Well, I’m officially 30! Hopefully back a little wiser, not wider 🙊 It’s just been 4 days since my birthday passed - and I feel no different than I did the week before.
I had an amazing time celebrating it over 4 days with multiple surprises - but I swear, age is catching up with me because I was quite tired by the end of it. #firstworldproblems #oldageproblems Was lucky enough to spend time with family, my bestie, and a whole bunch of close friends. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the time :)
2 weeks ago, when we were having dinner gathering at my good friend Cheryl’s place, one of my younger friends posed a question to us: ‘Seriously, how does it feel to turn 30? Is it scary?’
I thought for a moment and replied: ‘In all honesty, 30 is really just a number to me. I’m very sure I won’t feel any different than I am feeling right now! I’m actually really excited! To me, turning 30 is the start of true adulthood.’
Personally, I’m in better place than I was 10 years ago, when I was turning 20. Back then, I was in the midst of university, smoking, eating and drinking my life away. I wasn’t interested in what I was studying, and just wanted to finish up the week so I could continue to party over the weekend. I spent SO much money on alcohol, excess clothes and the latest electronic gadgets without a second thought.
Now, I’m more sensible and am incredibly intentional with everything I do. I’m financially able, holding a steady job in an awesome company. I’m in a much healthier and fitter state, stronger physically, mentally and emotionally. I know what I want in life - and am already taking steps towards attaining my personal and professional goals, so that I can eventually attain financial freedom, and enjoy life to the fullest. I have a bunch of friends, an incredible best friend, and family whom I love and treasure. People who I know have my back and will support me through all my endeavours. Really, that’s all I need to be truly happy.
With all these experiences behind my belt, I’m much better equipped to take on life, so I’m definitely ready to take whatever life throws at me. BRING IT ON, LIFE!
Till next week!
