends, did stupid things which I rather enjoyed, wrote articles I was proud of, fell in love, swam naked in the moonlight, was the girl who handed you an enormous check at a film festival, learned to be more patient and compassionate, started this blog with Stacey and of course…figured out the power of positive thinking and the importance of giving thanks.
Yes, I did some dumb things in my twenties and had some hurdles to climb, but looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing. So bring it on 30! I’m ready for you and can’t wait to see what the decade brings.
