Oprah on being thirty-something in America

Filed under: Just For Moms, Medical Conditions, That's Entertainment

Today's episode of Oprah focuses on being 30-something in America today. From the impossibility of finding a date, to the impossibility of getting pregnant. Kind of makes me want to dig up some old episode of Thirty-Something and compare being three decades old in the nineties to the issues we face now.

It looks like the episode will cover what it's like to be 30 in different cultures. The show will also follow a day-in-the-life of a thirty-something mother of eight, aged 19-3. Be sure to tune in.

Personally, at 32 I feel content. Though career-wise I'm not quite where I thought I would be, I finally feel comfortable in my own skin. I care a lot less what others think of me. I no longer have time to obsess over mirrors and scales. I have eliminated a lot of the people and things that weighed me down in my twenties and finally feel like I've a found a good balance. But I can't help but worry about the pleas of my single girlfriends that there are no good men left, or the struggles of friends who are trying to conceive.

What are some of the issues you face today as a woman in your 30s?
