Thankful for 30

Thankful for 30

This blog post is long overdue, but the matter of my birthday landing in between moving apartments meant I had to (unfortunately) put the blog at a bit of halt.

As some of you may know, I recently turned 30 and quite frankly, I’m still in a bit of a shock to think I’m 30–thiiiirrrteeeee!! To be honest, when I was younger I pictured 30 to be an age at which I would have all my shit together. I’d be married with kids, excelling in a cool fashion career, and not sure what else. And not that I’m not happy with what I have and haven’t accomplished, but now that I think of it, I wonder why is it that we have to have all these expectations of what a woman has to have done by the time she's 30...or really any age?

Do we really need to abide by those the-ten-things-you-must-do-by-the-age-of-30 type of articles? Or "The Places You Must Tavel Before the Age of 30?" What happens after 30 that I can’t visit these places? What am I supposed to act like now that I’m 30? Is this what a thirty-year-old does on a weekend? Is this how a thirty-year-old is supposed to dress?

As you can see, so many questions. But instead of worrying about the nonsense that comes with getting older, I decided I would instead focus on what I’m thankful for now that I’ve hit the big 3-0.

P.S. By no means are these in any order of significance.
