7: You realize you know less than you actually thought
I remember being in my twenties and even younger thinking to myself I know what is best for me and if anyone tries to give advice I would be thinking to myself ( you don’t know me and I will just do what I want ) I mean I was very opinionated and set in my ways. The older I got boy did I figure out quickly how much in life I still need to know. I mean I am at a stage now where I just want to learn because I feel like I know nothing haha.
I think it is a good place to be though. I think that one can get very far In life if we keep a teachable spirit and realize that we don’t ever arrive. If we are open to learning all the time I think we will be better leaders, better friends and just better people in general.
8: You realize how far you have come and how much you have grown
As much as you realize How much you still need to grow, there is nothing like a 30th birthday to make you look back on the last 10 years to only realize that you definitely are not the same person you were. I most certainly am not. 10 years ago I was a very lost soul who didn’t know who she was in this world. I was so sure of what I wanted out of life but at the same time so unsure of who I was as a woman and did not know what I had to offer in this life.
It is crazy to look back and see the growth now, even though through the years I never thought that or never saw any progress. Now almost 30 and my whole perspective on life is so different. I only have God and my mother to thank for that. If it was not for her constant praying and if it wasn’t for God who never gave up on me even though I have failed him countless times I think I would be a completely different woman today.
Now I am married to the most amazing man I could have ever dreamed of and completely do not deserve. His love and kindness towards me is just a testimony to Gods goodness toward me. I look forward to many more years with him by my side growing and challenging each other even more.
9: You realize your relationship with God is the most important thing.
Above all else, every life lesson is super important but for me it all pails in comparison if I don’t know Jesus. I have pulled my relationship with Jesus on the sidelines one too many times and time and time again I have come to a point where I realize that I simply can not do my life without him. Like a song I know called Remembrance “ You’ve been so so good to me, oh to think where I would be if not for you if not for you”
I choose now to live a life full of Jesus not only because Life with him is better but because I can’t be my true self without him.
