Thoughts on 30

I entered a new decade yesterday and I’ve been more emotional about it than expected. Don’t get me wrong, it has nothing to do with getting older or now being in my 30’s. In fact I’ve looked forward to this day for a long time.

My emotions have come from feeling so incredible blessed for this beautiful life I have. It’s now without its challenges and hardships, but overall it’s pretty great. I couldn’t help but cry a little when thinking about how lucky I am to have another year with the people I love.

High school and college were not my “glory years” and I never expected them to be. Growing up I always looked forward to my 30s and felt that decade would be some of my most treasured years. And to be honest life right now is better than I could have ever imagined when I was a kid.

We live in a world that getting older, especially for women, is seen as a bad thing. We are made to believe that we lose value the older we get. But truthfully I have loved getting older. I know 30 is still very young, hopefully I have decades ahead of me. I look forward to each of them along with the experiences, memories and lessons.

Embrace getting older. Enjoy each new year. Dreading it won’t do you any good. Getting older is a gift, so find the joy in it. ♥️
