The First Day of the Best Year of Your Life (So Far)

Your possibilities are unlimited!

Today is my birthday. Not the birthday of the blog (that was last month) but the actual anniversary of my day of birth.

Today I turn 29 years old. I have begun the last year of my “twenties” and I have to admit that the thought of getting closer to 30 actually scared me a little.

I’ve heard both good and bad things about turning 30 (thanks to everyone for their respective opinions) and I’ve come to a decision as to how I’m going to feel about it because let’s face it, life is not just the experiences we go through but the way we  DECIDE to deal with them too.

I’ve decided that this is going to be the best year of my life… so far! By the time I hit 30 next year I am going to be the best version of ME that has ever existed.

I am going to be a better dancer, I am going to be stronger, I am going to know more than I’ve ever known, I am going to be a better person. I am going to be better!

I’m going to reach my prime… and keep going!

People like to make excuses. Excuses not to exercise, not to learn new things etc. Generally they’re excuses not to take risks! I’ve decided to to use getting older as my MOTIVATION and not as my excuse!

You owe it to yourself to do the same. I don’t know how old you are reading this blog, you may be 21 or 43 or 75. It doesn’t matter to me. What matters to me is that you get something out of it. That you realize that you are capable of incredible things and that IF YOU WORK AT IT you are only going to get better from here out. Your age means nothing!

The next year is going to be full of changes for me. I know what I want and I know that I have to change things up to achieve it. I am going to be taking risks and that both scares and excites me.

No matter what happens from here out, this is going to be a spectacular year. I’ve decided to make it so.

Do the same for yourself!

Whatever you want is yours for the taking. What’s it gonna be?

Now, I’m gonna hit the gym to celebrate my birthday!

    Good column, even though a little short by your standards. Ha! I agree. This year is going to be good for me. I have a feeling there will be quite a few changes. And, I don’t know what will happen, but I’m ready for it. Good luck to you!

      That is exactly the attitude to have Greg! Best of luck with your continued adventures!

    Me alegra enormemente esa actitud… Los años no son más que escalones que nos indican un crecimiento o un recorrido – mejor- en la vida, ahí la decisión es de nosotros saber que hacer con cada nuevo amanecer. Me encanta eso de “tomar riesgos” sí, vivir es la opción y como diría un cantante por ahí: “Póngale vida a los años… es mejor” Un abrazo fuerte y feliz cumpleaños!!!
