It’s My Birthday and It Feels Strange

It’s my birthday today, and it feels strange. My birthday is always a huge deal for me. I always have something planned whether big or small. I always tell everyone “IT”S MY BIRTHDAY!” I am always pumped about celebrating another year of the amazing life I live. Being born even if things have been rough for me, is a huge deal. With that pain and struggle, I learned more than I could have ever imagined. I would never trade my life for something else. So, celebrating my birthday is always an exciting and fantastic time for me.

This year though is different. I don’t know if it is because I turned 30 today or because of something else. I haven’t reminded anyone that it’s my birthday today. It’s not that I don’t want to because I do. Something inside me is telling me to stay quiet this year. I am not sure why and I know I will find out. It is funny because I am going to start my 30s off with a trip to the dentist, new filling and cleaning. I am actually looking forward to having a chill birthday at the dentist.

I can say, I feel good about where my 30s will take me. My 20s were all about overcoming parts of myself that needed growing. My 30s will be about creating the dream life I deserve. I am more than thrilled to see where I end up when I turn 40!

Who has ever felt this way for a birthday? Anyone love their birthday before then turn 30 and everything changes? Let me know in the comments how you celebrate your birthday and your feelings toward it. I would love to know!
