Entering a New Decade, The 20’s
Let’s just pause for a moment and realize that we are entering a new decade. Not just a new year. We are entering the next 20’s.
The Nineteen 20’s
A hundred years ago fashion became a statement, flappers walked the streets of Paris and Jazz clubs became a hit. I’ll be honest, I wouldn’t mind being a lady in her thirties a hundred years ago. So much has happened over the past 100 years and yet here we are again. Entering the 20’s and I can’t help but to think of what great and magical things are to come and awaits us in this decade.
A good friend told me “let’s toast to the new decade and prepping for favor.” Absolutely love this person. She’s the one that inspired this post.
The past ten years
Wow I can’t even begin to think about what has happened in the past ten years. Ten years ago I was a mom of two tiny little girls, still a little insecure, living in our first home we ever purchased and still believing and dreaming like a child. Totally unaware of what life would dish over the next ten years.
I’ll be honest the past ten years, my thirties I’ve learnt so much. Not just about myself but about life. I’ve grown as a human, especially when to keep my mouth shut and patience. Oh my word, patience and some more patience. I’ve learnt how to “deal” and how to “trust” God’s perfect timing.
I’ve lost friends, even good friends. Some of them came back into my life, others just became people I once knew and loved.
Over the last decade I chose. I learned this. I chose who. I chose when and I chose what. I learnt that my life is my choice and in some instances it has cost me dearly but it has also helped me to grow. Get to know myself. Understand what I want, what I need and maybe even the why to all those things. I learnt how to become me, uniquely me. I became friends with people I didn’t like in my twenties,
I learnt and finally understood the phrase unconditional love and love at first sight. Motherhood has shifted my entire mind, the person inside me. I’ve learnt what it really means to be a wife. I’ve definitely learnt how to pray as a mom and a wife.
We renewed our beautiful vows after ten years of marriage, a magical night that meant much more to me than just a new spark. We left the place that’s been home to both my husband and I for thirty years. We completed our family and we are dreaming new dreams, moving into different directions and finding our new rhythm.
Time Doesn’t Wait
Ten years have come and gone and now the next ten years awaits us. New vows, new stages for our kids, new dreams and I can’t wait to see where we will be in ten years time from now.
2020 is not just another new year, it’s a new decade. It’s big. It’s magical. I know it’s going to be amazing and I know we going to love and live it to the full.
My motto for the next ten years will involve two key things I am going to try my best to live by. And yes I will fail some days, there will be weeks or months where I might loose focus but I’ll never lie down. I’ll never stop.
My words for 2020: “I will do everything in my power to do the possible every day while I know God will be there, busy doing the impossible at the same time.”
The Decade Of The Next 20’s
My motto for the 20’s – our new decade: “kill them with kindness.” (A little something I learnt in my thirties)
Do you have great new plans for the next decade?
