one. best birthday ever.
I’m not going to pretend I dreaded yesterday. Turning 30 has seemed so awful… And the last few months of my twenties have been hard. But today I feel as though I have a new lease on life. We only get one chance on this Earth, so I have to put one foot in front of the other, continue moving forward in life, and be grateful for all I have have. Thank you to everyone for making yesterday so special. My family and friends blew me away with their thoughtfulness.
The icing on the cake was my husband bringing home my sister. I wish I could’ve also spent today with my Dad, brother, sister in law, nephews, other sister, cousins, aunts, and uncles – but I know that in good time we will all be together again. As my brother told me earlier today, youth is merely a state of mind. No matter how “old” I get, I’ll always stay young at heart.
I do not understand why some people dread getting older while others don’t get phased by it at all. It’s a life mystery I may never understand. None the less embrace your 30’s. Your 20s are a learning phase and your 30’s is where it’s at! Enjoy!
Happy Birthday! Good for you having a positive outlook on the coming year!
