“This is 31…thank f****ng god,” she wrote. “30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay.”

She then talks about looking forward to being 31, promising to focus on herself and her growth.

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

She ends her post with words of wisdom to her fans and followers: “Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough.”

But what fans are going nuts about is that she teased an upcoming album to cap off the year that was.

“Bunch of f****ng savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you,” she said.

Looks like we’re getting new Adele music soon! Are you excited to hear more music from Adele? What kind of songs do you hope to hear from her this time around?
