So today I turn 30.
It’s crazy to even think about, really. I mean obviously it was inevitable, but the fact that it is here is pretty insane. I certainly don’t feel 30, although, to be honest, I wish I did.
30 has never been a scary age for me, in fact I’ve been excited to be 30 for probably the past two years, but this year it was constantly on my mind and I think it definitely affected me. I was never someone who had to (or even wanted to) be married with kids at this point, but I must have had some idea in my head of where I wanted to be, because I don’t feel like I’m quite there.
I’m assuming this has more to do on the professional end of things, career wise, I guess. I’ve never had any idea of what I wanted to be “when I grow up” and I think turning 30 and still not knowing was kind of a hard pill to swallow.
Like I said, this thought has been with me all year and within the past couple of months, I’ve been moving past it. I’m sure nothing will really change and I am more than happy to leave my 20’s in the past.
They were certainly good years, especially the last half, but like I said, I have always looked forward to turning 30, so while it’s a bit of a shock, I am more than ready for this next phase of life.
