Thoughts on Thirty
I was talking with a friend last night about aging. She mentioned the amount of people that look back on time past wishing they had done this or that. Since my birthday I've been thinking retrospectively as well, but instead of "I wish"es, I've been thinking about all the things I've been able to accomplish (especially in the last 10 years). I don't regret a thing about my station in life! Sure, I don't own a home, and my husband is still a student, but with those things have come so many fun and exciting experiences. I will never regret that I was older than most of my friends when I married, or that I was older when I had Aspen.
I don't feel older, but I do feel that 50 is looking younger and younger, and realize that boy, life really does fly. One day I really will be old, and when that day comes I want to know that I enjoyed every point in my life, with no regrets. I want the next 10 years to be as exciting as the last (although I wouldn't mind having adventures in my own house)!
