I am a pretty ambitious person. I set my eyes on something and run like hell to get it. Many times, though, I have found myself swimming in stress and confusion. Moving so fast that I don’t know what my next step should be. Moving so quickly that I lose sight of what I really want to gain. Even beginning to feel disconnected to what I am doing.
The best thing to do has been to pause. To stop for a fleeting moment or for months on trying to make whatever it is happen. Taking time to reflect, re-evaluate, and ground myself in my experience. Getting to the root of the stress, confusion, and disconnection so that I can take even stronger steps from here on out.

I turn 31 next month, and want to reflect on my first year as a thirtysomething. Follow my journey here as I post each day with another 30 by 31 lesson.
