On turning 30…

First, thank you, thank you, thank you, everyone for all the birthday wishes! I had a wonderful day.

Yes, like many of you said, age is just a number but I think 30 is one of those milestone birthdays. Three decades is quite a substantial bit of time to have spent in this world.

I’m actually not in the “its all downhill from here frame of mind,” I think the prospect of turning 30 was more daunting than the actual event. Upon reflection, it’s occurred to me that I’m really looking forward to my 30s. I’m more confident about who I am and what I am about than at any other stage in my life, and this has allowed me to make decisions that might appear crazy to others but make sense to me (basically, I’m learning how to be the boss of me and loving it). Overall, I’m where I wanted to be at this stage in my life. Plus I’m still haven’t lost my sense of idealism, or become jaded. Then there’s this.

One of the things I am struggling with is what next as far as a “grand” focus professionally (or maybe it’s more like what’s my new trajectory given the many things that I have my hands in), my 20s were dominated with the goal of getting into an excellent law school then making it in law school and getting a dream job. If I’d ended up at a law firm, I’d probably be focused on making partner. Now, I’m not sure what’s next over the long-term and that’s new territory for me….

AOB: For those who’ve asked, I will try and blog more regularly.

  • The BIG 3 – 0 huh???

    Happy B-lated Birthday KP and I hope you have many more to come. 😉

    It is just a number and as long as you are enjoying life to the full, what has age got to do with it.

    Stay blessed girl!

  • I remember 28 as one of the best years of my life, so I know that it is a good time of life.

    Know what you mean about a ‘grand focus’, too … I seem to need them too. So much so that ‘Don’t ask little of me, you might get it’ has become one of my favourite sayings. In fact, it is the topic of today’s blog…


  • I recently heard the saying; “We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, but borrow it from our children”. It seems as if you are already living and caring for the generation to come. Since you do have the rest of your professional life (what, 30 or 40 years) to make numerous professional changes, tread gently; be kind to your inner spirit. You’ll want to have the energy and interest to take a few radical changes along the way.

    I know what you mean with regards to finding a “grand focus.” This year I decided that my grand focus would be to invest in property and it turns out by the end of the year I will be in a position to do that. Each b’day brings with it a new set of goals.

  • Happy Birthday!!
