Turning 30

Today I am turning the dreaded 3-OH (sorry about the last post--I think I alluded to the fact my birthday was Saturday, but it wasn't. But thanks for the early birthday wishes! They are much appreciated!).

I thought I would feel worse about it than I do. I've been dreading it for the past 2 years. After much discussion with my friends about not wanting to head into my 30's, I have concluded that it is what it is. I can't change that I am now 30. I can't go back in time and change my life. And I wouldn't want to anyway.

I am blessed in my life. I have a great family, an amazing husband, incredible friends, a roof over my head, an interesting job, and a God that loves me and never leaves me. What do I have to complain about? Nothing.

So what if I have kissed my 20s goodbye? They had their time, and I while I loved my 20s, I have hope that my 30s are going to be even better.

Happy Birthday!!! If it makes you feel better, you don't look 30 at all! You still look 22-24 in my opinion and you're beautiful!!!

Funny, cause I was totally listening to my beloved Frank Sinatra cd this morning on my way to work and the very song that I played was entitled "Young at Heart"

It's not how old you are, it's how old you feel, right?!

=)

Here's to many more years filled with fun, joy and fulfillment!!

And based on your attitude and gratitude alone, you know that your 30's will only continue to be better! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Sarah! I promise, your thirties will be wonderful. I'm only 31 and I've loved my thirties thus far. It's really a passage into more wisdom and far more peace! Embrace it and own it and love it as much as you can. (I had a harder time with 25 for some reason, but looking back, I don't miss 25 AT ALL.)
Have a great birthday!

Hey Sarah,
Happy belated birthday! My worst birthday by far was when I turned 25. I remember an Oil of Olay commercial in which the lady said something like, "Now that I am over 25, I use Oil of Olay moisturizer every day." I saw that at about eight or nine years old and decided that 25 was the start of old age! 37 was much harder than turning 40 this year. I really started living at 30, so I cannot say enough about the wonderful decade you have just entered into. I pray that Jesus would give you the deepest desire of your heart soon. The best is yet to come! Shawn
