At first I thought it was better to celebrate bidding farewell to my 20s rather than welcoming in the big 3-0. But when one actually thinks about it, and I am guessing there are lots of people out there who’d agree our 20s actually turn out to be quite a roller coaster.
Looking back I achieved a lot graduated twice, worked my way through a lot of jobs, I traveled A LOT (I filled up my passport with stamps) and eventually moved my life from one side of the world to the other. I fell in love for the first time in my 20s (and had my heart broken for the first time too). Then figured that the time is a great healer and life really does go on. I made lots of new friends. I learnt that not everyone is meant to be in your life forever but that doesn’t mean that the encounter was worthless. Everyone teaches us something. But there are some constants that will remain in your world no matter what the decade. They are called family (not necessarily always the biological sort). I partied hard but also realised the importance of a healthy lifestyle. It’s all about balance.
I have no idea what my 30s have in store but I am hoping that it’ll be a decade of consolidation where I become more sure of myself and what I want out of this crazy thing called life. And I am certainly not at all ready to give up on the adventures.
