The Countdown Begins...

My Nico

I am about a month away from my birthday and, unlike the last couple of birthdays, this year I'm excited. I'm not planning on doing anything extravagant or plan a big party or something, but I am very keen on actually feeling it and enjoying it.

Truth is, lately I've been putting myself out there to live and feel things that I wouldn't have tried before. Even to meet new people, totally off character for me. I'm the kind of girl that shies away from change and sometimes even from new experiences, but right now, since such a big change is inevitable and there is nothing I can do to stop it, I guess I've just decided to embrace it and truth is I’ve been doing these things without the slightest hesitation.

Also, it is a big birthday. I'm turning thirty and for the first time in my life I am starting to feel like an adult. I no longer have excuses as to why I haven't been trying my hardest to look for my better life. After this week I am totally free and can pretty much do whatever I want. Now I just have to know what that is!
Even though this is not how I’ve imagined my life at thirty (it sounds so ancient when you’re younger), I do love my life and am very grateful for so many things that weren’t part of my plans but that I can no longer live without.

S.Torpes, September

Truth is I've been given this really big opportunity and it's coming up really soon, but I must confess I've been struggling with my self confidence and am doubting if I'll be able to do what it takes to get the results I need from that event. I've talked (or rather written) my way to this opportunity, this meeting, and am now wondering if I can rise up to the challenge, or if they'll think I'm just a really good talker (writer), but not so good at execution, which is, I suppose, my worst nightmare.
I do hope I can get it together by then.

Sorry about the rambling, but this blog for me is so much more than just a place to show my projects, I guess I see it as kind of a journal, I’ve created it originally with the single purpose of documenting my life so I could revisit it whenever I wanted to. Truth is I’ve been forsaking that purpose and have been more concentrated on reaching all of you. But I’m also hoping that if you take the time to visit this blog you’ll want to see my projects, but also know more about me. So there you have it! :) Thanks for reading.

  1. Hey, I just started following you and was reading back through your old posts. And I have to say that... Yes I agree one hundred percent about turning 30. I am excited about it as well, but part of me dreads it! :) Hope you can like it eventually.
