Turning 30 and Why You Should Celebrate

I’m turning 30 this month.

It’s funny how something you can see a mile away can still take you by surprise.

When you’re in your 20s, everyone tells you to enjoy them, because they are the best days of your life. Granted, people said the same thing about high school and those days were anything but grand.

That said, I graduated from college in my 20s. Met my wife. Got two full-time jobs that paid me to write. Earned some awards. Traveled to the UK for the first time. Moved across the country. That should count for something.

But I have even higher hopes for my 30s.

When you’re 30, they say you have a much clearer vision of what you want to become. You’ve tried a few paths, tested the waters and can finally start moving toward that elusive goal you’ve been trying to set for the last decade.

That’s true for me. In fact, it’s how Heritage Studio came to be.

I’m celebrating my 30s by leaving my comfy corporate career path and chasing my dream of becoming a full time portrait photographer.

If you’re in a similar place, turning 30 or post-30, I want you to celebrate too. This is the decade you can stop dreaming and start achieving. Capture who you are today, and decide who you will become in the years to come.

This is your chance to redefine your life, and transform the way you see yourself.
