Just like that, we turn 30.
I woke up this morning with a feeling of excitement. 30. It has a nice ring to it. Everyone has been asking me how I feel. Not very different from 29 given that I have been feeling like I’m in my thirties for a while now.
But it’s still nice. Entering the next decade. Unlike moving from 19 to 20, this change from 29 to 30 seems promising. I have high hopes for myself. Mainly to continue to develop personally and grow. To live and not just exist.
It was meant to be a low-key day. Work and then dinner with my friend J. Except when I turned up to the restaurant, there was J, her boyfriend R, C and her husband S, and then N rocked up a few minutes after me. My uni friends. Part of my family here. Who surprised me. On my 30th. I got home about an hour and a bit ago. Feeling wonderful. To know that I am loved. My friends at work too have been lovely with their wishes so apt. And then there’s the wishes from those who are across the world — via phone or text or email or Whatsapp or Facebook. It all means a lot to me.
30 is going to be amazing.
I just know it!
Until next time,
