In My Next Thirty Years

For the past couple of years, I have really dreaded this day.
Today is my 30th birthday.
But I've decided that it's something I shouldn't have dreaded at all. I'm actually looking forward to my thirties! I see great opportunities ahead, and am excited to tackle the challenges as well. I like how Tim's song sums it up - I've highlighted (or changed) some of the more important points that stand out to me today:
I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it’s time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years
Hey my next thirty years I’m gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I’ve done
Maybe now I’ve conquered all my adolescent fears
And I’ll do it better in my next thirty years
My next thirty years I’m gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I’m doing here
In my next thirty years
Oh my next thirty years,
I’m gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many [Root]-beers
Maybe I’ll remember my next thirty years
My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise [my] little family and hang out with my [husband]
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here,
In my next thirty years.
