Turns out there is still hope for me after all. I turned 30 years old this March I couldn’t help but to start acknowledging those prevalent thoughts of inadequacy and lack of accomplishment as another decade came to a close, but the sordid self reflection of my life was overly dramatic to say the least. I sat with that puzzled look on my face softly gazing out the wind with questions like, “How will my voice be heard?”, or “how can I make an impact in the lives of others?”, or my favourite, “when will I be a star?” I never thought I would really buy-in to these ideas of social norms attributed to age, but there is a certain squeeze we all feel when we hit these hard-hitting decade birthdays. The older we get the more we realize that we too will pass one frightful day, and our impermanence can be very overwhelming.
Fortunately, for those who sit in the same shoes as me, I don’t think we need to start to panic quiet yet. Several highly recognizable faces didn’t reach their full stride until after 30th birthday either! It is with this simple recognition that I hope you give yourself some time to decompress from internal self-critic, telling yourself you can and will accomplish your goals.
