"the mind is a powerful thing"

life is starting to slow back down to its normal rhythm, and with it i've been able to spend more time processing things that have been happening this year. back in january, i wrote out a list of 30 things to do before i turn 30 (which will be february 2013). i tried to find that list the other day, but i don't remember where i put it. maybe i should have included "place this list somewhere i won't forget" on the list. i wanted to go through it and see where i have made progress, if any. i do remember that many of the things were in the self-improvement category, as opposed to more typical "bucket list" items. i was talking to one of my roommates last night. i mentioned that around new years 2009-2010, i had a feeling that 2010 would be a fantastic year. and it was... i would dare to say it was the best year of my life thus far. and i had a feeling that 2011 would be a year of growth. and i would say that so far, it has been. mind over matter. self-prophecy. what have you. i'm excited to see what the next seven months hold.
