There were so many times that I wished I could snap my fingers and fast-forward into the future – to here. I always imagined life would be much easier, certain things would be behind me, the children would be older, I would be reaping the rewards of the hard work I was so busy doing at that time.
There is no fast-forward, and there is no “easy button”. If there were, I would have gladly taken either one over the years of hard work that I invested. But its so very cool to be standing on this side of my goals, and to realize the results of that investment.
Big dreams seem to come true in the form of small mundane tasks, performed consistently and persistently over a long period of time…
My 35th birthday is a milestone I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. I can hardly believe that day is here but here I am. And my life is everything I could have wished for – and then some. I’m not claiming it to be perfect of course but I’m definitely at a very happy place in my life. From here I am creating a whole new set of goals, and am very much looking forward to the next decade of making them happen.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GINA MANAN
