A few days ago, I turned 30. I was actually looking for this moment, 30 sounds good.!
My BFF finds being 30 stressful, because she feels like she has so much to figure out and achieve, and I can understand that. All of our paths are different, and each decision we take define that somehow.
I am 30 and found the love of my life when I was freshly 18, after my heart was deeply bruised and I thought I would just end up alone (not deserving the love of anyone, friends and romance).
I am now the Mom of two girls, came to the country I was meant to plant new roots in and I now am a Citizen of Canada. You could say I got all my heart wanted… and I could say that it is true. When deeply, I know it would be a lie. I am satisfied with what I have and I start every morning with a short ritual of deep Gratitude for the chance I have to start anew and go on and breathe.
I have so many dreams, so many things to discover, to try, to experience. and I hate when people tell me «you got all the time of your life» because I don’t feel like I do, I feel like life is very fragile. I want to share with the world what I am made of, discovering what it means everyday. Showing up for you. Showing up to tell the stories that will resonate with you, in my paintings.
So many dreams to bring to life. So many.
And now, in this new decade of my life… it is time. it is my time to shine to make YOU shine. To show you that feeling the feelings is okay and that we are not alone. Defining what being Nolwenn looks like.
So cheers to this new chapter, the one I decide to write. I won’t let life happen to me. I create it, one decision at a time. one step at a time.
This decade will be another life altering one, I can feel it already. Many changes to come, both on a personal level and regarding what I want my career to be and feel.
So many mysteries, which is too what makes life so good: we get to decide. Even when we feel defeated and lost. We get to decide if we let the Darkness win or if we want to fight back.
Have you ever felt like something in your life was about to change, for good, but you could not pinpoint what that something actually was ? Yes, this strange feeling of being on the verge of it with no idea if you will fall or raise, just that it was happening. That’s where I am at right now. Scary exciting !
