Poll: How do I feel about turning 30?

Well, last week when I put the poll up there I felt a certain way and this week I feel a little differently. You are only as old as you feel? This is do believe in. I don't feel old, I feel overweight, but mentally I don't feel any older and certainly do not act a heck of a lot older. Although I don't know what feeling 30 is supposed to be like. If I act 20 then I guess I could stay feeling 20. Although when I was 20 a McD's chicken nugget meal didn't attach itself to my belly the way it does now....so how loaded was that answer? Never been happier? This is definitely true. One thing that comes with age is confidence. The more years on earth, the more one does, the more experience one has and more things one has time to accomplish. And accomplish by my standards means to accept yourself for who you are and use yourself as the gauge. I look inward for acceptance far more often than I look outward I believe that is more important. I am the most happy I've ever been with myself and my life than I've ever been. This might explain the cranky mood I've been in? YES. I was certainly dreading this day. I worried about and allowed it to bother me and therefore I was cranky and sad. The actual day came and went and was a blast with a Tom Petty concert, my friends, my son, my family and my hubby. The next day was even better with more family and a party and then dinner with more friends last night proved that I am now 30 and loving it! It will only get better from here on out and that's the positive attitude that will keep me young at heart and happy. If I could lost the weight I'd be golden!

I'm a bad friend- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I'm with you, you are only as old as you feel! Although, I did try to do a backbend the other day, and then got so confident to try and do a backwalkover, not a good idea...I did not feel so young then.
