When I turned 30 I was kinda cool about it, it didn’t bother me at all. It’s just a number, right? But on the other hand I was sort of expecting a big shift in my life, a positive change that would improve my being in general, or at least stop cashiers asking for my ID every time I went to buy a bottle of wine! Funny story – once a cashier lady asked for my ID and when she saw my date of birth her reaction was: Oh Jeysus! I’m sorry… Haha Anyway…going back to the point nothing spectacular happened when I turned 30 and there wasn’t a magical wand that would make my life like on a magazine cover, fortunately or unfortunately for some.
Well, let’s say it takes a bit of an effort to make your life changed for the better. And I mean relationships, personal development, family circumstances, you name it! I always say that if you want to change anything in your life, start from yourself! And so I did.
But before I move on I want to share 26 reasons that I found on Buzz Feed (2017) why life in your 30s is infinitely better than life in your 20s:
1. At 30, you’ll have bid farewell to (almost) all of those insecurities about your body.
2. Which is why you will do things to consciously look and feel your best.
3. Maybe you won’t party as hard as you did before.
4. And you will realize that staying at home doesn’t make you a “loser”. 5. Your personal confidence will soar.
6. You will be able to criticize ‘the youth with confidence…
7. But nostalgia also becomes an important part of your life…
8. Your trips are more frequent and way better.
9. You dress better.
10. You’re so over drama…? 11. Your house looks a lot lie a Pinterest board.
12. You don’t find household chores quite so tedious anymore.
13. You have fewer and better friends.
14. You don’t have to live with roommates.
15. You are much more sexy, therefore... Link to full story in my bio
Nerd alarm part 2:
Let the Hunt begin.
When repairing old vintage dresses, or sewing from old vintage patterns, I’m always searching for original trimnings . Buttons, belt buckles & laces are high on my list. These are 1930s bakelite belt buckles from France. I’m so in love with them. #1930s#30s#beltbuckle#vintage#sewingvintage#1930sdress
I'm a young person starting to grow old. My twenties are behind me, and I greeted my thirties a couple of years ago. And I couldn't be more relieved. According to American culture, I'm supposed to fear old age--the wrinkles, the responsibilities, and that whole settling down thing. We glorify youth and attempt to emulate it endlessly. Being thirty is the beginning of being uncool, and that's the last thing I'm supposed to be.
So why the relief? It's because it's finally unattainable. I'm covered in stretched marks, I change countless dirty diapers on the daily, and those tired raccoon eyes aren't going anywhere. And yet in exchange I feel so centered.
While I've been given a whole new set of impossible standards to judge myself and others by (motherhood is ruthless), I can at least put the ones from my twenties to rest. I don't need to know about every cool new thing, I don't need to look like the girls on the silver screen, and I don't need to be endlessly charismatic. I finally feel comfortable in my own skin. My twenties have laid the foundation for what I have now--a family, a home, and an artistic fire that just keeps building. And I just feel...confident. I may not be cool any more, but I love the things I love and I know why I love them. I'll happily welcome all this aging if it means I'm at last grounded.
In my twenties my artist's voice faltered, coughed, and stammered. I knew I loved the process of cutting paper, but I didn't know what it meant for my art. Now I know the purpose of each tiny cut out shape. Art will continue to be full of uncertainty and questioning because that's its nature, but I know what to do next, and I know why I'm doing it. I've finally developed enough visual tools to say all those things deep inside me.
I'm done chasing all the things that were always meant to leave. Instead I want to develop the ones that will remain for all the coming years as I grow old.
