"It's far more important to enjoy the everyday, irrelevant of whether you're ill or not, or how long or short you think your future's going to be. You only have today to deal with right now and I think we're all too keen to wish that away".
My next guest is another one who emailed in, and I was immediately blown away by her story. Steph Wedderburn is 28, a mum to a one year-old son, and the former owner of two businesses - but there’s a lot more to it than that.
I’ll let her tell you the whole story, but one of the most striking things to me was how much she’s had to deal with in such a short space of time. Not only that, but she seems to be a really positive person too, despite everything.
This one is a little longer than the others, but hopefully you understand why - I had real trouble taking things out as it was so interesting!
Don’t forget that if you’ve got a view or a story about turning 30, or you know someone who does that you think would be great to chat to, you can get in touch through my website the30project.co.uk, or you can email direct to firstname.lastname@example.org.
