Today I turn 30.
For a woman – it’s a big thing; for me? Not so much.
I feel I have achieved everything I possibly could have wanted to by the time I am 30. That may sound incredibly big headed but instead it’s a voice of contentment. For the first time I can look upon my life and think – yes, I’ve really been lucky. Lucky that I have healthy children and a wonderful husband. I’m surrounded by lovely family and friends and my life is comfortable.
Of course I would loved more than anything to have my dear dear Mom here with us. After all, she was the one doing all the hard work this time 30 years ago. I know wherever she is she will be incredibly proud.
30 years on this planet eh? My twenties have seen the most absolutely fantastic life changing moments which can never ever be topped but similarly I have experienced absolute devastation which I hope never to experience again.
One thing is for sure, when I go to bed tonight I’ll be grateful that I have such an ace life. I don’t always think that way but I think I’ve landed on my feet. So here is to my thirties… I wonder what it thrills and spills they will bring!
