A Special Birthday | Turning 30

Sunday, 17 April 2016

Turning 30?! Don't care! Let's celebrate!

Today is my 30th birthday! I can't believe the day is here. I'm still processing it. But I'm feeling pretty excited actually.  I'm excited for this new chapter in my life.

I thought I'd get that 'OMG I'm not longer in my 20s' fear and freak out like everyone else. There is this thirtieth-birthday cliché of thinking that after this age your life is over.  We always imagine that we will be in a certain place and certain way when we reach certain age. It seems that when you're turning thirty, you'd have it so together and life would be all figured out. But not necessarily. I am not even close to where I thought I would be at 30. I'm far from having my life figured out. I understand I don't have all the answers and I'm ok with that. I personally still have things to learn and I'm still trying to find myself.  

There's so much stress surrounding the age of 30. You know those, 'things to do before turning 30' or 'You'll regret it if you haven't done these before 30' lists. I hate reading those type of things. They're really overwhelming, I'm more like 'do the things whenever you like or when you feel prepare'. You shouldn't spend your life worrying about checking off a list of goals.

Ten years ago, I would have never guessed that my life would be how it is now. Living in another country, far from my family and friends. But I don't see it as something negative. I have had the best time of my life. (Don't be afraid to move abroad!) I have lots of things to be grateful for and I feel blessed to have reached this milestone. Maybe I am not where I 'supposed to be' but I am where I want to be and where I'm meant to be; and I will keep following this path.  I love living new adventures and to think what my life will be in another ten years is something exciting.

Don't be afraid of getting older. You shouldn't be scared of turning 30. It's ok if you don't tick off all the boxes of your things-to-do-before-thirty list. Life still goes on. Enjoy it.
