I'm turning 30 in 2011
As 2010 closes, I can’t stop thinking about my impending 30th birthday in 2011.
That’s right the BIG 3-0, and while I LOVE every birthday and make every effort to enjoy each one to its fullest - this one seems rather pivotal.
Maybe even a milestone.
Sure, I could be making a bigger deal out of my 30th birthday than necessary.
But why not?
I will officially be considered an Adult.
An Adult adult, if you know what I mean.
No more using “I’m in my 20’s” as an excuse for not knowing what I want to do with my life. That is what the 20’s are for, right? - to figure life out. The 30’s are for doing that which I discovered.
Did you know 30 is the average age of retirement for NFL players?
Maybe this is why I’m so scared. I’m supposed to be an Adult now. We are told to act our age when we are five, and now I feel like I’m supposed to listen.
But, I don't want to fear 3-0. I want to embrace it and experience life to it's fullest in my 30's, just like I did with my 20's. I want to laugh harder, love deeper and experience life more than I ever have before.
