30's Eve

Well here I am in my final hours of my twenties. I am not panicking or overly sad at the fact that the days of blaming dumb actions on being "young and dumb" are over. I am not going to do anything drastic out of a serge of desperation to prove I am still the same woman I was 5 or 10 years ago. Blogging about it (and possibly several facebook posts) will be the extent of my desperate acts.

I actually have no desire to be the woman I was 10 years ago. My boobs may beg to differ but I am ok with their new lower location so their opinion doesn't count. I am glad to be over the selfish, worried about society's opinion of me stage. I like that I have finally reached an age that I am confident in who I am. I have enough life experience in things to be able to trust my own judgement and I like being enough years older than my sister that I can torture her with phrases like "when I was your age"

Now don't get me wrong I am not going to be up at 12 tonight cheering at the fact that I am one year closer to colonoscopies and dentures. I am just saying I am not going to be up pulling my hair in pigtails doing body shots as a last ditch effort to retrieve a feeling of being 21 (maybe pigtails was a bad example but you get the point). Chances are I will be asleep when 30 brings itself to my life tonight but before I go to sleep I will look at the blessings that my twenties brought me like my 3 beautiful children, my wonderful husband, my home, my animals etc and I will be grateful. So even though I feel a little sadness when I reflect on the days that are gone. I can't help but be excited about what lies ahead!
