So I turned 30 yesterday.
F and I went out to celebrate sans the boy, had a great relaxing time out. But all in all, it felt less monumental than I thought turning 30 would. Well, I did think of doing a big celebration with friends with a BBQ of sorts but I was too lazy to organize. Plus, I was a bit two minds about whether to do a big bash or to spend quiet time with F. I went with the latter since I was seriously craving couple-time (partly cos I was lazy too).
Somehow, I have been looking forward to turning 30 for a while. Though my gfs mostly are afraid of 'turning old', I was pretty excited. Nowadays, I feel comfortable being myself. I understand my own quirks and know my limits. I am not afraid of awkwardness when I meet new friends. Generally, I kind of accepted who I am. I don't feel as lost as to where i am going in life.
Definitely I am in a better place than I was in my 20s. I am really blessed to have a loving hubby and a cute son. And yes, the girlfriends too. Somehow, I end up with close friendship with each girl instead of sticking with big group of friends. Now these girls are all just a whatsapp message away. One for shopping-bags-shoes-talk, one for hubby and mil complains, one for parenting and another for random rubbish complains. Enough to keep my phone and fingers busy.
Though I am not the established career woman I thought I would be, having these fabulous friends and my loving family makes my life complete. I don't think this 30 year old me need anything more. My birthday wish this year is just to be happy, safe and healthy. Simple wish but it means a lot to me :)
Birthday present from my close girlies - they read my mind, these girls.
