Going on 33

Standard

I’m a 32 year-old writer, less than six months away from 33.

Over the weekend, my mom called me 35.

And I gulped.

Staring down the barrel of 40, the list of what I haven’t done is miles longer than what I have.

I haven’t written a book.

I haven’t been published in The Vogue, Femina, who’s who journal.

I’ve never penned an interesting story.

Nor appeared in print.

I haven’t founded a company, built a product, or been a Manager.

I’m not a “top-rated speaker.” Nobody’s paying me 100k, 10k, or even 1k to show up and open my mouth.

I’ve never gone viral.

All I am is all I am. And what I am is …

Wife to one husband.

Cheerleader to some amazing girls.

Yoga lover.

I have a job I love.

I work with unbelievably talented people who are wicked smart.

And I’m f****** good at what I do.

More importantly, I’m better at what I do today than I was a year and a half ago, a year ago, six months ago.

I’m sober.

My friends answer my calls and tell me the truth.

I’m a 32-year-old writer. Less than six months from 33.

So, yeah, life is pretty good, mom. Still … no need to rush things.

Reminder to self

Standard

Life teaches you many a things. Here’s a list down from some of mine!

1) Everyone deserves a chance.

2) Help others not because of who they are, but because of who you are.

3) There are no overqualified candidates, only under-reported age discrimination.

4) A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it. The truth is the truth even if nobody believes it.

5) A great boss believes in you even when you do not.

6) You do not get rejected, you get redirected.

7) Your value does not decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.

8) We live for the moment to die for. When we make a difference in someone else’s life, it is one of those moments.

9) Help others achieve their dreams, and you will achieve yours

10) Nobody is too busy to help. It is just a matter of priorities.

11) Seek respect, not attention. It lasts a lot longer. Seek loyalty, not obedience. It is worth a lot more.

Have a fantabulous day peeps!!
