5 words of wisdom on turning 30

Today (May 10) is my 30th birthday! I used to think 30 seemed so daunting and "old". Now, I feel like my early twenties seems so far away, and I am connecting more with a 30-year old version of myself than a 20-year old version. I am a happier person heading into this new decade, and I'm not feeling the anxiety that I thought I would.

I saved a bunch of posts on turing 30 from a variety of writers and bloggers I admire and have re-read them this past week. This article on the Huffington Post was particularly awesome. I decided to do something similar and ask select friends & family to share something about turning 30 or being in their thirties, in just 5 words. It could be a short sentence, adjectives, wisdom, etc.

Here's what they came back with:
(I really need to be more diligent about eye cream!)

From these words, it's going to be a good decade filled with success, comfort, and happiness - works for me!  

PS: Happy Mother's Day to my mom!
