Yesterday I celebrated my 30th birthday!
I absolutely love my birthday. I start telling people my birthday is approaching a few weeks before the big day. I always plan my own party and try to make the day feel really special. Also, my birthday usually becomes a birthday week and I carry on the celebration as long as possible.
This year was no different. However, when I told people it was my 30th birthday that was approaching, the response wasn’t that positive. I got a lot of, “It’s all downhill from here” or “Now you’re officially old.”
To be honest, I feel like my life just keeps getting better and better. I can’t imagine life going downhill from here! I’m quite happy leaving my 20’s behind. During most of my 20’s I felt insecure, I hated my body, I wasn’t very self-aware and I was unsure about my future. At 30, I feel confident, strong and fit, I’m excited about where my career could take me and I’m much more aware of my feelings and emotions.
