Typically, there’s a ton of anticipation around turning 30 — but what about turning 29? This birthday is arguably even more special, since it marks the end of an adventurous chapter of your life. The last decade has likely treated you to a lot of personal growth. During this time, you may have lived in another country while studying abroad in college, graduated from your university, moved to a new city, met the love of your life, or even started a family. It’s time to celebrate all you’ve done and will still do with a post on social media and these 29th birthday quotes.

Truthfully, it can be hard to shake the feeling of getting older. But you should try your best not to fear the unknown that the future holds. Each decade is beautifully unique in its own way, and you have a lot to look forward to in your 30s. You’ll likely spend the next 10 years of your life growing even more, and having experiences that’ll shape you as a person. On your 29th birthday, you owe it to yourself to reflect on your 20s by writing in a journal, and celebrate your biggest milestones with your favorite people.

This celebration could be as exciting as a night out with your besties, or as chill as a romantic night in with your SO and a bottle of wine. Either way, make sure to post a photo dump of your 20s on Instagram, and share your thoughts on turning the big two-nine. These 29th birthday quotes will help capture your feelings, and cue the confetti.
