But I turned 30.
It seemed (at the time) like a huge unwelcome milestone.
But I have learned to accept it. In fact, I'm determined to embrace it.
Life needs to be embraced and enjoyed.
Yes there are trials, yes there are things you don't want to have to deal with or do, yes there are ages you don't want to turn, there will always be adversity.
I have learned in my thirty years on this earth that things are always better if we choose to be happy.
In fact, its my new mantra.
CHOOSE to be happy.
Its a choice, and its one that I want to make.
So, though I may not like it, I'm going to choose to be happy to be 30.
Its really no different, plus there really isn't anything I can do about it anyway- so why not embrace it and enjoy it?
If I were to choose, I would choose happy.
So, here is to a happy year going forward.
