Today I don’t feel any different than before. Sure everyone keeps telling me one of two things – that your 30s are the best OR that I’m old balls now. Whichever camp you’re in, I think it’s more of a mindset than anything else.
When I was turning 25, I read some article that spoke about being at the height of your career at age 29. At that moment, I felt like I needed to scramble and accomplish as many things as I could before turning 29. It’s no secret that I really didn’t accomplish a whole lot of things and I still have plenty of room to grow in my career. I don’t think that 29 is the magic number anymore, it’s just a mindset.
To celebrate my 30th in style, I headed down to Branson, Mo., over the weekend to meet up with 13 friends at Silver Dollar City. We had a blast. It’s not the greatest amusement park in the United States, but when you’re in a large group of friends that genuinely enjoy hanging out with one another, some great moments are had.
Then yesterday, after work, all of my local friends came out to Harry’s Country Club for some adult beverages. I didn’t last the entire night, but I really enjoyed everyone’s company and assistance with ushering me into my 30s.
Thanks to everyone who wished me happy birthdays. If I had a giant bubble to put over the past three days and keep forever, I would.
