On Turning 30

It’s official; my 20s are over. I turn thirty today.


I remember when I was about 9-10, I told my friends and teachers that my father was 32 years old. It seems so unreal that I am almost the same age as my father was then.

Turning thirty is a big deal for almost everyone. There are a lot of questions/thoughts that come to your mind, like:

  • Am I too old to do ______ now?
  • Is it time to get married?
  • My friends of the same age have accomplished so much in life. I’m still trying to figure out who I am and what I want to do.

I’m not going to lie, but I have had such thoughts too. It seemed scary when it hit me yesterday that I was turning thirty.

But it didn’t bother me much later. I realized that life is just the way it is.

When you turn thirty, you just don’t realize how time went by so quickly. “Time doesn’t wait for anyone.” It’s indeed true.

What’s gone is gone. You can’t live in the past. It’s not in your control to go back in time and change things.

So, I have nothing but gratitude for the life I’ve lived over the past three decades. It was a hell of a journey. But it’s time to say goodbye and start a new adventure ahead.

The next decade is going to be huge for me. I have goals and plans that I know will change my life to a great extent. I look forward to living my 30s (and the remaining years of my life) doing what I love and accomplishing greater things in life.

So that’s it.

Thanks for reading my work and supporting me always.

Much love,
