Turning 30

Tomorrow I am turning 30.  Lots of people have asked me how I feel about it.  Honestly, I am totally fine with it.  I have a house, a husband, two kids and a good career.  That's more than normal for 30.  I'm cool with it.

But I remember when I was turning 20 and I had a really rough time with that.  That was when I first realized that I would be ordinary and not extraordinary.  I wasn't going to be famous or win the Nobel Peace Prize.  I was just going to be regular.  It took 10 years, but I'm cool with that too.  Regular is pretty spectacular when you hear a two year old say "I love you Mommy!"
