Happy Birthday to Me!

Its official, today I enter new decade of my life (sigh.) I actually don't feel as bad as I thought I would. In retrospect, I think I actually felt worse when I turned 29. Turning 29 signaled the end of my twenties and that not only made me feel sad, but I felt some pressure to milk the last year for all it was worth.
Now that I'm officially 30 I feel as if I am entering a wonderful new decade of my life. My twenties were a lot of fun, but at times there was great uncertainty. The first half of my twenties I was just trying to figure myself out and get used to the idea of truly being an adult. While I still might have occasional bouts of immaturity, I am far more comfortable in my adult skin then I was when I turned 20.
I'm looking forward to the next ten years. I think I'm actually a little excited to see what is to be learned and experienced on the road ahead.
Besides, it's foolish to get upset about getting older. After all, its better then the alternative.

    Happy Birthday :) I hope you enjoy this day and night to the best of your abillity. I'm fast approaching 37, about 6 weeks away and am finally learning how to be an adult. By the time I get it figured out, I'll be too old to care.
    Thankyou for your visit to my blog. I appreciated you comment more than you know. Take care of yourself, and have fun!

    Happy belated birthday!! I never expected anyone to actually read my blog (I just kind of do it when I get bored), but thanks. I have never been to Chicago and even though we have some windy days, I am sure our weather in no way compares to the Windy City's. I live in a suburb town outside of Reno. We get snow during the winter, but we're near records...so, a couple feet of snow is a big deal around here. Anyway, I hope I can age as gracefully and fearlessly as you (I can be terrible with words and NO, 30 is not old...I'm NOT calling you old! ;) ). Congratulations!!
