This is a fantastic article! I can relate to nearly every point you made. I also turned 30 last summer (my 31st is this week), and I also quit my job and became self-employed this year. I thought the act of turning thirty was a big deal but, as it turns out, BEING 30 has been far more transformative. The twelve months that followed my 30th birthday were some of the most challenging — and best — of my life. I don’t know if I’ve ever grown so much in just one year, and I’m thrilled about this new phase.
Thank you for perfectly capturing this weird and wonderful stage of life.
Cheers to 31 :)
