It’s that time of year again for my customary birthday (of myself, not blog) blog post and keeping up with the theme of my past year, it’s a big one. Yes, I have turned 30.

Okay, enough of that talk. Not that I think 30 is old mind you, and it’s definitely not as old as I thought it was when I was 15, but am I where I thought I would be at 30?

Basically, yes! Which is pretty awesome in my opinion. I have an amazing job in one of the most beautiful & cosmopolitan cities in the world; creative, talented & intelligent friends and a supportive & loving family back home.

Am I surprised that I’m where my 18 self thought I’d be when I was asked to write a letter to my future self (must dig out)? Not really, because deep down I’ve always known what I wanted & I can be pretty stubborn. The trick is, and this is one of the themes from my past year, is to stick with your gut instincts. You have them for a reason.

Bring on the new 20s!
