Happy Birthday to Me


So, today is my 30th Birthday.  Yes, this one time only, I am going to admit it.  After today, I go back to being 25.  For at least 5 more years, or until I decide that the 30s is a decent age to be.


I have never really liked changing decades.  It seems that entering a new decade brings you into a new set of cultural expectations that I am not sure I am really ready for.  My husband, on the other hand, is really hoping that “sexual peak” rumors are true.


I wonder if I am where I thought I would be at 30.  Let’s take a quick inventory:

   I am married (check)

   I have two kids (check, check)

  They are 2 boys (hmm, kinda thought I’d have one of each, so check, buzz)

  I work full time in a career that I really love (check)

  I have a house (check) that is paid for (buzz)

  I have retirement savings (buzz, must work on this)

  I traveled to Europe (buzz)

  I support, with my time, energy & dollars a cause that I am passionate about (buzz, sadly)

I am healthy (check)

I am joyful (check)

I have a creative outlet (semi-buzz, I have the supplies, not the time!)


So, overall, I thought I would be successful at: family, job, some travel, financially comfortable, and be making a difference in the wider world.  I am clearly not there yet, so I guess I know what I will be working on in my 30s!


Maybe this won’t be so bad after all……
