Dirty Thirty

Welcome back to Takemetotheheights.com.

A few days ago marked a month since turning 30 and I am incredibly grateful for that. Y’all, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ve gone back and forth with these edits and with what I really wanted to say due to the nature of what this particular blog post would entail.

Of course before turning 30, I spoke to a few close friends of mine of what it felt like being 3o, what’s changed for them ( It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t ask -____-) I definitely got hit with responses like knees hurting, certain foods no longer being a staple so on and so forth. But I realized I wasn’t asking what I truly had in my heart:

What has turning 30 taught you? Yes I relatively feel the same. Yet my thoughts and the way I express myself more explicitly/intentionally feels different. Now before I delve any deeper, I’m gonna give y’all a bit more context. i’ve always ( and I mean always) been the type to brush off things, not really allowing external factors so to say, get the best of me. Let me tell you, if you’re like me, then I suggest you take heed to speaking up as often as you need to.

Turning 30 has truly opened my eyes to the things I’ve ignored. I no longer have the bandwidth to do so as I get older. I knew coming into this post, I didn’t want it to be the typical/cookie cutter post of do’s/don’ts approaching 30. There’s no right or wrong way to go about it. You just have to make sure that all that you do is intentional and beneficial to you and only you. (Yes, I mean you reading this) Man, if I had the power to go back and change certain things I would but I believe it all happened for me to be in this space to be so much more appreciative/grateful.

Being 30 has given me a bit more of an edge so to say to truly stand in all that I am and all that I say (coming from a Libra, this is huge..we are seldom to being indecisive -____-)

So in honor of my Dirty Thirty and all those who have (or will turn 30 ) my only advice is to really live your life. Go out and do the things you truly love to do. Make time for the person that truly matters and that’s you. You deserve all the beauty and splendor this life has to offer.

I got so wrapped up in my personal affairs that I almost lost sight of that. I am truly thankful I am in the space that I can continue to prioritize myself, my needs and all of that I desire and then some.

So before I end off this blog post, I just want to stress just how significant it was to write this to you, the readers. As I delve a bit deeper, be a bit more transparent with you, I knew I needed to showcase just what turning 30 meant for me. If you’re embarking your 30s or have already done so, let me know in the comments down below.

Above all else, if you made it all the way here, you are truly appreciated. Please be sure to follow takemetotheheights on all of is its respective social media pages and as always….

With peace and so much love,
