30 Years of Living...

Well, today is my 30th birthday.  I'll post more later regarding birthday festivities, but I've had this song in my head today so I thought I'd share.  I think Tim McGraw said it well (or Phil Vassar wrote the song apparently, so I guess he's the one that said it well)...

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 beers (*shouldn't be a problem, since I don't drink beer!)
Maybe I’ll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here, in my next thirty years
In my next thirty year.

I like this song, and I think it's a good look at life, especially on my 30th birthday!
