I turn 30 this November. WOAH ! HOW THE HELL DID THAT HAPPEN? I mean, I still remember turning 21 just as if it was yesterday and that happy feeling of a brand new life ahead. Now suddenly my twenties are almost over and there’s a new decade to look forward to and a slightly new mental adjustment that I have to make (not to mention change my WordPress bio!). 😉
About a month ago, I declared I was taking part in NaBloPoMo for the month of November. This decision was based on the fact that November also happens to be my birthday month and I felt like I had something to share this year. What better way to kill two birds with one stone?
Anyway, to affirm and acknowledge this new turn in my life, I thought I would share 30 lessons that I have personally learned in 30 years. While drafting a rough list of these lessons, I recognized that this idea has been unconsciously borrowed from one of my favorite books, God Never Blinks: 52 Life Lessons by Regina Brett.
Although my original series was called 30 Lessons I Learned in 30 Years, I realized some weeks ago that it would be terribly hypocritical of me if I shared “lessons” that I have learned but don’t actually follow all the time. Sure my life has taught me some stuff but sometimes I forget things and put bad experiences behind me which eventually leads to some repeated blunders. What can I say? I’m human.
So in lieu of this revelation, I have changed the name of my series to 30 Notes to Self. The idea is the basically the same although the target audience is not. Whereas before it was about sharing life lessons aimed at readers, the Notes to Self are going to be strong reminders of realizations and lessons aimed at myself. These notes are going to be my new personal manifesto to live by.
I really hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. As always, I would love to hear from you so please do leave me your feedback, suggestions, ideas and thoughts in the comments section.
