Photo a Day Challenge: Sunrise and New Life

May 17, 2013

2 posts in a day!! Wow..! 😀

So, it is my happy happy birthday today. *sing with me* I am very much a birthday person.. love to celebrate.. love to enjoy the day and I will be the one jumping about the house singing to myself! ha. Even though everyone warned me that turning 30 will be a depressing day and I will probably spend it in bed not wanting to see anyone’s face, it is quite the contrary. I am up and about. Have made plans to get dressed, go outside by myself, see a museum or two and treat myself to a wine-and-dine experience.. Of course, the dear husband has planned a lovely romantic evening too so can’t wait for that either.

Ok enough about the birthday plans.. coming to the post.

Day 13: Sunrise. The reason I am posting this lovely moment captured in Rajasthan, India is because it is an important day. The dawn of a new decade. The start of (hopefully) a maturer phase, although I doubt that highly! *rubs hands in glee* I definitely don’t want to lose my madness in the quest to grow up. I definitely don’t want to become serious in the quest to be the ‘age’. I do strongly believe that Age is just a number, thanks to having a mother who is just like that!

On my 21st Birthday I had told myself that I will experience everything till I am 30 then choose what I love the most and go with it. I think I have made that decision. What I want to do with this new phase are 5 things:

  • Love and respect my body. It is time to ditch the I-hate-this-part-of-my-body moment and embrace what I have and love it!
  • Love the Life I have. I have accomplished a lot in my 20s and it is time to honour that. I want to take this blessed life with both my hands and make it special.. so when I am 70 and old and with no teeth, I can babble about the fun times to my grand kids!
  • Focus on my bravest dreams and make them come true. Don’t get me wrong, I will continue to dream.. but all that I dreamt in my 20s has to now become reality. So it is time to push that dream and make it special!
  • Travel till my feet hurt and then travel some more. I think this is my motto for the 30s. I want to see every little and big spectacle in the world and experience the best of the things.
  • And finally, continue to dance and laugh. 2 of my traits that I wish to not hide nor forget!

So here is to a new phase and a new lifetime of making memories. It feels like a new beginning, I think! 🙂

New beginnings..
