Selena Gomez Reveals Why She's "Starting to Really Like 30"
After celebrating her 30th birthday by spending time with bestie Taylor Swift and partying in a sequin feathered minidress, Selena Gomez shared her thoughts on the milestone birthday. "Have had a moment to catch up. Though there are so many words to say I'll simply leave it at this. My twenties were a journey through good, hard and beautiful moments that I will never forget," the "Only Murders in the Building" actor wrote in an Instagram post shared on July 25.
She continued, "Each of them has shaped me into the person that I am today. I am someone who is still learning, but is more certain about what matters and what she wants. Someone who is grateful for every single gift and every single lesson along the way." Having acknowledged what her 20s brought her, she went on to discuss her hopes for the future — what her intentions are as she starts this new chapter of her life, not with trepidation but with hope and optimism. It sounds like the birthday girl is placing the most focus on self-care and growth.
"I want to try my best to take the beautiful and the painful one day at a time and let it all make me into the very best me that I can be for myself/others/you."
"I am walking forward encouraged by so many strong, empowering people around me. I want to try my best to take the beautiful and the painful one day at a time and let it all make me into the very best me that I can be for myself/others/you. After a few days of celebrating, my heart feels full, grateful and I can say that I'm starting to really like 30," she wrote, expressing gratitude for everyone who has been a part of her journey so far.
As Gomez enters a new decade, she seems more self-assured than ever before. This is the beginning of a new era for her career, her love life (in a recent TikTok, her grandma accidentally revealed that she is, indeed, dating again), and her own self. All the best wishes to the birthday girl, and as Gomez wrote in her post, "Here's to another decade!"
