age strides
I just posted a comment to something in antibride about being glad I'm not in my twenties anymore. And I am -- my twenties sucked, and thirty had nowhere to go but up.

My thirties have not been without their drama, that's for sure, but in the last three years, I feel like I've started to hit my stride. I've found my voice, and honestly, I think LJ had a lot to do with that. I've written more in the past year than I think I did all through college, and I was an English major. (Didn't help that my asshole boyfriend kept reading my journal. Now I pretty much don't care, but then...)

It just feels so damn good that I can sometimes help people with my posts, and sometimes make them laugh. It's almost enough to make me not fear forty.

AMEN TO THAT!

The only thing I miss about my twenties is the ability to function without sleep. Other than that my twenties were less than memorable - I don't remember really DOING anything. Since turning 30 I've met the man of my dreams, bought a house, got married, had one awesome kid and have another on the way. I no longer even recognize the person I was in my twenties.

Thirties rock!

I miss the body I had, but I don't miss the person I was. I like me much, much better now.

Oh to have the metabolism of a twenty year old again! OK, two things I miss about my twenties. I forgot about the body.
