I am turning thirty. Yes, thirty. Is that crazy or what?! But now that I am facing that big 3-0 birthday, I've realized that my life is NOT what it should be.
I always expected that by the time I reached this age I would have graduated from college, gotten a fabulous job, travelled the world, met a guy I wanted to marry and started a family... I have managed one. Just one. I finished my post-graduate studies a couple years ago, but with the wretched economy jobs are few and far between --to say nothing of GOOD ones. A lack of funds meant a lack of traveling and a lack of traveling meant a lack of meeting interesting people, aka men with gorgeous accents who live anywhere but here.
But the way to make my next birthday less scary and my life less of a disaster, I have decided to gather all my courage and make some changes. The first change is coming back onto Sparkpeople and losing all that weight I've been lamenting for years. Five years ago I was well on my way with the help of this site, but allowed work to take precedence to my health.
Next, I am planning to do a work exchange to another country. I will finally get to travel, and if I happen to also meet a man with whom I fall in love and get married...Well, i have no problem with that!
This time I am going to do it. I am going to achieve my dreams, looking and feeling fabulous. And in eighteen months my life will be everything I hoped it would be and more!
