30 days until I turn 30.

I will admit that I am someone who actually thinks about this a lot. And have been for awhile.

For me it's a milestone and a benchmark. This deadline, so to speak, has been a driving force for me over the past couple of years. While I don't think I ever really said it out loud, there have been instances over the past while where 30 was the goalpost.

I didn't want to turn 30 and be struggling with my job and toxic workplaces.
I wanted to be surrounded by thoughtful, challenging, and meaningful relationships.
I wanted to be content in the moment.

And I have done all that.

There are things that I won't have achieved by 30. That's where the contentment comes in. In actuality, 30 is a silly gauge to judge yourself by and sometimes life doesn't work out the way you thought it would. But that doesn't make you a failure. What about all the years beyond 30?

You have to save something for those.

And I know the best is yet to come.
