I’ve felt a bit disheartened this year. Perhaps because I have celebrated the last birthday in my 20s with the realisation that I haven’t achieved all the things I would have liked to by now.
For me, life has sped up in places I didn’t expect it to and slowed down in those areas I thought should and would have progressed by now.
Of course 30 is just a number and nothing is really going to change on the day, I’m aware of that – but we can’t help but have aspirations marked by milestones.
That being said, it is a new year – a time, symbolically, for fresh starts and I still have 6 months until the big 3-0.
