30’s The New 20: I’m On Fire Still

Wowzer! I am turning 30 years young. I’m so excited! I have no hesitation, no regrets, I feel great, I look good, c’mon now, let a gural live candidly and abundantly as I should. I’ve never felt so confident, audacious and self-assured. Today, is the first post of my 30 day journey before the age of 30. I celebrate my birthday on 12.20 as the gracious, Sagittarius, but the complete opposite of the astrology definition.  It says that I’m known to be an extrovert that loves to be the life of the party, energetic and outgoing. An extreme party goer that despise the idea of commitment or stability.

Well, let’s say that definition is completely wrong. I am an introvert that love commitment, a sense of stability, I quiver at taking drastic risks and although I can make a party litty,  I normally leave a large gathering after 3 hours because my energy is completely drained. I tend to call myself mysterious, intuitive and very analytical. I let no one or nothing define me. I am who I am, I really can’t be put into one category. Let’s just say, I’m Ro’Shunda.
