I will officially be the big 3-0 in one Month!!
On July 1st I will bid my twenties goodbye.
How do I feel??
Well, i'm full of so many emotions.
I feel blessed to be alive and to be surrounded by so much love.
On the other hand I can't believe how time goes by!
I feel like it was yesterday that I was so excited to be 15yrs old and now I wish I
could freeze time.
I bid goodbye to the decade that defined the woman that I am today.
My twenties will always be remembered as the time I lost what I thought
was my true love and shall always be known as my "what if"!
I learned to let go of things that were not good or meant for me, best part is it opened the
doors to a future full of unimaginable happiness and love.
|My other half|
The decade in which I found my other half and together formed what has come to be my life
and the most important thing in this world!
|This pic makes me so teary eyed!! I love my mom & dad SO much!!|
The decade in which I learned to appreciate my parents even more - yes that tends to happen when you
yourself become a parent :)
This was the decade in which I lost some of the most important people in my life, as
a consequence I found the inner strength I thought I didn't have!
I also learned that when you make a mistake, you don't look back. Instead you get back
up and focus on your future without repeating the same mistake and learning from it instead.
In other words I grew up!!
Life is never easy, who ever said it was, was bullshitting you!
So you see as a woman I feel accomplished - I know I am, I am a proud mother and wife to the most amazing patient and supportive husband!
I don't have to worry about finding true love - Because I am married to my soul-mate!
But as a person I lost myself a little.
I don't regret it, I did it all for good reasons to be a good mother and wife, and to create what I
am happy to call my home and family.
But now is the time to bring Karina back!!
I've already signed myself up to a gym and have been going for the past 3 weeks,
I will be going back to school at the end of August and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for
a school job that I am hoping will come through!!
I will also start training for my very first - hold your breath...
ING NYC Marathon!!
And I have many more tricks up my sleeve :)
I want my future children to be proud of me as my Miguelito is, even prouder if that's possible!
I want them to know that it is NEVER to late, and that the only person that can stop you is yourself.
"There is never an obstacle to hard but the one you build yourself"
- Me :)
So 30's I'm ready, I will receive you with somewhat open arms - haha!
They do say the 30's is the new 20's :)
And to you my dear 20's it will be a bittersweet goodbye, I'm sad to bid goodbye but
know you will always be a part of me and the person that I am today!
P.S. I do apologize in advance for future posts leading up to my birthday. I am after all
bidding my youth goodbye - haha!!
Seriously, i'm bidding a decade goodbye!
