1. It’s funny because 30 has definitely brought a change to my mindset, maybe more than anything else. I don’t have it all together by any means, I am still single, still working through debts, still trying to feel confident in my career, still debating getting additional degrees or secondary degrees…BUT, for the first time in my life, as much as I want to travel and see the world, as much as I want to be adventurous, I want to do it all while having stability and community around me. I want to buy a house (who needs a man? I’ll do it as a single lady!) and I want to make it my own and just keep moving forward and if a man finds his way into my life and our lives fit, awesome; if not, I’ll keep doing my thing until the time is right. I can’t say I’ve always had that mindset.

    I can’t even begin to tell you how much this speaks to me right now!! I have recently been feeling busier than I want to be and even overwhelmed at times between work and my responsibilities in my church organization. I was praying about how to simplify my life. Then last week it hit me – get an MBA. Not the answer I was expecting but it feels like the right move. It won’t simplify my life, it will certainly complicate it. But it feels SO right. I’m scared out of my mind and I’m not even super confident I can get into the program I am aiming for. It’s definitely not what I was expecting to happen to my life right now (I was getting excited because I’m finishing off my undergrad loans this year. Didn’tt expect to then to dive into grad loans) but just like you I’m excited and I definitely want it. So here’s to change and taking leaps of faith and entering new chapters in life 🙂
