Turning 30 today

Dear, Diary

Some say 30 is the new 20. Others say 30 is when you start living your best life.
Here I am, just hitting the BIG 3 as the clock strikes 12 tonight and trying to figure what has changed and what will change..
I am soon entering a brand new phase of my life, taking on a new “MOM-role” that will be completely foreign to me. I am trekking on new ground with my businesses and exploring all the new possibilities and ideas that come my way with an invincible and positive mindset.
I am asking for help when I need it, and not feeling bad about it at all. 
I don’t think turning 30 is actually much of a turning point but this year, and very much lately, I have been feeling a lot more confident and self-assured than ever before.
I look myself in the mirror on some days when I look like absolute crap, then make a quick decision to either doll up or go bare, and I’m completely ok with whatever I decide. Nobody’s to judge anyway. 
I don’t beat myself up over mini failures, setbacks or things that don’t go my way. I move on fast, I’m quick to forgive and I let go of things very easily.
I take pride and pleasure in building my home like the way I build my brand and I find joy as much joy in doing house hold chores as I do in creating content.
I don’t get affected by what other people say or think. I am not influenced by how I should act or behave based on what everyone else expects of me. I set my own benchmark. I’ve come to realise that everything is temporary and shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
I’ve learnt that the world owes me nothing and I don’t owe the world anything either.
My heart is always centred around God and I know He’s got my back no matter what. 

Another year older, another year of endless blessings, opportunities and good things.

Thank you for journeying with me always!
