Omg, i’m turning 30 today!
Today is my birthday. I’m 30 years old. I confess I’m still getting used to the idea – what the hell, 30? – but it feels good. With the exception of one or other white hair (promptly plucked), and a greater difficulty in losing weight (no way one can spend a week eating junk food), I still not feeling too old. In fact, I feel good in my own skin.
I do not care very much if I don’t have children yet – for now, I do not need them – a marriage with signed paper – I’m terrible with papers – or all the other things I was supposed to be and have at the age of 30. Everything in life has a time and this time is not the same for everyone.
Of course, I'm far from having everything I want (aren’t we all?), But if there is anything that age brought me it was the ability to be thankful for everything I have.
I prefer to think about everything that I’ve achieved so far: the love of my life, a work that, despite demanding a lot from me, makes me thank every day for having had the courage to give up my job in Law to fight for it, a comfortable house, friends who really love me, the sweetest cat in the world, a unique father and a wonderful family.
Of course, I’m far from having everything I want (aren’t we all?), But if there is anything that age brought me it was the ability to be thankful for everything I have. And, the serenity of accepting reality as it is, without illusions or artifice.
So I’d say turning 30 is good. Every phase of life has its magic, and the best part is that making a birthday means that we are here to live them all. For now, I want to linger in 30 and curl up in its hug. Next year will see how it was.
