what i will leave and what i will gain

i may not feel that different when i wake up tomorrow. sure, i will be a year older. sure, i will be happy to celebrate a birthday. but this birthday is a turning point for me. it is time for new. it is time to leave things behind and look forward. as i have been thinking about why my 30th birthday is so important to me it is because it is a chance to move on. it is a chance to shed my skin.

these are the things that i will shed, leave, and keep in my 20’s. these are the things i am moving away from:

pride
unnecessary fear
a house i don’t need
a failed marriage
embarrassment of mistakes
tolerance of being treated poorly
religion
materialism
myspace
being vehemently adverse to having children
being afraid to say how i feel
self hatred
self sacrifice for things that don’t matter
guilt of debt
hangovers

i have no idea what my 30’s will bring. but i DO know that they will bring a greater awareness of who i am, what i want, what i stand for and what is important to me. i learned a lot in my 20’s. they will always be near and dear to my heart and i will always be thankful for what they taught me. but here is a big FU to my 20’s. as nysnc says, BYE BYE BYE.

i am different. i am new. i am better. i am chelsea nelson, and i am going to kick some 30’s ass!!! 🙂

can’t wait to celebrate with all my wonderful friends. ug. i love my life. LOVE MY LIFE!!!!!!!
