Something dawned on me the other day. Tomorrow, I’ll no longer be 30. I’ll actually be in my 30s.
I’ve reached that stage in life where everything begins to slow down while simultaneously becoming more complicated.
Spending the past year as a 30-year-old, I never truly felt like I was “in my 30s “ As my 31st birthday arrives Monday, that feeling is beginning to change.
At 30, I got married, lost an old friend far too early and said goodbye to my second grandparent in as many years.
That, along with the speculation of what is to come in life, has led me to spend more time thinking about the impact I’m making as I start my own family, play a visible role in our community and try to leave a lasting impact on our world — even if that “world” is limited to southwest North Dakota.
