A Farewell Letter to my 30’s

30s

A letter to my 30’s.

Dear 30’s:

You broke me down and made me beg on my knees for mercy. You raised me up and showed me that I am enough. You gave me the most trying years of my marriage but you used it as a vessel to teach me about my own self worth. You helped me discover that my husband was always my soul mate – and then you swiftly took him away. You mysteriously used his death to breathe life into my soul. You gave me faith when my world was rocked to the core. You blessed with the last of my 3 beautiful children. I don’t love you, but I respect you. You have been a hard, no nonsense teacher and there is no question that I thought you hated my very existence, but I now know that this is far from the truth. I am indifferent to saying goodbye – it’s not that I don’t care, I just know that you have fulfilled your purpose in my life and I am ready to let you go; actually it was you who taught me to surrender. Wait, before you go – I want to say thank you. I want to thank you for the greatest gift of all. You have been an amazing guide in teaching me what my purpose here on Earth is. Some people wait a lifetime to find out, some never find out – and you gave it to me at 39 years young. I am humbled. So…before we go our separate ways please know that I will never forget what you have taught me. Through the pain, the tears, the despair, the loss and then the clarity – I have learned that my duty here in this temporary space, is to be my truest, most authentic, most compassionate self so that I can use my God given gifts to be of the highest service. I got it…I’m crystal clear. You have prepared me well. You will not be forgotten. Farewell 30’s, you can leave in peace.
