A Decade in a Nutshell

Saturday, March 6, 2021

Today marks my final day in my 20s. 
Yessss, gonna be welcoming my 30 tomorrow!

I remember when I was younger and telling myself  I’ll never be one of those people who make a big deal stressing out when they turn 30. But for the past few days as my birthday's looming around the corner, I don’t know why I’m bothered by the thought of entering a new phase of adulthood. Scary? Kinda. Somehow it feels like a milestone I’m just not ready to acknowledge. Or a goodbye forever to my youth.

Yup I know,  age is just a number, but sometimes I feel it’s a number that is representing to me how much I’ve fallen short of who I thought I’d be. Don't get me wrong, I am absolutely loving my life right now. My family, friends (mostly the same throughout my 20s!), my home sweet home and my job. It's just that some days it seems like there's always room for improvement. Or something greater.

But I digress. The point of today's post is to look back at the past decade and celebrate the highlights of every year. I must say it’s been a great 10 years. I have grown in every way possible this past decade 🤍
