Thirty is an age that most people take stock of their life and, more often than not, find they aren’t where they thought they would be. I truly thought at 30 I would be married and have children. This thought made me momentarily sad. But then I remember just how awesome I was. I am a Program Director already; I have a family that loves me, a close knit group of friends, and a boyfriend that makes me re-think men as a gender. I don’t think I would have necessary had these things had I gone another route. I am thankful for what I have here and now.
Before I reached 30, my body knew it was coming. I’ve put one a good bit of weight but in the right places. I am muscular but also have some rounded out curves. I now have ample curves top and bottom and my hip bones no longer stick out. This is great because I was worried about falling and having no cushion. I love my “woman” body.
So to make sure I continued my journey into being a woman optimistically, I asked my HIS girls to plan my birthday festivities. I told them to surprise me. They know me well and I trust them with my life. So I went about in oblivion and let my girls plan the celebrating for me. As a recovering control freak, this was very relaxing to me! I knew God put the right ideas into their hands.
My girls outdid themselves! They lined up a real Red Carpet Affair! They hired a car to take Jason and me to my favorite restaurant Ming’s Garden. I had dinner with some of my favorite people on the planet. Then my closest friends and I headed to the Renascence for a girl night out. I had some friends who could not physically be there but was there in spirit. I knew each person was attending because they truly cared for me. These people took up three tables and four beds! I am very rich indeed!
I have been blessed to have some of the best people in my life. I have been blessed with several wonderful babies that I love even if they aren’t mine. God made clear to me that night that 360 was nothing but a number and that I had accomplished a lot in my short life. I still have a lot of time to achieve so much in my life. I cannot let society tell me where I should be or why. God will tell me when it’s my time.
