lynn in love with birthdays

Hi darlings... remember little old me? I know I've abandoned this little blog of mine for a while... and while I wish I could come up with great excuse to make it all right, I don't have one.... except that life is going really well and that I'm really happy and busy.

....and I turned THIRTY today! Yup it's my birthday and it's a big one. Honestly, it really pains me to think that I'm this old. I was really caught with lots of anxiety the last past few weeks thinking of things I haven't yet accomplished yet after living the thirty years that God has given me. I think that I don't have a family yet, that I live in an undecorated apartment the same way I did 10 years ago, that I don't have a big name yet in either one of my jobs.

...but then I remembered, so how blessed I really am, just how much I've changed and made huge steps even in this past year. Honestly, I feel more comfortable in my own skin today than I ever have! (isn't that SO cliche?? isn't that what every celebrity says in the magazine when talking about their age? but it's true, it's true!).

and while I still says things like "when I grow up... i'll do this or that..." , I have to remember that I have grown up!

Just a few things that I'm grateful today that I'm accomplished in 30 years.
1. I found and married the love of my life. We have a wonderful marriage and I cannot even fathom how I deserve this.
2. I finished medical school and my internal medicine residency
3. I made life decisions that were hard but was based on what was most important in life, but were against the social norms and meant less income
4. I was able to find a solution to doing both medicine and starting a business that I'm passionate about.
5. I'm still very close to my family
6. I've kept up the faith
7. I've stood up for my principles
8. I have created a life for myself that is full of love and friendship

I cannot wait for the next thirty years!!
