On Friday 27th November 2015 I turned 30!
For most people turning 30 would be a scary thought but for me I couldn't wait. I couldn't wait to say good bye and good riddance to my 20's. This last year I have learnt so much about myself and life in general and I am so excited to continue to learn and develop as i find out more about my life around me and what direction I could potentially send it.
All I know is that since I started to have a more positive outlook on life and concentrated on my goals and the things that made me happy, more amazing people, exciting opportunities and new adventures have presented themselves. We definitely are responsible for creating the world around us. It sounds like a load of rubbish and that's what I thought when I started being told that your "consciousness defines your reality". I just thought that I had been dealt a bad hand and I was meant to feel terrible when certain events happened as it would make me a stronger and "better" person.
I keep being reminded that this is not the case and this needs to stick in my head. One of my gifts from my friends was a photo book which they had made of what they described 'their best bits of my 20's'. Looking through it was like therapy for me. Even though I have been through setbacks and missed important occasions when I have been depressed, it showed me how much of an awesome time I have had also and I shouldn't forget those times. Unfortunately, I seem to have concentrated on the negative aspects of my life and not fully enjoyed the 'good bits'.
Well now this has to change. Tomorrow I set off on a new chapter, a short chapter but an exciting one none the less and who knows where it will lead me as long as I continue to have a open positive mind.
So the next time I post, I will be in Austria, working as a Physiotherapist in the ski resort of St Anton and Lech. Here's to the next 30 years being the best they can be.
