When you start your 20’s you assume you will be young and carefree forever! Your favorite phrase was probably “by the time I’m 30, I would be..” And then, 30 comes along and you are shocked that you aren’t a celebrity or married to one (i had so many options back then), and your bank account isn’t an endless fountain of cash!
Last year when the clock hit 12 and it was officially June 12.. I was nothing close to being a celebrity and my bank account was almost empty.. Reality hit real hard!
I started to evaluate my job, my home, my achievements, lifestyle, friendships and my new favorite phrase became “I’m too old for this Sh**t!”…
For a while there I thought I haven’t achieved much being were I am today, an MBA holder, completely independent, and keeping a good job in corporate events while maintaining an almost fun lifestyle and that put me down most of the time.. But soon enough I realized that I spent too much time thinking of what I SHOULD HAVE done rather than what I can do next and I started checking out my bucket list like I SHOULD have done. I got the piercing and tattoo I always wanted, I traveled to London and watched a musical, I started my photoblog on Instagram and now this!
As I kick off 31, I’m more excited about what is coming than I ever was at my 20s because now I started to think of myself more and I became ready to pick up the pieces of my dramatic self who didn’t marry Justin Timberlake and focus on becoming a better version of myself so by 40 I would say “I did that”!
Are you hitting the big 30 soon? Chin up, the best is yet to come!
