In fact, as March has 31 days tomorrow it will officially be 30 days before my 30th birthday. But every March 29th I think it’s a month away and so I decided to post today. Yes, I’m going to be 30 and I’m very excited because I love celebrating my birthday. I do not like parties, but I love celebrating with my family, being pampered during the day, receiving calls from people who live far away, tight hugs and everything.
When it gets close to the date I always think about the previous years, what has changed, what I can and should improve, those kind of things. So the reason for this post is simply to share some random thoughts about this age!
I must begin by confessing that I did not imagine that I would continue to be a blogger at age 30! It’s been a little more than 7 years of blogging and I’ve always had some doubts about the longevity of this work. Apart from the fact that the internet is unpredictable and new things come up every second, I always wondered if there would be public or if posting looks would still make sense to me when life changes with my age, marriage, children, etc.
And here I am, confident that my blog never made so much sense to me!
I explain, you can not imagine how happy I am to know that you see on the blog much more than an inspiration in choosing a particular piece or as an incentive to consumerism. So many blogs talking about buying, having, traveling… but my goal was never this. And I wanted to be proud of my work, you know?
So every email or message from you saying that you have learned to feel more beautiful and confident wearing a pice, the skinny girls who identify and realize that there is nothing wrong with showing our slim legs (we are all together!), or people who see in the photos an artistic inspiration for the compositions of colors and choices of the backgrounds, people who take care of the blog as if it were of themselves, warning me when it finds some error or problem, readers who teach me and indicate such cool references. These are a few small examples that you make me happy!
I am arriving at 30 feeling fulfilled. I fell into this blogging world totally by chance, just to share with the world my photos that were my way of expressing myself since I’m very shy in real life. Today I can say that I do what I love.
Anyway, I’m going to be 30 years and I’m more excited than ever to continue here with you. And the good news is that I have felt more comfortable to go beyond the looks. I have even made some videos in the Instagram stories talking directly to the camera (yes!) and the messages I get from you are my biggest incentive. So posts like this, tips from photographs and reflections on conscious consumption should be more and more frequent here.
And can I tell you some big news? Me and Thiago bought our first apartment and soon I hope to be able to show here a little bit of this new phase of our life. I think you’re finally going to see a tour at the closet. We already live together, but now we can leave everything just like we want. May the 30’s come! (:
