Do you remember the first time your computer crashed and you lost all of your digital belongings? Do you remember how they asked you, “You backed up right?” I know my answer to that question was, “What’s backing up? And why have I never been informed or taught about this?” Well, the thirties feel a bit like that life lesson to me. People talk and write about the teenage years, their twenties and even the forties and beyond but I hear and read very little about the thirties decade of life. It’s like no man’s land between discovering yourself and knowing who you are, with not a ton of insight into what is supposed to happen beside getting married and having babies. So I’ve decided to document my thirties in the hopes that it will not only help me accomplish, process and shed light on the ominous thirties but to also let you know that we’re all in this new decade of life together. Because, if any of the famous quotes below about being in your thirties are true, then we’re in for an interesting ride.

So, join me in the comments to commiserate, celebrate and chit chat about how your thirties were looking back on it, how it’s actually going today or how you think it’ll be once you’ve conquered your teens and twenties.

  1. Hi Tiffany, I’m Henry’s cousin Mayra and although we haven’t met before, I enjoy reading your blog and knowing more about you. I am extremely proud of my cousin and I’m overjoyed to learn he has a great woman by his side. May God continue to bless you both in your marriage and in your new adventure in Texas and may your love continue to grow and flourish.

    Regarding your 30’s survival…you couldn’t be more right…I turned 30 this year and i found myself asking so many questions…”Have I accomplished my goals?, Should I be looking for more to life? Am I too late to pursue a new career, education”? I remember looking at relatives in their mid 30’s and thinking…wow…they are so grown up, but now that I’ve hit that number…I don’t feel any different….should I….? LOL

    • Hi Mayra, nice to e-meet you and thanks for reading my blog! Your thirties are an interesting time to write about…so much life change. Thank you so much for your well wishes! I’ll tell him you say hi and hope you and yours are doing well also.
