Ah, my 20s. A time of extreme indulgence and picking myself up from my boot straps. I found almost every emotion you can overturn. It took forever, but I made it through. I loved it.
Ah, my 30s........... wait...... I'm already 31? Seriously..... I feel like I just turned 30. It still feels like my 31st birthday came and went in the blink of an eye. Is this what it's like to be in your 30s? Time goes by so quickly you don't have a moment to think? Tetris pieces come at you without the time to adjust them? ACK!
Really though. My 30s so far have been about reinvention and discovery. Being 31 has been a bit rough, considering I'm starting from scratch with my career and life goals. How does one figure out what to do next in their 30s, aren't we supposed to have it all together already? I suppose 31 is staring me in the face whether I want it to or not. It's here, and I really just need to embrace it.
"What day is it?"
"It's 2.5 months into year #31."
"My favorite day."
This is how I see 31. A bit freaky, but definitely worth embracing and tackling like a Tetris pro. After all, I've still got a couple of years until I want children, and I'm old enough to not give a shit about where the party is, and old enough to eat ice cream for dinner if I want to. I'm right in the middle, where I can just sit back, relax, and figure out my life deets.
Cheers to being 31!
