    Oh, it's WAY better from here on out! I loved my 30s, and so far, I'm loving my 40s!

    I'm so comfortable in my own skin now, much more so than I was in my 20s. I know who I am and what I want... it's fantastic. :)

    Happy Birthday, 1stGradeRocks!

    If it's all downhill from 30, I must be far underground by now! Don't worry about a number.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

    Are you kidding??? My life STARTED after I turned 30!!

    I got married to a wonderful guy.
    We bought our house.
    I switched schools to the one that has been my home away from home since 1987.
    I adopted my son, and gave birth to my daughters. (All after the 40 year old mark, by the way)
    I've made some incredibly strong friendships that have helped me over all the bumps in life.
    As bandnerd said, I'm far more comfortable in my own skin than I was in my 20's.

    You're just entering the prime of your life!!! Enjoy it!

    Happy Birthday!

    I have more confidence in my 30's than I did in my 20's. I also attacked every problem with the same high passion whereas now I am choosier and wiser about how I attack those problems.

    I admit that now that I'm 37, NOW I'm starting to worry about the vanity side of getting older. Lol. I didn't care that I turned 30.

    My 30s have been GREAT! Confidence and self-comfort ... no more of that dumb girl I was in my 20s!

    My 30s were amazing! I felt shackled of expectations of all these things I needed to do before that age. When they didn't happen, I felt free. They DID all happen before I turned 40, but I'm still having a great time in this new decade.

    I'm in my 30s & the hugest things in life are occurring for me in this decade & hopefully bigger things are to come. I wish these things had occurred in my 20s, but oh well! Honestly, I wish I could redo my 20s, while having the things I have now. The main thing going on then was I was attending school & didn't have what one would call a career, just jobs.

    Happy birthday & enjoy!

    Happy Birthday!

    No advice because I have a few more (precious) months before I turn 30.

    My 30th birthday year was awful, but that was because I was dealing with a serious illness. So, after a completely sucky couple of years, it was all up. My 40's have been awesome!

    Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I've had a wonderful day so far. :) Maybe 30 isn't so bad even though I haven't accomplished everything in life I thought I would by this time...

    For months after my 30th birthday, I told people I was "29 and holding."

    Bah. Holding for what? My 30s have been very kind to me so far :hugs:

    My 30's were far better than my 20's,and my 40's were even better than my 30's. I am looking forward to my 50's!
    Every day I wake up is a blessing from above...
