you’ll be 30 tomorrow, did we ever think this day would come around, no. seriously perhaps we should have started on the anti wrinkle/more sunscreen regime earlier, or maybe like we should have started it full stop.
yesterday you had a little tear filled hour or so in your hotel room in Kyoto. but you are okay now, and you will be, and you know that, and you’ve kind of known it all along.
so i’ll leave you with some things to remember of from your twenties, which were awesome and a bit crap all at the same time.
running your first marathon
moving to new zealand
learning about finances
going to japan to celebrate turning 30
falling in love
attempting again to learn french
finally wearing colours
wearing your hair out
making awesome friends
learning to make pancakes
attending cocktail classes
watching the entire series of madmen thus far after the breakup
standing up for yourself
singing karaoke in Tokyo
going to see a psychologist and actually working on stuff, rather than bottling it up
your on/off love affair with weight watchers
realising your not at all bad, and kind of cool, in a nerdy yet rather awesome way
so much has led up to this day, one you really did think you’d never make, and in saying that make sure your thirties and beyond are for things you want to do, with the people you want, in the places you dream of, remember to give back often, and don’t say sorry for anything, unless you are being a bit of a dick.
above all have fun, do what makes you happy, and be the best you can be.
