I say- "Nothing is the new 20!" And that is okay. A year ago if someone had asked me what I would be doing the night before my 30th birthday I would have said, "If I have not taken my own life I will be drunk, crying on the kitchen floor." BUT- that is not the case anymore. Don't get me wrong- I am not super-happy about the middle-agey way I feel. However, I am not flying into hysterics every time I think about turning 30 tomorrow. (Although I have gasped once or twice today when I remembered tomorrow is the 9th of July.)
A year ago I set some goals for my 30th birthday and I've pretty much met them all. I blogged about it here. Goals include:
1. Take care of major medical problem.-- CHECK
2. Establish better prayer life routine.-- CHECK
3. Pay more attention to marriage.-- CHECK
4. Discipline my children in all areas of their lives.-- CHECK
5. Reach 125 pounds.-- CHECK
I also added the goal of becoming debt free. This could not be achieved by my birthday but we are well on our way!
All in all I am very pleased w/ the state of my affairs at this time. If you are going to turn 30 you might as well have your ducks in a row! Get you life together- you are going to get old anyway! I have made this last year all about me... I honestly think everyone in my home has benefited from that decision. Now- as for actually telling people that I am 30 years old. I'll think about that tomorrow. Excuse me while I go open a Smirnoff. Peace!
