In My Next Thirty Years


I think I'll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it's time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years.

In my next thirty years, I'm gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I've done
Maybe now I've conquered all my adolescent fears
And I'll do it better in my next thirty years.

In my next thirty years I'm gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more . . .


. . . Figure out just what I'm doing here,
In my next thirty years.

Happy Birthday Sarah!

I thought turning 30 was pretty good. I found myself being comfortable in my skin and able to stare down people like plumbers and mechanics that I'd previously allowed to patronise me.

Happy 30th.

Happy birthday and welcome to the club!

I like your attitude about it! When I turned 30, I was a little sad because I thought something was supposed to happen. Like leaving my 20's behind and becoming an "adult". Turns out that happened when I was 28, the age I had my son. Once I realized that (took about a year), I started to love my 30's!

Because you now know who you are your next 30 will be more fabulous than you can imagine.

Happy Birthday! I love getting older. With each year I seem to be more comfortable in my own skin, and it seems like the little things are more capable of bringing me great happiness.

There's still a lot I haven't figured out though.

I hope you do something you enjoy this weekend. Tell some old stories.

Take care,
muddy

Thank you, everyone, for your kind b-day wishes! I agree with those of you who mentioned that your 30's involve a greater degree of self-assurance and comfort. While I'm only a few days into this decade, I feel like I'm home :)
