Here’s to 33! ⭐️ “Today you are you!
That is truer than true!
There is no one alive
who is you-er than you!” Age is but just an arbitrary number. Might sound cliche, but it indeed is more about how many ‘years’ filled in that age than the number itself. *Childhood till 10 is usually such a happy, carefree time
“Together we have climbed hills and trees...
Learned of love and ABCs..
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees” 👯♂️ *Then arrives “Teenage” - the turbulent terrain. A hotch- potch of emotions.
With its newly discovered sense of self, independence and outer world. *20’s are a fallacy, brimming with false promises that one can conquer the world. One tends to feel their smartest best, walking on egg shells.
That one job, one promotion, one marriage, one degree would change your life forever.
Everything goes cut-throat. Competition and insecurities take their toll.
As an average 20 something, it’s a standard to assume that the clock is ticking, and that the time will pass you by and that life will fail you as you approach that dreaded 30th mark, and everything must be accomplished before that.
Most of you have been up, close and personal with pain, failures, dejection by now.
That disloyal friend who back-stabbed, that colleague who would kill to earn that coveted role, that sweetheart who walked out on you, that spouse who shifted gears halfway, those rosy ‘unfulfilled’ promises, susral gone wicked, fertility issues, societal pressure and what not! *And then one day you are that dreaded “30” 😊
So mindful, calm and liberated! ♥️♥️ Apparently, turns out what you feared is not that scary after all.
Rather quite a pleasant state of being.
After all, it’s an exhilarating experience to LET GO.
Freed from all the external pressures, closer to self than never before as you have let go of all societal inhibitions, closer to everything that YOU were truly passionate about.
“truer than true and you-er than you” 💜
Hello to you all from that point in life.
Personal GOAL: To be the BEST version of myself at 40.
InshaAllah & lets get working!
Happy 30s to all those sailing along.
Let’s power through together 😘😘 #33yearsyoung
