And So I Turn 30…

I’ve had various mixed feelings about today. Mostly along the lines of panic (“eeeek!”), indifference (“who cares, it’s JUST a number”), excitement (“psshhh…30 is the new 20!”), and defiance (“I refuse to believe that I’m old!!!”).

What it all comes down to–I’ve realized–should be not so much how I feel about this milestone, but what wisdom I can impart my two-year-old son. What, with all the highs and lows, blessings and blows, rejoices and regrets of life thus far, can I gift him, on this my 30th birthday.

THAT wisdom can be summed up into this Holstee Manifesto, for which I am grateful someone else have already come up with–but pretty much sums up my every thought of lesson and legacy for Miguel.

This is your LIFE, son. Live it, and live it well.

    Happy birthday! You don’t look 30, you know. You look very youthful. Don’t worry about age! This is Your Life placard is great, too.

      Thanks so much for stopping by! This new age is so far giving me a new fire…to accomplish what I didn’t in my previous 29 years. Not anymore worried at all…
