I am thirty and it’s fine.

So sometime within this month I turned thirty (yippe) to be honest I never gave it any thought until a few days to the date. I remember sitting with a new acquaintance who coincidentally turned thirty as well in July, at the end of the visit we both agreed that the number thirty seemed like a huge milestone and some how makes you feel like you haven’t done much with your life.

Today, however I read a post here that echoed to a large extent the sentiments shared by myself and my new acquaintance. Turning thirty means different things to different people. For some it is something to be happy about, for others something to be embarrassed about: something to celebrate with hopes of a better future or something to sit and moan about.

Personally I have decided it’s something to celebrate and move on from.

Armed with these principles, I hope to make the next decade even more fabulous:

  • To do something productive with each day I get: engaging my mind in positive activities. To always remember that some days being productive might simply mean staying hopeful and not everything will play an obvious role in the bigger picture, it might just be for today so enjoy it.
  • To never compare the realities of my life to the silver lining posts of other peoples lives on social media: actually to not compare my life at all.
  • Never let anyone/any thought live rent free in your heart, head or mind.

With a dash of grace and sprinkling of healthy mental attitude the future can only get better.

Did some DIY baking and went off to volunteer at a health fair: boring, but on point with my principles. Love to hear what you did on your thirtieth birthday or what you  plan to  do?

    As one approaching 30, I had to read this and ‘take dressing.’
    I have read two posts today about turning 30, and both talked about how special/challenging/tough/inadequate 30 us. I guess I will find out in a few years though.

    However, I will be starting a project soon that I might need your help.
    PS: You will find it interesting. It has to do with being 30.
