So This is What 30 Feels Like

8:00 AM

The cake my mom made for me!

You know what? It doesn't feel any different than 29. In fact, it feels better. I woke up this morning as a 30 year old. I thought I would dread it, but it feels great! It is like I get to start over with a whole new decade of my life and the possibilities are endless. My 20's kind of stunk. I was married young while still a teenager to someone who ended up being abusive and who used drugs. I struggled, I dug in my heels and it wasn't until the end of my 20's that I started to pull things together and really do well. Now, at 30, things look amazing and I cannot wait to see what lies ahead!

How did you feel when you turned 30? If you are still a youngster, are you looking forward to 30 or dreading it?

  1. I was ok with 30... I think I'm going to have a problem with 31. Thankfully it falls on Mother's Day so hopefully I'll be getting spoiled too much to realize. ;)

  3. I freaked a little back in March when I turned 30 but now I have settled into it. I freak out more that my next big milestone birthday is 40! YIKES!
    I am glad that I'm done with all of the 20's stuff like having kids, buying a house, etc...I'm ready for what comes next.

  4. You're still young at 30! It's the big 40 creeping up on me that is freaking me out.

  5. Nope, I had a slight crisis at age 30. After that, I was fine, but 30 was bad, bad, bad. Happy Birthday!

  10. I had my crisis at 25. The rest have been easy peasy, and 35 feels like 30. Now, 36 on the other hand, which is looming, may not feel so great.

  13. Happy Late Birthday! And, I promise they only get better. If the 50s are the new 30s, then the 30s are like the teens. :-D

  16. I'm 28, almost 29, and I'm nervous about 30. Part of me is excited, another part wants to cry.

  18. Happy Birthday! 30 is still quite far for me so I haven't given it much thought- it's definitely not old though so I'm not too worried! :)

  19. Happy very belated birthday! I'm not liking my 30's. I swear my body saw 30 and decided to fall apart. I hear 40 is better.
