My thoughts on Turning 30

I am turning 30 today. Some people dread turning the big 3-0. I am not one of them. Maybe it is because I do not spend my time dwelling on the perceived bad things that come with 30. Instead I choose to look at all the great things that come with turning 30. It helps me to embrace 30 instead of dread it.

Here are my 30 reasons why turning 30 rocks:

  1. I get to check a new age group box on forms.
  2. I get to say, “I remember when I was in my 20s”.
  3. It is a milestone birthday.
  4. It is more exciting to say “I am 30″ than “I am 29 or 31″
  5. More exciting to blog for a week about your 30th birthday.
  6. I get 10 years to prepare for turning 40.
  7. I get to take the time to look at a new vision for my 30s.
  8. I have stopped trying to find myself and started creating myself.
  9. I get to start anew in my new age range.
  10. I have great experiences from my past and so now I get to add new ones!
  11. I can celebrate BIG for this birthday.
  12. I have years to get use to being called mamm.
  13. When I get carded it is a compliment instead of them not thinking I am old enough.
  14. All the life lessons I learned in my 20s, I can now apply to my life.
  15. Don’t have to worry about being 30 because I just AM.
  16. Get to read all the self help books about surviving your 30’s and nod in agreement with them.
  17. Do not have to do it alone since many of my friends and my niece are turning 30 with me.
  18. A major birthday like 30 means better presents!
  19. If I have learn nothing else from Desperate Housewives, 40 is the new 30 and 30 is the new 20.
  20. People naturally take you more seriously when you are in your 30s.
  21. You get to smile when people can not believe you are 30.
  22. No longer have to struggle to be an adult because you have years of practice.
  23. 5 more years and I can be president.
  24. Instead of stressing about only acne, I can stress about wrinkles and white hair along with the acne.
  25. When I was younger 30 was OLD, now I feel 30 is young.
  26. Don’t I wait for Santa to bring me a wii, I can go get my own.
  27. I maybe turning 30 but I will still always be the youngest in my family.
  28. Turning 30 makes you appreciate your 20’s and look forward to your 40s.
  29. There is only on option to not turning 30, that is death. I say, “Welcome 30"
