Wow! 2017 hey? I can only imagine what this year is going hold – all good things I hope.
This week marks more than just a new year for me; I suspect is also the beginning of adulthood. This week I turn 30! I am not quite sure how that happened as I am pretty confident I only just turned 25, but that is a whole other can of worms.
It’s happening – I’m turning 30!
So the big ‘30’! I don’t really know why everyone makes out like turning 30 is the peak of life and that it only goes downhill from here. That grey hair is imminent and my face will suddenly droop with wrinkles but I am feeling more confident in myself, inside and out than I ever have. I am definitely not in peak physical condition but I had a turning point the other day when we went to the beach as a family. I wore a bikini without a cover and I honestly didn’t care. I was way more focused on having a great time with my husband and kids, and I think because I let go of my angst, I had the time of my life.
While I have no doubt that yes the grey hair will come, I also have to question – does turning 30 mean that I have to grow up? Am I expected to have all the answers? I’m very indecisive at the best of times so I don’t think this will work for me. Is 30 the turning point when you suddenly know what you want to be when you grow up? Because if that’s the case, I’m fucked! I have no idea.
While I am a mum to four beautiful (and sometimes feral) children, I don’t feel like I am an adult. I feel I am an imposter playing the part of a sensible, decision making and responsible person. Is it possible to be all the above and carefree at the same time? Because I am a very go with the flow person and this imposter is a risk assessor!
What do I expect from my 30’s?
Moving forward, into my 30’s I have no idea what to expect. I love that life throws opportunities at me in the most random ways and don’t want that to change. I want to travel more so hopefully we are able to plan out a few epic trips and come home with some great stories.
I want to do more myself. I have spent the past ten years putting everyone else first and putting experiences on the backburner due to lack of time or other family and work commitments. I will no longer feel guilty for wanting to try something new. I have a list so long full of things I want to try and I haven’t even started. Maybe I should start a 31 before 31 list. Skydiving, stand up paddle boarding, indoor rockclimbing, high tea and so much more!
I don’t know whether it has anything to do with turning 30 or if I am just at that stage in my life but – this year is about me!
