My 30th birthday is creeping up on me (dec 9). Most days I don't even think about it but it hit me the other day that's it's coming very soon.
I love birthdays, always have. Everyone puts such a stigma on 30 like it's the beginning of the end. Don't get me wrong I feel a slight panic when I say I'm turning 30 this year but the closer it gets the more I am embracing it as a good thing.
My 20's were great...for the most part and I am happy with where I am in life right now. Would I want to be 21 again, or even 25, no! The freedom of college was nice but I like the wisdom I have now. The carefree life before motherhood was fun but nothing beats being a mom. Being single was an adventure but marriage is so much better.
I want to look at 30 as a new journey in my life not a hill I'm about to fall down. What can I learn and do in my next decade?
And although saying 29 does sounds better than 30 I am excite for my celebration and a new chapter!
How did you feel hitting the big milestone or for those who are soon to be 30 somethings how are you handling it?
