Lindsay Lohan is on the brink of change. She’s engaged, she’s writing a book, producing an album, thinking about starting a charity, thinking about having kids, and hitting the big 3-0.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Lindsay Lohan actually sounds pretty grounded, but she’s had a lot of practice pretending to be grounded. Perhaps growing older is simply making the performance of wisdom more convincing? Interviewer Lauren Le Vine asks, “What would your 30-year-old self tell your younger self when she started filming The Parent Trap?” and she replied via email:

My mother taught me to always be humble, and that is something I live by still today, so I would say that. I would also probably say don’t go too fast. Pay attention to the people you surround yourself with and make sure they have honest intentions. Put yourself first, and just breathe. Be happy and always be grateful for the moment you have in front of you. Be here, now.

Lohan is here, now, making an album with Universal/Motown. On her budding authorship, she says, “I am in the process of writing a book, and I am very excited to share my personal experiences in life and how to overcome obstacles. I hope that my words will connect with those who need some guidance when [or] if they are in a tough place.”

I honestly would read a self-help book by this new Lindsay, though my Lohan days are far behind me. She isn’t hiding from turning 30, nor should any woman. As she declares, “Embrace it.” Especially if you’re embracing it in Greece with your Russian millionaire fiancé, maybe even making plans for a comeback in Herbie: Even More Loaded.
