I have no woes about getting older, I'm excited to see what life will bring. Plus, I still feel like I'm 16! My hubbs on the other hand is not keen on nearing 30, but I keep telling him that it's all in his head and we are only as old/young as we feel!
I loved turning 30. I was one of the first of my friends to enter that decade of life and it finally clicked for me - all that confidence I felt, all that ambition I had, was now secure and stable that I had that number to back it up. I have loved my thirties and think it's the sweet years for women - you're at the peak of your beauty (and your sexual prime! ha!). Love,Kara
Thank you for being a blogger who can actually write. It's not just that you have something meaningful to say; great insight and kind thoughts, it's that you can actually string words together to form grammatically sound sentences. It does not go unnoticed!
Totally feel this same way. I'll be turning 30 May 2 and if my 30s are half as good as my 20s I'll be happy :) It's just a number...not a big deal! Embrace it :)
I totally agree with everything you said. You should see my husband on his birthday. He hates it & hates getting older. He even makes fun of me for wanting to be older :) I just feel like life is starting. I know what I want & who I am & I can't wait for the future.
Yea! I turned 30 in September. I'm loving it! And I, too, felt the way you did heading up to 30...happy and grateful for the growth in my 20s and excited to start the next chapter in my 30s. I love that you (and many others based on the comments) seem to have adopted such a healthy attitude about entering a new decade in life. In fact, I think that the dread some have about aging keeps them not only from enjoying each day; it keeps them from growing. Here's to embracing who we are and who we are becoming each day!
Totally agree. I turned 30 in Nov. and I realized I'm pretty proud of where I am in my life. Although, I was in a car accident the other day and went to the hospital. The nurse asked me if I was still menstruating. HOW OLD DO I LOOK??? :/
man i so needed to read that. i'm turning 30 in march and have been freaking out about it since the day i turned 29 :/
I just turned 30 TODAY and I'm so glad you posted it on my 30th Birthday! very appropriate! and I am very excited to be in my 30's now! :)
Good news ladies. As a 37yo,I can say with experience, that your 30s are even better than your 20s. The added confidence, wisdom, grace and self-assurance are amazing. Happy birthday to all of the newly-turned 30yos. Enjoy and get excited.
Haha- great minds think alike. I just wrote a post on growing older today, too! I think you are the most beautiful 30 year old I know!
I'm nearly a year into 30, and, maybe it's just psychological, but I have felt so much more confident and together since I entered this new decade. I always think actresses grow more gorgeous, self-assured and influential as they move through their 30's - I think I'm moving in that direction, too!! Alison :)
Fantastic attitude. I recently turned 40 and could not be happier. I remember in my late 20s being so depressed at being 27,28, 29 and when I got to 30 I thought to myself "Why did I waste all that time wishing I was was back to 21, 22, 23 etc." My only recently slip was watching the Sex and the City series for the millionth time. The girls had always been older than me by a few years and when Carrie turned 35, I realised with panic that I would now, forever be older than my tv idols. I quickly reminded myself of the wasted 'wishing my years away' period of life and pulled myself together. Your words are so true about how important it is to reflect on who you are and to find comfort in it.
Thank you for that! I just turned 24 and I've already started to dread 30. And I really don't know why! I'm trying really hard not to dwell on the number and be thankful for each day in each year that the Lord gives me.
My 20s were rough and a big learning experience. Being in my 30s I feel I know myself more, I don't care much what others think about me (refreshing) and I appreciate the little things that life has to offer!
