I just wanted to re-introduce myself. I used to be on the ivillage boards in the early 2000's and I am so glad the community is still active. I turned 30 last year and I felt like I stepped right into myself. Saying No to things I didn't want to do or be apart of became so easy all of a sudden and I just took life by the balls and sqeezed, lol. I just wanted to ask others how they felt when they stepped into their 30's? Has it been as empowering for you as it has been for me? Do you find that you aint taking "no sh*t" and your going to run your race and live your life or has it be harder? My 20's were a roller coaster of unfulling work and relationships and I was glad to say goodbye to those years!
