Looking Forward To 30

In less than 30 days, I will be 30 years old.

A lot of people have asked me how I feel about it, and my answer is always the same – excited.

I’m genuinely excited for my 30s. Everyone says that your 30s are so much better than your 20s, and my 20s were pretty awesome. I look back & see how much I’ve grown & learned. I think about how I was such a mess in my early 20s, even though I thought I was fabulous. It hasn’t all been roses, but I look back with fondness. Most of all, I’m happy that I’m not the same person that I was when I was 21, or even 25.

My life is not where I expected it to be at 30. I’m single – very single, not even in a relationship. I’m still stuck at the same job. The business is going at a glacial pace. Some days I’m stressed & upset & tired beyond belief…but I feel good. Overall I’m happy. I enjoy my life, even the not-so bright spots that get me down. I could use more yoga & meditation, but I feel hopeful & optimistic for what the future holds for me.

I’m in the process of completing the 31 Day Reset for the 2nd time. I realized today that while I made a few changes after my first Reset cycle in 2010, I haven’t made as many as I wanted. I looked at my lifemap from 2010 & realized I hadn’t made much headway towards many of those goals. I’ll also be working on my Things I Want To Do In My 30s list.

So looking forward to my birthday & a new phase in my life.

  • i’m a little more than halfway through my 30th year on this earth and we’ve had similar experiences. i’m also not quite where i thought i would be but i’ve been beyond blessed so i wont’ complain. 30’s are great so far. you’ll enjoy it. happy early birthday.
