New LO to share

I just wanted to share my most recent layout.

Here's the journaling:

I'm turning 30 this year. It's happening in about 4 months. I'm starting to get scared. It's starting to stir stuff up.

Mostly, I'm just struck by the ever increasing awareness that this all goes by so quickly. The strange part is, is that as I get older, there is almost a comfort in the process, the absoluteness of it. We are absolutely going to get older, and it will absolutely come to an end. That seems less scary to me now than it used to. The part I have a hard time with however, is in this "ever increasing awareness that this all goes by so quickly", I feel so much more pressure now to make it all matter; to not let it get away from me, wasted. It makes my choices feel more critical.

But: I make hard choices. I find faith in myself. I take the opportunity to grow.

tfl!
