on turning 30

turning-30I know I have been gone a while–a very long while. I wish I had a good reason for staying away from this space, but the best I can do is to admit that I needed the time away as I was going through a “thing”. I know I’m being vague but that’s only because even I can’t even begin to explain to you-let alone myself-what it was that was wrong with me, except I felt down all the time and for no good reason whatsoever. I’ve attributed part of this strange slump to turning 30, right before my birthday I started panicking and by panicking I mean, getting really drunk with a friend one night and crying into my beer about how terrified I was about my upcoming birthday and how I hated the thought of leaving my 20s behind. How pathetic is that? I was THAT PATRON, crying IN. A. BAR. Not my best moment. Luckily after that, I started getting my act together and realizing that I needed to stop feeling sorry for myself, pick myself back up and look at the wonderful life I had and start appreciating what I had and what I had accomplished. Essentially, I needed to grow up.

So, I humbly come back to this place with a new perspective and hopefully some maturity. Oh, and guess what? I turned 30 and it wasn’t even half as scary as I expected, in fact, I think I’m gonna really enjoy my 30s.
