You thought by the golden age of 30 all your shit would magically be put together. Now you're 30 and broke, career hoping, raising a kid or trying to plan for one, single or settled… Grass isn’t always greener and you’re damn sure not wiser with age! Whelp I’m here to tell you just because you’re 30 and bare don’t let the judgment sink in! Revise that vision board and grab the highlighters for your planner the journey has just begun!
No one told me about the effects of partying in my 30s…
Okay we’re not old and we’re far from it. I’m sure I made that clear but honey let me tell you, going out is hella different. I could go from work, to happy hour, to bar hoping, to a club then a afterhour in one day. I could drink 5 shots, 3 beers and a long island and still manage be ready for more. I would dance all night in my 5 inch heels, dropping down and getting my eagle on and drop n gimme 50. Ever since I turned 30,shit just dramatically changed. I’m tired by 9:30pm on a Friday. Now it’s happy hour then bed. I can only dance 30 minutes. However, If Im super drunk and feeling myself I’ll dance all night. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t wake up the next day feeling like I was jumped. I get drunk after drinking three coolers. Drunk sex becomes me falling asleep before we even got to do the nasty.
I am at the point in my life where I rather go on vacation to actually relax, laying on the beach and finish a good book. Don’t get me wrong I will turn up on vacation but I will also make time to turn my ass down. I use to go on vacation and party nonstop. Get back to work needing more sleep then I did the week before.
( I just randomly had a thought, sorry this is just how my brain works)…
Funny quick story.
My sister’s and I took a trip to NOLA for the first time. We had so much shit planned. Soon as we got to New Orleans we hit up Bourbon street and started drinking and dancing. We had a good ole time. The next day we hit the streets early and went to a music festival. Soon as we got back to the hotel at like 6pm we all wanted to take a nap. It’s my birthday weekend so I know we wanted to party hard. Once we were done with our naps, I asked my younger sister if she wanted to go back out. She replied, I’ll go if you want to. My older sister said the same thing. I got the vibe that they wouldn’t mind if I didn’t want to go out. When, I announced that I didn’t want to go out, they were so relieved and started laughing. At that very moment I knew I hit 30 and rather sleep then party.
It’s like when your at work and you’re super duper tired but you get that wind of energy later on.. well that’s your 30s. We are in the stage of always being tired and wanting sleep more than anything. Naps are important, getting 8 hours of sleep and a peace of mind. I heard that at the end or our 30s and the start of our 40s, we hit the wind of energy! So, I’m okay with my 5 year or so I just wanting to get all the sleep I missed in my 20s. I can’t wait to be the turn up mom at my son’s college party. Oh he think I’m not crashing one he got me fucked up lol. Moma just got her wind back!
