Monday’s are usually reserved for Marriage Mondays and sharing tangible tools to help married and soon-to-be-married couples thrive in their marriages, and as much as I enjoy sharing on that subject, today has to be different. Today is my birthday :-). On Saturday, I started celebrating by doing the most responsible thing ever. I went to the DMV! My driver’s license was just about to expire, and it was time to renew it after about 10 years with this ID card I’ve grown so attached to. And while I sat there in the DMV waiting for my name to be called and held on this card that I’ve known since I was 18 years old, I started thinking about the places we’ve been, the people we’ve met, the heartbreak we’ve felt, and everything in between. Now, I’m not trying to get all sentimental over a piece of plastic (although surrendering it to the DMV teller made me get a little weepy, but I digress). But that very “adult” act made me reminisce about the last 10 years of my life–the ups, the downs, the bumps, the loop-de-loops and everything else. What a roller coaster it has been! There’s so much I would have done differently, and also so much I wish I could do all over again. But there’s no sense in trying to live in the past. All we can do is keep moving forward the best we possibly can. What we CAN do, is use our life experiences to be a blessing to others. So that’s what I’m hoping to do today. I’m sharing 28 lessons I would tell my 18-year-old self and all of you reading this!
I hope you enjoyed these little nuggets of wisdom from me to you!! I’m off to enjoy a sweet birthday with some of my favorite people. But until next time, enjoy a little (embarrassing) time warp from way back when and now! Have a great day, friends!!
Yup, that’s me at 5 years old with a mic in my hand. Once a performer, always a performer!
Well, this is embarrasing…haha! Nerd day in High School!
I got to direct my high school choir at the WHITE HOUSE! So cool!!
