It seems that turning 30 has become a “thing” – you enter in to your 30s, leaving your 20s behind, and it seems like it’s this hurdle, this big age, this scary moment, but does it have to be?
I keep thinking, why is this such a big deal? Why is this whole “turning 30” thing such a big moment? I think it’s because your 20s feel like this roller coaster of ups, downs, growth moments and serious self discovery. There’s been failed and fostered relationships, emotional highs, learnings, confusion and a wonderful abundance.
I think about my personal, interpersonal, professional, spiritual [you name it] goals, desires, manifestations. It feels exciting to turn the page to something new.
As I reflect on my 29 years of life, I think about what I want to leave behind, and the lessons I want to take with me.
I leave behind self doubt. I bring with me the self love & deserve and have fostered these last 29 years
I leave behind toxic relationships. I take with me the beautiful friendships that have supported me & grown
I leave behind not feeling good enough. I take with me “I am enough”
I leave behind feeling the “shoulds”. I take with me knowing i am exactly where I am meant to be
I leave behind saying yes to things that don’t serve me. I take with me the ability to say no
I let go of people pleasing. I take with me the ability to say no
I leave behind valuing others opinions over my own. I ake with me the acknowledgement of others opinions, but knowing mine is as important, if not more
I leave behind the idea of perfection [hello fellow virgos]. I scoop up the idea of playfulness
I leave behind imposter syndrome. I take with me the knowledge we are all individually unique
