Thoughts On Turning 30

June 21, 2011

Last Updated:

First World Problems Alert! Sometimes life gets busy and you wake up and realize you’re turning 30 in a few days. And then you think, “I thought I would have done more and seen more and experienced more and make more, and be altogether more ‘successful’ by now!”

And then someone near and dear jolts you out of your mild self-loathing and asks what you’ve been smoking and reminds you of all the lovely experiences and challenging accomplishments you’ve had in a short 30 years… I was privileged enough to be born in a country with an educational system that even allowed me to work my ass off in the first place, get my MBA, quit my job, travel around the world for a year, and buy a house by age 30. Life is good great brilliant! But most of all, I’ve been blessed with the most supportive, built-in best friend that a girl could ask for.

Happy Birthday to my BFF {and me}

    I have just discovered your blog, and approaching the big 3-0 myself, really appreciated your feelings, I have the same myself! Looking forward to reading through your archives, especially the travel parts – am on my own “travel” year (though far less organised than yours by the sound of it!) at present.

    Awwww, happy birthday to you too, my dearest. You’re the best friend a girl could ask for. As I always say, let’s grow old together. Lol…
