It's really not that bad!


















I didn't think it was possible, but it's true.... {I'm 30 today} .... and it's feeling pretty okay! As I mentioned in previous posts, I have been dreading this day for a while, but here I am and I'm not feeling anything like I thought I would!

So, here goes... I'm saying good-bye to my twenties and welcoming my thirties with open arms!

Here's a quote by Robert Heinlein in Stranger in a Strange Land that I think we all need to hear:

"Anyone can see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl she used to be. A great artist can look at an old woman, portray her exactly as she is...and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be...more than that, he can make anyone see that this lovely young girl is still alive, prisoned inside her ruined body. He can make you feel the quiet, endless tragedy that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart...no matter what the merciless hours have done. (just for reading that, minus 11 years)!

















Oh, by the way... what's this {Dirty Thirties Club} that I keep hearing about? Where did that name come from?














... to me! xo.
