It is an entirely different feeling of anticipation between turning 21 and turning 30. Sometimes I can’t believe I’m all of 30 years old now. It sounds old but I like how comfortable I am in my own skin at this stage in life as compared to when I was 21.
I like that I no longer have the need to be liked by every one that I know.
I like that I don’t have that many friends now but those that I have now, are the ones that are for keeps.
I like that I have accepted that I can never wear certain designs of clothes because I have a pear-shaped body and a tummy pooch which will need some serious work after two pregnancies.
I like that people take me more seriously because I’m 30, married and with kids.
I like that I now know better to cherish and appreciate the good things in my life and to let go of the bad things that do not matter.
Now that the little family unit the husb and I created is complete with the arrivals of Thaddeus and Teanne, I am looking forward to life after 30 with them!
