Music superstar Adele turned 31 on Monday and her birthday gift to herself should serve as an inspiration to us all.


In post on Instagram, the singer relished making into her 4th decade and she could not be more optimistic about the future.

"This is 31...thank f***ing god," the caption read. "30 tried me so hard but I'm owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all."

Life isn't easy for anyone, even the rich and famous.

"No matter how long we're here for life is constant and complicated at times," she wrote. "I've changed drastically in the last couple years and I'm still changing and that's okay."

Being in your 30's is awesome, and Adele plans on reconnecting with what's most important - herself.

"31 is going to be a big ol' year and I'm going to spend it all on myself," she said. "For the first time in a decade I'm ready to feel the world around me and look up for once."

Self-care is truly undervalued in our non-stop, hyper-stressful culture. But in the end, Adele stressed that we are responsible for our own happiness and fulfillment.

"Be kind to yourself people we're only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity," she advised. "Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I've only just realized that that is more than enough.

"I'll learn to love you lot eventually 😂," she joked. "Bunch of f*cking savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you.
Chin up eh ❤️."

This is the wholesome, positive content we need right now.

The birthday wishes flooded Twitter.





Happy birthday Adele.

Chosen family is family. Sometimes they are the closest and most important family. Just because you share blood with someone, doesn't mean you have to form a bond.

That's why best friends are so important.

BFFs are forged in many ways. They're there for you in triumph and sorrow. They hold your hand. T
