Thoughts on Thirty

September 29, 2016

Thirty.

It’s hard to believe that I’ve made it through three decades of life already. Most days I still feel like I’m 20, except that I’m a parent to an almost-four-year-old, I just renewed my mortgage, and discuss things like mutual funds and power of attorneys. What?!

I can’t say that life is exactly as I expected it to be at this age. When I was young I pictured myself living the typical life, going to college, starting a career, getting married and starting a family. My life path took me in a different direction, though, I haven’t figured out what I want to do when I grow up yet and I’m still single, but now with a mini-sidekick to adventure with. I have experienced home ownership and travelled to some pretty cool places. I have any amazing tribe of friends spread out across the province and have had some amazing experiences and opportunities along the way. I’d say that life so far, although there’ve been bumps, has been pretty good so far.

A lot of my friends are already in their thirties and they’ve made me excited for this next decade of life. I haven’t been dreading the end of my twenties, instead, I’ve been anticipating what my thirties hold for me. I have a feeling that my best years are yet to come.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY you beautiful soul. I love being in my 30s. I’m so much cooler, wiser and funnier than I was at 20. I feel like our twenties are such a confusing time too, and we often don’t know what we want and end up chasing a case of the shoulds.

    Happy birthday! I’m thirty as well and I totally know what you mean about still feeling like I’m closer to twenty (other than the terrible hangovers ;). How did we get here?? I hope you have a wonderful day today and get to do some fun celebrating!

    happy birthday! hope you had fun celebrating in Waterton earlier this week.
    admittedly, my 30s have been a lot harder – but I think that’s in part due to strange circumstances and the feeling that my life is supposed to feel more settled instead of more confusing. it’s easier to shake off things that don’t really matter though. and really, the fact I get carded all the time is just proof 32 is a number and doesn’t actually mean anything.

    enjoy today with your littlest sidekick.

      Girl, age is just the number of trips we’ve made around the sun and as long as we’re still on that journey we’re doing pretty good.

    Happy Birthday, my lovely friend!! As your older and wiser wide (haha! ;)), I love being in my 30s. It’s like being in your 30s makes it cool to love and enjoy dorky things and you don’t give a shit about what other people think. I think your 30s are going to be your best years yet and I’m so happy I get to call you a friend xoxo
