Happy New Year! In precisely 2 Months and 2 Days, I will be turning 30. I think for most women this is a monumental mark in their lives, and I am no exception. I did not think I would be 29, not married (or even close), out of shape, laid-off with no clue where I want to go with my career, and the closest thing I have to a kid is my cat. Basically: Lost.
After talking with my friends, my hairdresser and even strangers, I have figured out I’m not alone in this feeling. Despite what TV, movies and magazines tell you, not everyone has their lives figured out by this point. Growing up in the Midwest, I was sure I would be married at 28 (later than average because I’m a little bit of a rebel), have my first child at 30 and second at 32. Since that timeline has come and went, it’s time to start a new one.
In the upcoming months, I am going to try new things, learn new skills, workout and hopefully find myself in the process. Join me in a very honest look at the road to Finding My 30’s.
