It has taken me 35 years to get to where I am today. I’m sure you’re saying, “that’s obvious, Liz” but if I think back to the experiences I’ve had, every one of them has made me, ME!
I heard a great quote from NYC’s Z100 last week: “If you can look back on the last year of your life and you have made a significant change for the better then it has been a successful year”. Every year I look back to where I was and where I am. I never really saw the success because I was blinded by insecurity. I never appreciated what I did accomplish because I didn’t feel it was anything.
The change in my life has made me see more clearly, appreciate my accomplishments without someone telling me and serves as a reminder that I am pretty awesome. I have never enjoyed my life as much as I do right now.
I’m not perfect. I’ve made mistakes. I have no regrets. Happy 35 to me.
