30 Reasons to be Thankful at 30

  1. I’m constantly surrounded by people who love me and see me for who I am, not who they desire me to be.
  2. I’ve learned the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. What looks to be perfection in the life of another really isn’t.
  3. True beauty isn’t based on what one looks like on the outside, but truly what lies on the inside; joy, peace, patience, love, kindness etc…
  4. At 30 I’ve had the pleasure of continually being broken by God daily, allowing him to use my mess to speak life and truth to others.
  5. Celebrations are acceptable at any age, even at 30 I can still party!!
  6. Some dreams and goals die, but they can be resurrected. I also have the capability of dreaming new dreams. Age doesn’t hinder you from achieving your goals.
  7. I’m wise beyond my years and have been given many platforms to share this wisdom with others; whether they are seasoned or youngings.
  8. My family is well, safe, prospering, fulfilling their dreams and placing their marks on the world.
  9. No two years ever look the same. God’s unique choice of what I get to be apart of or experience leaves me in holy expectation, even after 30 years of life.
  10.  Goldfish is still being made. Pepperidge Farm is still in business and I have tons of goldfish here with me in Swaziland, Africa.
  11. I’ve gotten to travel all over the world sharing the gospel of Christ letting his light shine through me. That to me is an amazing feat.
  12. Great music is still being created all over the nations, which means I can dance my life away!!
  13. I am blessed enough to even see the year 30. Past decisions could have cut my time on earth so short.
  14. The joy and peace that fills me when I am surrounded by the younger generation excites me. I truly receive life when I am around them.
  15. I still love to read and someone was smart enough to create a device where I can read anything, anywhere, at any time without having to carry books around all the time (though I still buy books regularly).
  16. It’s ok to make mistakes and not to pretend that you are perfect. Messy is the new normal!!
  17. The kingdom of God is still able to bring lie and truth to my life every day and my eyes are open to new revelations from Him each day.
  18. I’ve gotten the opportunity to travel!!
  19. Being able to experience and soak in God’s beautiful creation daily.
  20. To my knowledge, I am healthy and have the ability to do the things that I love mentally and physically.
  21. Relationships aren’t always how I would expect them to look like, but I’ve been blessed to have long-lasting ones. People who have and will be there for all things. #HOMETEAM
  22.  At 30 my possibilities are still endless. I can do anything, go anywhere, be apart of anything, just because.
  23. 30 years of being celebrated!!!! I am excited for the upcoming years and celebrations that I am priveleged to enjoy.
  24. Though I am not fully financially stable I have never been without. God continues to provide exactly what I need when I need it, no matter what.
  25.  I am thankful for the ability and the honor it is to write and share my thoughts with others; with the hope that one day my story will be on display for all to see in a book store near you. 🙂
  26. Prayer changes things and I’ve experienced over the years how faithfully praying can change not only my life, but the lives of those around me.
  27. I am worthy! Worthy of love, of belonging, of trust, of affection, of attention, and so many other things. Though lies can creep up on me every once in awhile, I’ve learned how worthy I truly am.
  28. Never ending GRACE!!!
  29. I am able to bring life to places that I place myself within. I am filled with joy, laughter, love, peace, and understanding which helps me go places and reach people I’ve never dreamed of.
  30. I have breath in my body. I am thankful for the source of my life and the way that Papa has always cared for, protected, fought for, and loved me more then anyone else ever could.
