to say goodbye to my twenties
and enter 30.
But I'm ready.
Ready to bid farewell to a decade that began
like a wild ride on an enormous ocean wave
and one that's ending with toes dipped into high tide
settled onto the stable ground of Faith
rather than the tumultuousness sea of self.
These past ten years have been all about realizing that
I am not the ends to all means.
That the Earth spins for more than just me.
That self is in competition with Spirit.
That there's more to me than just me.
One by one I number the years,
and I see the blessings unfold
from messes, sea glass polished shiny by waves.
I see grace swell up and carry me onto shore and
love salve the wind and sun burnt onto my weathered skin.
there's no dread
or twinges of sadness
just gratitude for the days I've known
and praise for the ones still spread out ahead.
