Turning 30


So here we are, the week I turn 30. On Thursday I shall say goodbye to my 20s and a big hello to my 30s.

Never one for being that fussed about my age turning 30 and the feelings that have come with it have surprised me. For the first time ever I feel confident. Confident in myself, the way I look and most importantly that I can keep fighting my anxiety and winning.

This may be a total coincidence that this has happened at the same time I am turning 30 but I think the two may be linked. You go through so many changes in your 20s. I went to university, got my first ‘proper’ job and moved into my own flat, then moved in with a boy, got married, bought a house and had a baby. Ten years may be a long time but that is a lot to fit in! My 20s have been a non stop rollercoaster of emotions. From learning how to live without my Mum looking after me to learning how to be a Mum myself. There have been so many changes. Your 20s are the time where you sort of work out the type of person you are, the type of person you want to be and the time when you learn to accept yourself and others around you. You learn about the sort of people you want around you and find your true friends. You learn how to deal with things as a grown up and believe me, make a few mistakes along the way.


20s you have been amazing.

30s come and get me. I still have a lot of battles to fight; my anxiety and being brave enough to think about having a second baby but with everything I have learnt in my 20s I am confident I will get there with probably a few blips a long the way.

I didn’t have any big celebrations for my previous milestone birthdays; my 18th and 21st birthdays were quiet affairs but my 30s hold a week long celebration in store. From afternoon tea with my girl friends to a Safari Park visit with my little family to a night away (first night I have ever left Little Man) with G. I can’t wait to share all my celebrations with you so head over to my Instagram where I will be uploading pictures and look out for a blog post very soon.

As I am having a week with my nearest and dearest this is me signing off for a week. Normal blogging services will be resumed next Monday

30s I am coming for you!

    Just read this because I’m turning 30 later this year! Looking back at all the changes that happen in your 20s (my list is very similar to yours, including the anxiety!), is quite encouraging. All things considered, I guess doing pretty well. Thank you for the confidence boost, from a usually under confident 29yr old! I hope life on ‘the other side’ of the birthday celebrations is treating you well!
