Reverb 10: Defining Moment

My goal was to answer all the prompts, not necessarily to post every day or else finish them all in December. SO, on we go.

December 29 Defining Moment

Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year.


Joining a gym and doing home renovations made me feel three things: first, that I was a grownup (you'd think I'd feel that way by now, being married and graduated and having a job and owning a house and all, but sometimes I just feel like I'm still a kid) and second, that I was moving toward something, and third, that I had some semblance of control over my life.

These are very good feelings. These are empowering feelings. Especially the one where I feel in control. I can't complain.

yeah, it's shocking to me how rarely, even as i sit here 6 months from 30, i think of myself as a "grown-up." i get such a weird little charge when i do things with my law degree, for example. "ooh, i am doing grown-up things. look at me." good to see i'm not the only one.

Your home renovations have been inspiring this year. Seriously...I can't imagine doing everything you've done in a year.
