Being 30 something…..

2 weeks back I turned thirty I entered my thirties…and people all across asked me as to how do I feel now ? Well though I haven’t thought about that much but I still try to analyse..How do I really feel having spent 29 years of my life on this planet earth ? Do I need to list down my achievements or the failures or the happy and sad moments or count my relationships or my earnings or whatever…

Before I really get down to do all this stuff..I have a question ! What is so special about being 30 ? or even nearing that ? What lies on that side of the age meter ? Is it something really strange or weird or very nice or what ? Why do people have to call and wish the usual  ‘happy b’day to you‘ and jump to the question ‘how do you feel entering your 30s?’ I mean every one reaches to their 20s and to 30s and then to their 40s and so on.. so why make a hue and cry about it, no ? Or may be I don’t understand there is really something special to cherish about and announce it and enjoy it and shout it out..bah !

As I have already mentioned in my last post about being 30…. It’s just a beautiful stage in life..another year of happiness..some sad moments where we need to be brave…some beautiful relationships..lovely holidays…more plans and the achievements..not to forget a certain set of failures as well…to be wacky again and to enjoy the moments…to be around your loved ones…etc etc…

Also some relatives tell me that I need to grow up now since I’m 30..and that I don’t look or behave like one…that I need to stop being a kid and start being quiet and behave and look mature…dah dah dah…. My god ! Gimme a break guys ! How in the world do you look mature ? What, is there any make-up available so that you can apply it and look 30..err..mature ? hahaha.. spare me the scare ! I mean isn’t it enough for these people to know that I’m still sane and in my senses ?? That I behave and act maturely whenever it is required to..And other times just let me be ya !! P L E A S E ,will you ?

I believe that you should be yourself and showcase what you are and not what someone else want you to be or you should be according to the so-called norms ! What say you, eh ?

  1. That was an awesome post. I avoided calls on my bday this year, as I didn't want to feel aged by these questions (How intelligent!). But responded to all missed calls with a message!That was a valid point: "you should be yourself and showcase what you are and not what someone else want you to be"We are always child at heart- appreciating beauty of life!! LEt's keep going!!Happy Birthday(don't count the years!)LoveSavitha

  2. Now that you are 30, does that mean there's more pressure to have kids?? I think at every decade, people ask you what it's like etc etc. I know of people that do it every 5 years…they moan and groan about going on the 'other side of 25'. Age is just a number. You are as old as you feel is my motto. And at the moment, I feel 30! 😛

  3. @PB: Yes you pointed the right thing.. not a pressure I say but curiosity for sure 🙂 questions like "when are you planning?", "what's the plan about baby?" "will it not be too late for the first one?" hahahaha LOLYes I too believe that it's all in your mind ! I you want to feel 80 you will be 80 and so on 🙂

  4. Well written Nu 🙂 Its just another yr that hs passed by :)We r what we are and wil always be 🙂 Loved the ending note 😀

  5. happy (belated) 30!! someone wise told me 30 is the new 20.. so just enjoy this phase.. its fun..from a co 30 year old..ajcl

  6. Belated birthday wishes for you. And dont worry about all those who keep asking you how does it feel to be a certain age. Its really in the mind. (I used to classify myself amidst the "young people" till buying insurance for a trip kind of brought me down to earth because of some requirements for folks nearing 60. The agent must have cracked up. I certainly look my 60 years. )You are what you are, and no one defines any norms about how to think at a given age… Whether 30 is the new 20 , or 60 is the new 35, Enjoy, have fun, and share fun……

  7. lol…they ask you to look and feel mature? 😀 haha…what do you tell people like those. :-)congrats on turning 30, my dear…how does it feel? 😉 LOL…just kidding

  8. Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.:)

  9. @AJCL: Yeah, I enjoy life as it comes ! I'm cool 🙂 And hey thanks..and same pinch 🙂 co-30 !!@UK: You are totally right ! And yes having fun is what everyone tells you but you told me to share fun…that's a nice idea-spreading happiness !@EC: Rito 🙂

  10. Eh! I think the awesomest thing would be,be 30 and look or behave it, it’s a compliment , those guys are just J, considering they grew up way too soon!
    I think your attitude is perfect, and I feel I will try to have the same next year this time 😉

  13. haha! At 22 I get the same advice to look and behave matured and stop getting excited about the smallest things and all. But thats never going to happen :P. Being in touch with the kid in you is awesome :D. And I hope you remain the same :).
    Me: yes it’s great to be connected to the kid in you…and I’ll remain the same 😉 changing me is a tough task you see 😉

  14. ‘I believe that you should be yourself and showcase what you are and not what someone else want you to be or you should be according to the so-called norms ! What say you, eh ?’ – Absolutely!
