Pushing 30

So today I had a moment during my day where I was like, "Oh my goodness, I am going to be 30 in seven months." I am not sur whether to be sad about this or happy. I mean, turning 30 is better than the alternative of not seeing 30, right? I am trying to remain positive about this. But for some reason turning 30 feels like I have to be a "real grown up." My husband asked me if I want to have a big party or keep it small, or at all. Not sure what to do about that. Eeeekkkk! I guess I just needed to get that out there! confused

It's no big deal, I'm 53 (pronounced twenty nine) and I have done nothing but improve with age.

30 is creeping up on me too. I feel the same way. I feel like I'm losing my youthful glow , starting to notice aging lol it sounds crazy but I'm dreading my 30th b day.

I turned 30 last week. My 20s were filled with finding myself and insecurity. I'm thrilled to start my 30s with confidence and sure of the person I am. It just took me 30 years to get this happy and healthy

I am going on 38 this year, and when I turned 30, I was diagnosed with cancer. I'm in remission, and the doctor told me that I am doing good

I'll be 30 in October and I feel the same way. I was on facebook the other day, and an old friend was wishing her little brother happy birthday. He was maybe 6 the last time I saw him (my friend changed schools and we lost touch), so I clicked his profile to see how the little guy was doing. He's in his 20's now and looks like an underwear model! I feel so OLD.

Eh, its just a number. Whether you like it or not doesn't change the fact that we all have to age.
