Your girl has just turned 30! What the heck……?!
I was feeling super relaxed about turning 30. I hear many people saying they dread it, feel apprehensive to turn 30, like they are getting old and reflect not achieving goals or living the life they hoped for.
I had dreams of seeing amazing places in this beautiful world, living in a different city one day, exploring and experiencing new cultures. I hoped to get married to my best friend and sometime settle back in our home town and build a home, living a coastal vibes kinda lifestyle, living the dream life that we wanted, dreamed and hoped for.
I remember planning my business out and my dreams when I was 19 approaching 20, planning how I would create a business that I would be able to one day be able to run full time, work for myself, build a team, create my own income in a creative role, taking photographs, writing, travelling for myself.
The week leading up to leaving my 20s behind and approaching my 30th – it was really a time of reflection for me, a new decade in my life and in a new decade starting in 2020.
I am so happy to be able to look back on my twenties and say they were amazing! And I/we achieved everything that we had hoped for. And now looking forward rather than approaching this new age in my life scared, fearful or apprehensive, I feel so much love and excitement. With my life, the people in it, confident in the person I am today, and still growing into that everyday. The experiences I have had the pleasure of having over the past 10 years have shaped who I am today, the good, the bad, the ugly. I am still learning, growing, changing and that won‘t change no matter what age I’m turning.
I am feeling an immense amount of pride in my work, ethics and journey in my career – leaving my corporate job to turn my business into my full time income – I worked so hard to build this to where it is today and you know what I am beyond excited for what the next 10 years has in store.
I truly feel this positive shift in my mind that 30 for me, is really is the start of the BEST decade ahead and I cannot wait.
I’d love to hear your take, have you turned 30, or had a big birthday that has you reflecting on your life and goals?
