This morning I woke up as a thirty-something. 

For a lot of people, that would bring feelings of regret, lost opportunities, and “it’s-too-late” kinda vibes.

But not me.

Truth be told, I’ve never been this excited about a new chapter in my life, and I can’t wait to create and discover all the magic that the next decade holds.

While reflecting on what I wanted to write on this milestone day for me, I was suddenly overcome with the realization that what I really wanted to share was not my biggest lessons or advice.

Instead, as I sit here in a well of gratitude and excitement for what’s to come, these are my biggest wishes for you, no matter what stage of life you’re in right now.
