Pushing Thirty

Ok, the time is getting closer. It seems like yesterday I was turning eighteen, or twenty-one, then twenty-five. Where has the time gone?

So much has happened over the last several years, and now here I am pushing thirty. Wow! I'm really turning thirty. I think back to high school and the years that followed, and wonder to myself if anyone else had or has these same feelings. Is thirty that big of a deal? It's just a number right?

On my birthday last year I told everyone that I would just continue to have "Happy 29 Again" birthdays. I have since changed my mind.

I have been through so much in my lifetime. To be honest the things I've dealt with are more than most 30 year-olds. I have earned every gray hair (ok so I did find a few, but they are now a shade of brown!) and every frown line or wrinkle. I have earned the stretch marks, the scars, and the bruises. I have earned the tears, broken hearts, laughter, and smiles. I have been on one heck of a ride, and have somehow always been ok. God has always guided me through.

I may not be where I want to be in life. I may not be in the career I dreamed of or live the lifestyle I envisioned for myself. I'm fine with that though! I have come so far and I am proud of who I am! I am a wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, and friend. I am loving , caring,  loyal, creative and unique. I am proud of these things. I am proud of who I am. I am proud to turn thirty!

So no, I will not have another "Happy 29 Again" birthdays. I'm thirty! I earned my stripes. My life is far from over. Thirty is the beginning! I am starting an entirely new chapter in my life! A chapter filled with excitement, love, and bright beginnings. The countdown has begun. I'm ready for all the wonderful new things that thirty will bring! I'm ready for change!
