33 today (which has apparently shocked a few of people based on some entertaining conversations 😂) 🎈I can honestly say my 30s so far have been better than my 20s in so many ways. Don’t get me wrong my 20s were a shitload of fun 😂 but I had always been told that “life was downhill after 30” and had so much dread around that age. Society had me convinced I was supposed to have it all figured out by then & I was panicked that I didn’t.
Nobody told me that as you get older, life is richer, more precious & holds more meaning. You know yourself more. Things bother you less and you fall less in to the comparison game. Everything that previously worried you starts falling in to place and the lessons and challenges start to make sense. You care less about what people think, how it’s always been & let go of other people’s ideas of how life should be lived and just live yours. The past three years have been brilliant, and I have a sense of peace, purpose and passion I’ve never had before.
Every year is a gift so never fear that opportunity. I share this for anyone who is afraid of getting older, or that time is running out, because of what we’ve been programmed to think. (Our bodies constantly regenerate themselves, time is questionable and energy never dies so maybe age is just an illusion? 😂) It truly is your script & you get to write it however you want. How much more joyful would life be if we decided things just kept getting BETTER with age? Forget the timeline. Forget what age you’re “meant to” have done things by. Enjoy YOUR ride...and make the most of it 🧡✨ [📸 @thesoulecho]
