Okay so it is my birthday, 43 …..another year older.
It’s funny, I don’t feel any different then when I was in my 30’s. Sometimes I catch my reflection in a mirror and think ‘who’s that looking back at me?’. When did the laughter lines multiply and whats with the dark circles under the eyes….ok so while I’m in the region of the eyes – what’s with the saggy skin!!!!
I don’t think I am particularly vain nor am I concerned about growing older…just not right now. I want to feel old before I look older. There are some good things to be said for aging. I feel that I am in a very happy place right now. I like who I am and what I do and I think the hardest years are behind me – I guess it is true what they say ‘With age comes wisdom’. I wish we knew in our 20’s what we know in our 40’s. Would I make the same mistakes if I did – probably!!
My friend sent me this message in an email and I think it was the perfect pick me up for the birthday blues this morning.
Consider special people
Think about the memories
Another year is a happy gift,
