So today is my birthday and I am 30……I’m not quite sure how I feel about being 30 at this very moment although I have received so many positive comments on twitter this week! I’ve been told that your life really does begin at 30, you have more confidence in your beliefs and have a better idea of who you are and the direction you want to take with life. If this is true then I’m hoping my 30’s will bring me more happiness than my 20’s. I thought I may wake up this morning and say ‘wow I know who I am and what I’m meant to be doing’ – miracles can happen!

All joking aside, the reason my 20’s have ‘not been what I expected’ is because of my own personal high expectations and the pressure I put on myself to achieve all of my life goals before I’m 30! I’ve now realised that this is not the way to live – we must choose to live in the now and saviour the special moments that create our memories. After all, it’s these memories and experiences that make us who we are and shape our future and the decisions we make.

So thanks 20’s – It has been emotional to say the least and as for my 30’s…………….well bring it on I say!

Here is my 30 before 30.. As you see high expectations is an understatement!

Reading through this list has made me realise that all these hopes and dreams don’t have to be achieved all at once or within a set time frame. Life is a journey, not a destination!! It’s also made me appreciate how much I have achieved so far so maybe being 30 isn’t going to be so bad after all…..
