…your destination does not travel to you

May 13, 2013

It’s my 34th birthday, and today I came across this TED Talk that is close to my heart.

http://www.ted.com/talks/meg_jay_why_30_is_not_the_new_20.html

This year, my husband and I will celebrate our 15th anniversary, so those of you quick with math have already figured out that I was just 19 when I married. I also have two children, ages 9 & 7. You could say my twenties were eventful. Having experienced working with teens most of those 15 years I do not recommend this exact timeline for most people, but despite some major challenges it has been an amazing and wonderful ride for us.

With as much as we’ve accomplished already, I also know that life has a lot of adventures left in store including travel and possible ministry and career paths. God’s not done writing our stories no matter how old we become.  So, as you watch the video, please keep in mind that it’s not important that you have all your big events and decisions checked off your list in your twenties. What is important is that you are taking the steps she recommends for moving toward your future. Life’s journey can not magically transport you to your future with all your hopes and dreams acquired if you treat now like one long, pointless pit stop.
