Talk Tuesday: Where does the time go?




Well you guys, it's here. The last year in my twenties - what?!! I turned 29 two weeks ago, and I can't help but think - where in the world did my twenties go?? Better yet - where does the time go? I know I'm not the only one who wonders this. Year after year, we  celebrate another birthday and ask ourselves this question. Unfortunately, I think it's a question that will never be answered. Time will always keep ticking faster than we want it to (except the microwave timer, waiting 2 minutes for that always seems like eternity).

However, I have decided that I can soak up every minute by taking the time to really do things that I enjoy. I want to be more in the moment and to cherish this last year in my twenties. There are so many things I want to do and accomplish this year - so to kick off year 29, I made a 30 before 30 list. Although it's sad to think about my twenties coming to an end, making this list definitely got me excited about what's to come and where life is headed. I may not know where the time goes, but I do know what I'll be doing to cherish that time. I can already tell that it's going to be a great year - so cheers to year 29!
