THE BIG 3-0. How did this happen? Does this mean I am officially an adult? When I was younger I used to think by 30 I want to be married and have kids and now I’m like … wait 30 isn’t really that old. Why did I think by a certain age meant certain things were supposed to happen?
An age really truly is just a number and I think society sets expectations for us to feel like we need to have something by a certain age or we should be something at this or that age – and I think that isn’t really fair or true. It isn’t fair to pressure ourselves to feel like by this age this and that should be happening in my life because I think whats meant to be will be and theres no time limit on the things you want to achieve.
I would say for where I am in my life, personally and professionally, I am exactly where I would want to be and have even exceeded my expectations for what I wanted to achieve by this age. I set a personal goal for myself right after I graduated college and achieved it this year and that was a big milestone for me.
The most memorable part about wrapping up my 20s (omg what) is that I got to share it with YOU. My readers, followers, subscribers – my online friends. Being able to share my life with you, even via the internet, has brought me so much joy and fulfillment. I wake up everyday thinking of what content I can create, what pictures to share or videos to film so that you have new posts from me all the time. Meeting you in person or when you slide into my DMs is a constant reminder of how lucky I am that I’ve got to grow up with you through Life With Me.
As I turn 30, I’m so excited to share the next chapter of my life with you. I mean I don’t know if 30s is that different than 20s but if it is, I’ll be telling you about it here.
Thank you so much for giving me the best birthday gift I could ask for – your love and support for me mean so much and I am forever grateful to share with you!
