Yesterday, I turned 31 and I am not wasting another day worried about getting older. I never had a fear of turning 30, or so I thought. A little more than two years ago, I was begging to be let into the third tier, desperate to leave behind the immaturity, self-doubt and growing pains that made up most of my twenties.
Then I hit 30 last year and I suddenly began to have mixed feelings. Thirty just sounds so old but truth is, I don't feel old. Matter of fact, I don't even feel grown. Partially because I still don't have solid plans on a career BUT I can see my destination and most importantly, I am optimistic about the future.
What I've discovered in my first year of fabulous thirties is, I was able to let go of all the expectations I had about my life and just live it.
So, in honor of my thirties, I made a note of just a few things I learned the past
- Enjoy being alone. You can't expect anyone else to enjoy your company if you don't.
- Smile. It's a curve that sets everything straight!
