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.
