How Do You Feel About Getting Older?

Credit: jerine

So, it’s official. I’m 30! And, really, despite a few moments of sadness that my crazy 20s are over, I’m happy to be in a decade that I hear only makes you more confident in your own skin. I’m all for that! With all the sage advice I’ve received over the past week about entering this new decade, I wondered what your thoughts are on aging, not matter how many years of “experience” you have!

    I’m definitely MUCH happier now at 41 than I was in my 20’s and even in my 30’s. And while there are days I miss certain things about being in my 20’s (hello, faster metabolism!), I wouldn’t go back for anything.

  2. I just turned 30 on the 16th, at first i was scared however I am okay with it, it actually feels great being 30, so far this year has been awesome. 🙂

    Hey Ladies !

    I’m 26 but have no qualms about turning 30, 40, 50 or even 60 🙂
    Why ?
    Because my Granny and Aunt look fabulous for 5 and 60 😉

    My Granny is 85 and my Aunt is 60 😉

    “hear, hear!” for happiness at 41! there have definitely been some trying times in recent years, but being “older” has definitely given me the tools i’ve needed to deal with them, and i find i’m just generally more appreciative of things and have a far lesser tendency to let things bother me.

    Ah what perfect timing for this post! My 30th is on Tuesday and I have been DREADING it. Milestone birthday always make me stop and take stock of where I am, and I have been feeling like I haven’t done enough. I am trying to shift my thoughts though and focus on all I have accomplished and set new goals. Happy Birthday!
