Keep Calm, I'm Only 30!

image from

I was in a company of friends yesterday, Irene and Jane. Irene, like the way she always does, kept joking me all week about leaving them in 20's. And said the same joke yesterday to which Jane replied, "Are we supposed to hold a despedida party?". :D Silly girls! But I love them still.

Yeah, I'm 30! And a lot of people (friends and loved ones especially) make a BIG deal out of it! LOL! What's with being 30? It's just a number, isn't it?

Well, I know most of these friends and loved ones mean well. Maybe they wanted to see me happy being married and have kids of my own and successful and maybe... uh...  rich? :D Well, I'm not there yet. I wish I am. I hope I could.

I always tell them that I'm not in a hurry to settle down. Sometimes I mean it. But there were days that I wish I was what they're wishing me to be. Sometimes it makes me feel sad. Ah! The pressure of ageing!

Guess what? I don't want to cry today and make a melodramatic post like I used to do on my 20's. Haha! In fact, I never had that birthday blues days before today. Congratulations to me for not being such a cry-baby!

There's so much to be thankful for in my life. I have great friends and my family who are always there for me. A lot of them are miles away now, but thanks to social networking sites, I can still get in touch with them. And I know pretty well that they love me! What's not to love about me, anyway? LOL! And I love them back... very much! To my friends who are near (you know who you guys are!), thanks for putting up with my craziness and always making me laugh. Thanks for always being around! 

I'm thankful for my Mom, for teaching me to be tough yet caring and help me become the woman I am today. I love you, no matter what!

And to You! Thank YOU for always being there. Thanks for making me happy. And... we'll see. :D

Most of all, I thank God for this life. Although there are hard times, I know He's never left me. I thank God because although I'm not rich in worldly possessions, he gave me things that money can't buy - my family, my friends and most of all, my FAITH! Thus, I'm happy and content. Thank You, Heavenly Father, for everything!

AYan! At may birthday post agad! Pero nauna ako nag-post up. Hahaha!

You're right. 30 is just a number. When you reach your 35th birthday, you'd say the same thing. Lol!

May you find happiness in HIM at all times. I am incredibly pleased that you have been actively serving our Lord God Almighty. For that, I believe that all your prayers will be granted. AMEN!

Happy birthday! Love yah!

As consuelo, my cousin got married a month before she turned 31. She got reconnected to her boyfriend eight months earlier and then decided to tie the knot. (--,)

Happy birthday, Ally! You have the same birthdate as my brother. Hope you'll get everything that you will for this year.

You're still young iha and you have the world as your oyster. Enjoy it! Explore it! Live life!

I'm already 41 and I feel like there's more to experience in life that I am looking forward to it day in and out.

Have a happy 30th birthday and remember, the numbers will keep piling but it's how you live your life that matters. Enjoy!

Cher said...

yes, turning 30 is not a big deal because as the cliche goes... life begins at 40! haha! kiddin' aside, read so much about you over at Lainy's blog. i agree with her, though i don't really know you the way Lainy described you makes you a remarkable woman in my eyes. not many people are selfless. :)
enjoy the big day! you are blessed. :)

Cher said...

Happy Birthday, for the 3rd time! May God send more blessings your way:)

For an engineer like me, number is everything. Each digit counts. 040813 will never return and to that I may say... make every minute of your life be wasted on positive things. Happy Birthday again Ally.

Teresa Martinez said...

You are quite right. You have so much to be thankful for at whatever age. Stay happy.

cheerful said...

Happy Birthday...and God bless you more! enjoy being 30, time will come for that...for now, have fun! :)

betchai said...

happy birthday, don't worry, I believe everyone past 30 went through the same struggle, life begins at 40! Haha, somehow, I may have those up and down emotions when I was 30, but after I have accepted that challenging stage, of being constantly nagged when am I getting married, etc etc, ageing has become happier and happier for me each year! Happy happy birthday again.

Happy birthday,Allena. Well, 30 is always a big deal considering it is end of a zero that's why people think you need to do this and that. Don't bother what people expectations,enjoy life and be happy.

My friends were like that when I was at that age and still single. In all honesty, I was worried too lol but luckily got hitched! As long as happy with your life, it is just a number.

Happy Birthday Allena. I read in Lainy's post that you're a great person and really have a kind heart. God knows that too and so at the right time and with the right person, you'll have your moment.

I wish you all the best in life. (lencilicious)
