So I have a few years to go until I hit 30, but I know it’s right there, like a billboard sign in Times Square, shining in my face. Not that I have any problem with that, but at this point in my life, it is a really big deal for me. All of my life plans were designed with this number in mind. By the time I’m thirty, I should be married, have my dream job, live in a great home, maybe with a kid on the way. This was my vision of thirty before I could understand what any of that means. This year, I turned 27. It was the first year I really felt the need to rewind time. What have I accomplished at this point? A lot. But things really didn’t happen according to plan, and for someone like me who tries to map out their own fate, I am noticing that there is only so much you can control. All you can do is be flexible, be faithful, go with the flow and adjust your plans accordingly. This blog is about realizing reality, one revelation at a time. This blog is about my journey to thirty.
