This is a poignant message to mark a significant milestone.

After three days Selena Gomez celebrated turning 30, the “Lose You to Love Me” singer “had a moment to catch up” and shared a reflective post on Instagram about what she has learned in the past three decades.

There are so many things to tell, but I will just leave it as is. “My twenties was a trip through good, difficult and beautiful moments that will not be forgotten,” she wrote on July 25 along with a black and white photograph showing her smiling from ear to ear. Each of these experiences has helped me become the person I am today.

Selena describes herself as someone who “is still learning” but also has a firm grasp on what is important and what she desires in life. She said she is “grateful for every single gift and every single lesson along the way.”

“I’m moving forward, encouraged by so many powerful, empowering individuals around me,” she said. “I’m going to do my best for the people and things around me, to accept the ugly and good.
