This blog is more of a celebration of the future and maturity than Swan Song to my second decade of life. Some crazy things happened to me leading up to turning 30, including the devastating ending of my engagement to the love of my life. I’m talking about it all. Turning 30 doesn’t have to be scary and it certainly does not have to be a hard deadline for major life events (marriage, children, homeownership, six-figure income). Turning 30 may not even involve me having some divine revelation or a greater insight on life, like some people swear it’s going to be. Let’s deconstruct the myths of 30. Let’s laugh and talk about what turning 30 really means: what we’re willing (and glad) to leave behind in our 20s and the people we look forward to growing into being beyond the big 3-0.
