Yesterday I did something I haven't done in years. I went skateboarding. I know, you are probably wondering.."Aren't you a little old for that?" or as my mom put it "you are going back to that huh?" Well no, I am not "going back to that" but I am going back to living life. Looking back I am starting to realize that at some point I stopped truly living and just started going through the motions of life. I was on autopilot and failed to realize it until now.

Life is getting real. In the past I got caught up in how I thought "I should" be living. I hung up my skateboard and got married. I thought that is what you do when you become an stop having fun and "grow up". Little did I know that not only is there room for fun in your adult life, but it is a necessity. What is the point of life if you can't have any fun? For the first time in a long time, I put all my worries aside and headed to the skatepark with my old skate buddy Ben. Holy high school memories.

I may not be the skater I once was, but going skateboarding yesterday held so much more meaning than it used to. The piece of wood that was under my feet felt a little foreign at first, but I could still control it, just as I realized I had re-gained control of my life. Yep, I am a 25 year old woman on a skateboard.... so what?

I never really knew what it felt like to live life in the moment. I was always looking forward or backwards, but now, I think it is pretty safe to say that I am living life in the moment and the possibilities seem endless. I am excited about life. I am still learning from the past, but I am enjoying the present, and excited for the future.


  1. i didn't know you could skate :o a lot of people your age make a living out of skating. So it's not as odd as you'd think.

    being an adult doesn't mean you have to stop having fun, it just means you'll probably think about the consequences more. I'm happy to hear you're excited about life, that's good :)

  2. Loved this! Nothing should hold you back from doing the things you love.... least of all age or expectations of others ;)
