30

30

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,

Cheers!!!

      Thanks Vishal! Haha…not sure about the new 18…I wasn’t the biggest fan of 18 😛 I know some of my friends were freaked out last year on turning 30 and couldn’t even say the number. Like you, I am too busy enjoying life and feel like I’m only just growing and developing and figuring myself out. So bring on the 30s I say! 😀

    Hey PB! Happy Birthday! I wouldn’t say 30 is the new 20 or something. 30 is 30. Just another number – adding years to your life – adding more experience 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful year ahead.
