Could be the fact that I will be turning 30 in 6 days time, or maybe it's that I'm finally winding down after one busy week. Either way, I'm sipping my tea and looking back on to what I've been up to this past year. I don't know about you but each year, days before my birthday, I find myself weighing what I would have learnt, achieved and missed out on to. And this year, this general feeling is turning out to be even more persistent - I'm guessing it's all due to the big THIRTY!
Truth be told, I'm still a bit bummed and unsure about this 30 thing. I should be grateful and I am, but thirty?! OUCH!! I was having a look at an online questionnaire I received yesterday. The demographics gave the following choices:
- 15 - 19 years
- 20 - 25 years
- 25 - 29 years
- 30 - 39 years
and so on.
30 to 39 years of age as the age bracket, the one I will be belonging to in 6 days? What the heck?! Sounded painful so I went to reapply a layer of lip gloss to kind of boost my confidence and found a white hair staring back at me from the mirror. 'Fix an appointment with the hairdresser - you need toner!' is what I scribbled on my notepad. Do I sound overemotional to you?! Blame the 30s!!
Joking aside, I'm HAPPY! I may be turning 30 and my body may be showing signs that it's definitely not getting any younger, but I do see myself as a fresh breed. Just like that film goes, I'd like me to be 'Thirty, Flirty and Thriving' this coming year :D Yep, a girl has got to do what she's got to do, especially when she's three decades old!
