It’s my 30th birthday, and I’ll cry if I want to…

OMG, I’m 30 today! I have to be honest…Henry can also attest to this…I had a little cry and sulk yesterday…

I know – SAD, PATHETIC…what other words can I use here??!!! Crying because I’m 30??? I swear, during all the months, weeks, and days leading up to this moment, I was totally fine with it! Just another number I thought…although I probably was thinking about it subconciously as my 29th year passed by so quickly and I was thinking I was 30 already! Everytime I had to fill out a form with my age or was asked how old I was, 30 was the number floating around in my mind.

I know it’s supposed to be my dirty thirties, but no crazy birthday weekend was had – just filming two weddings and a photoshoot! I stepped into a new decade doing some family photography. I will hopefully be sharing the photos with you all very soon! I had a blast and the family I was working with was incredible!

The conclusion to all of this is that it all ends well…I basically had another moment – after the cry – where I was truly happy…I realized that I’m actually super lucky to have a job that I LOVE and I’ve only just turned 30!!! Yes, think about the glass half full Joanie… Henry didn’t let me feel sorry for myself for too long anyways. He gave me a bit of a pep talk and I realized I was being ridiculous….”you would cry too if it happened to you…” No Joanie, other people wouldn’t cry too.  Celebrating is what I should and WILL be doing soon!

People in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, is life greener on the other side?? And people on the brink of their 30’s…do you fear turning that corner just as I did?? I swear, I’m not always this irrational, though Henry might tell you otherwise LOL!

Until the next post,
Joanie x
