30 Looks Good On Me And It’s The Year

I turned 30 back in September. I dreaded that milestone. Why? Because everyone makes such a big deal about it. It’s the official end of your childhood. You’re still allowed to screw up in your 20s because you’re barely an adult and still learning things constantly. Plus 30 just felt so old before I was here, but the reality of it is it’s not. Age isn’t anything but a number and I’ve never felt better. Sure my back hurts, but that’s nothing new.

Notebook gifted to me for my Birthday that contains my 30 at 30 list.

At the chance of sounding conceited, I have never looked better. Seriously check out the picture below. I did one of those things on Facebook and put these pictures side by side. The left is somewhere between 19-21ish and the right is from a few months ago. I don’t know what’s going on in the picture on the left, but talk about cringy. No, just no. 30 gave me my glow up.

My 19-21ish versus 30 pic. 30 suits me so much better.

As I turned 30 I was determined to make this my year. I wanted to improve myself as a person, mother, wife, and just be the best me I could be. In my attempt to do that I made a list of 30 goals I wanted to accomplish this year. The goals ranged from working on my business, being a better friend, mother, and wife, and mostly me working to be the best me I could be. They are literally the most random, yet motivating goals.

A few of my goals to accomplish this year.

I’m a very self motivated, goal oriented person. I thrive on having set goals in place to follow and meet. It helps me to accomplish things and do more than I ever thought I could. I know setting all these goals to accomplish seems ambitious and some even seem impossible, but I am so determined. Who does something like this? Someone like me that’s crazy enough to give it a go. It was meant to improve myself and have fun while I do it. Not all goals have to be all work and no play. Goals can be fun too.

All my notebooks, calendars, and to do lists to stay organized.

The goals I set were ones specific for me and things I’ve always wanted to do or accomplish. Honestly I’d forgotten about them until I found them in a notebook recently. But let’s be honest 2020 has been one heck of a year, accomplishing anything at this point is good. Now with only 2 months left, I will take my forgotten goal list and push myself harder than I’ve ever pushed. Accomplishing anything is better than accomplishing nothing. 30 will be my year. Stay tuned to hear how it goes. Update coming September 2020.

  1. Everything you said about the fear of turning 30 is me right now! I just turned 29 a few days ago and I’ve been doing some serious reflection on this decade. Good luck on your 30!
