Jan. 30th 2011 I entered my 30's in the best shape of my life and with the love of my life. It couldn't have been a better day or a better month. Got an e-mail from ticket master showing what events were happening in my town and I was like omg I've always wanted to go to the Royal Rumble and it's on my birthday! I forwarded the e-mail to Dave and we made plans to go he got the tickets, we invited our brothers to come along and had a blast!
It's was fun!! Those were taken before all the fun started in the ring anyway!!
I got to blow out my candles and turned 30. Everyone always said turning 30 would be scary, because I'll be old and being 30 means you have be all adult like and what not. Well for me turning 30 was AWESOME! It was the best birthday I've ever had in my life. Turning 30 for me was full of happiness and joy and will be some of best memories ever! I am having the time of my life and those times have only just begun.
I've come to the realization that there is this big 'ol world out there and I have only yet to see maybe even a quarter of it. I want to see all there is to see and then some. Sometimes it feels like I finally awoke from a really long sleep. As if I were only half living my life and when I did, life became this place of wonder and full of entirely new experiences. I am doing things I never thought I would be able. Running a single mile was something 4 years ago that never crossed my mind. Setting my goals on running a marathon was something I never in my entire life thought was something I could accomplish, but I will. There are so many opportunities I have opened myself up to, so many things I used to think if only I could loose the weight maybe just maybe I would be able to do that.
You never really understand how hard of time and how many things are closed off to you when all you think about is the weight. Is someone going to say something or make some snide comment, am I too heavy for that ride, will I be able to walk that long and will I be able to fit in that seat. There are so many things that you close yourself off too and in turn you isolate yourself. When I finally realized I wanted to be free of the prison I had enclosed myself in I opened up a whole new world. I can truly say I have never been happier (most of that goes to having the best guy any gal could ever ask for) but the rest goes to the choices I've made to change myself. Not only the changes in how I look, but how I think and feel about myself. Turning 30 couldn't have been any better and turning 31 will just be the bestest. I can't wait to experience the rest of what life has to offer!!
