Dirty 30’s

30 shows up at your door step and reality sets in. You feel the walls moving in closer, earthquakes underneath shifting the foundation where you stand and the ceiling caving in. You lose your breath and rock back and forth to the idea of what the next decade will look like.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m NOT READY!

I am a world-renowned attorney, married to an amazing 6’7 strapping black man with about 2 children (boy and girl) and living down south in my beautiful brick, 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ bathroom estate sitting on a perfectly manicured 1 acre of land. My children answered the door when company arrived. They are home from school and ready to start homework on the granite top island in the middle of my kitchen as I prepare dinner. I passed my guest a freshly prepared Bellini as she recalls the story of her subpar date. My husband returned home from a long day of work and kisses me on the cheek while balancing two children on both legs, who are physically and emotionally ecstatic about his arrival. My guest stares with admiration (with a side of envy) of our perfect union as she sips away.

What movie/reality show was I watching?

The reality: I woke up from an unplanned nap in my 2 bedroom apartment that I share with my roommate. I am surrounded by utility bills and the glare of my opened laptop with Craigslist listings of apartments that I can’t afford. I am single and had my fair share of dismal dates. I work in the non-profit world which at times takes a lot more out of me that what it gives to me. Sallie Mae a.k.a. “Daddy” has become my official pimp and I am its “Bottom Chick”.

Yes, I am blessed. I have a full-time job with benefits, a positive support system and a set of morals and values that keep my faith intact. No complaints. However, I am scared as all hell. The uncertainty of what’s next is an unsettling thought.

I am not alone. If you were born in 1984 then get ready! If there is anything you are uncertain or uneasy about in your life, the homeland security system in your thoughts will be heightened from imminent to elevated right on your 30th Birthday.

Maybe that was a little dramatic. But I am learning to embrace it. Life brings on challenges and this time in our lives we make some of the best decisions that will shape our future to come. Although we are unsure of what’s ahead in the road of life, we still have the ability of choice. The saying goes, “The only thing constant in this world is change.” I am still learning to face it fearlessly.

    I remember turning 30 and they weren't as dirty as I thought. I thought I'd be afraid of turning 40, but as it gets closer I'm getting more excited. Flirty 40's here I come 🙂
