Recently I celebrated my 30th.
While over the years I never really paid attention to which year I m getting into but Boy!!! this one felt like a bullet. It took 30 years while living with yourself to understand how to thrive in spite of the world being a real bastard.
Over all these years, I finally able to understand my skin type (biggest question to follow during the teens), my body shape and more importantly myself as a human being. You know how you understand what suits you better and how advertisements can no longer fool you because you know yourself better than anyone else.
It takes a village to raise the inner child within you so that you could finally understand what is the difference between Oats and OatMeal.
I remember writing Myself essays in School or while introducing myself to my parent colleagues and when Bouncy Uncles and Sari-Clad aunties ask you “So Beta What are your Hobbies” and I was like running my mind with flashing speed questioning myself deep inside “What the hell are my Hobbies!!! Man”. At that time I used to say like Ummm Aunty Watching television ??? While after college this same question continues to haunt me with different angles taken up in Job Interviews like What are your Strengths?? and Again I was in the same spot..asking myself C’mon gal you can do this. What is my Strength? Pat comes the reply in my head I am a Sleeping beauty #dontjudge but Hard Working and Team Player is what best suits to the Resume
It also amazes me how you don’t see any change in your behavior but the world around you, never takes it easy on you. Things which you were doing casually up until now are suddenly being used to judge you coz you are a “GROWN UP” now.
While I still have my goals to be achieved and plans to be made but right now am enjoying myself so cheers to the thirties…and wonderful lessons continue.
Go Ahead share with me how you felt when 30’s hit you. Any bits of advice you want to give to me #LookingForward
Cheers to Thirties!!!!
