Just Celebrate!

Tomorrow I turn 30.  I hear lots of comments on aging all the time.  Most of them are of dread.  I know lots of people who have turned 30 and more who see that birthday fast approaching.  “Don’t remind me!” they say.  But I don’t get it.  Yes, I am getting older, but isn’t that much better then the alternative?  If you aren’t getting older, you are dead to put it bluntly.

In my opinion, old and young are relevant terms that serve a purpose at times, but aren’t necessary or accurate in categorizing yourself on a whole. Age is just a record keeping number.  Now, with age comes things that people dislike, such as wrinkles, slower metabolisms, and aching bodies, and I do understand a dislike for those things, but the number of years you have been alive should be a celebration every.single.year!

Getting older is a BIG deal, and YOU should celebrate it! Each birthday, no matter what number is attached to it, is a blessing!  I am excited to be 30 and to GET to celebrate it.  My life is full of so many blessings I can’t even begin to list them.  Sure, there are things in it and about it I do not love, but I am choosing to celebrate today!

{I have to take a minute and brag on these gorgeous pictures we had done a few weeks ago.  Samantha Daniels Photography did them for us.  I told her I wanted her to capture our relationships and she did just that!}

So here’s to another year, and I hope many many more!  I hope the next time you have a birthday you will do the same, and just simply celebrate your life!
