It's Ok to be 30!!!

I'm totally putting a birthday spin on today's It's OK.  Today marks the beginning of the last month of my Twenties.  In one month from now I'll be turning the big Three Oh.  Most people have an issue with turning 30 but I've never really dreaded it (does that make me weird?) Here's why I think It's OK to be 30!

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK to be 30.....
~because I have accomplished so much before this big day.  I'm married.  I have 2 kids (and I'm done having kids).  I have an amazing career.  We own a home.  I own my car (well one of them anyways).  That's a lot of HUGE accomplishments before turning 30
~because age is just a number.  It doesn't define who you are as a person
~because that means I get to be crazy whenever I want and blame it on a mid-life crisis ;)
~because even though I'm turning 30, most of my friends are still older than me!!!
~because I don't feel like I'm 30!  I still think I'm fun, cool, and I definitely don't feel old at all
~because it's like being a fine wine....aged to perfection!!!
And for the most important reason.....
 ~because I love my life and wouldn't change a bit of it!!!!

Bring on a new decade!  The past 10 years have been amazing ones!  I can only imagine things getting better!!  I'm truly looking forward to what the Lord has planned for me and what the world has in store for me.

  12. It's definitely good to be 30! Welcome to the club. :) You've accomplished a lot before the age of 30 and you have so much more to look forward to! While I admit to having a total meltdown on my 30th birthday (it was ugly), ever since then, things have been amazing! I know what I want out of life now and I feel more comfortable in my own skin. It's definitely been the best time of my life, and I know you'll feel the same way.
