As the years flew by, turning 30 was fast approaching. With big ideas in my mind about what I would do for my thirtieth birthday, when the time actually came, I couldn’t think of anything better than just spending it with my family; my amazing husband and my beautiful baby daughter.
When I turned 20, a good decade ago I said to myself that by the time I turn 30 I want to be able to show something that I am proud of and have achieved in my 20’s. With that in mind the 10 years went on by and along came some epic milestones that I am so proud of and have achieved.
My first achievement was actually finishing University and going on to getting my Masters degree. With that followed my first epic milestone, which was getting my PhD. Along with the ups and downs that scientific research brings and being way across the country away from my family and friends, I managed to pass my viva and achieve my goal of a PhD. Yes!
My second achievement was getting married. To some this may not be an achievement but to me it certainly was a milestone that I reached. I married my best friend and childhood sweetheart and we began our lives as a married couple together. Aww!
My third and probably the most epic milestone to achieve was the birth of my beautiful baby daughter. Through the pains and discomfort that pregnancy brings, alongside the cravings and the ‘all you can (and will) eat buffets’ came a small little human that changed my husbands and my life forever. Amazing!
So to say that I have achieved something great in my 20’s can be agreed on.
However, then came my time to turn 30. As I sat there thinking about my birthday, whilst cuddling my little one, I was speaking to my husband about the next 10 years to come. What could I do to make my 30’s be just as amazing as my 20’s? With a few ideas in mind and getting support from my husband and family members, I began some projects. Some projects which have been a passion of mine from such a young age and some where I feel that this is the time it would make my life successful.
So here’s hoping and wishing that the next 10 years are amazing and as successful as the last 10 years have been!
