i am offically 27. TWENTY SEVEN.
i feel like i've been on a roller coaster approaching this age. a couple of months ago, i would get really bad anxiety about turning 27. i mean, there were times i could not sleep because all i could think about was THREE YEARS TILL THIRTY. not even 27...just three years till 30. i just felt so weird. i have pretty much felt weird about every birthday after 21. Another year older, Another year of not being happy where I am with life, Another year closer till 30....
WELL FOLKS, I'M ABOUT TO GET ALL POSI ON YOU.
i guess about a month ago, i had this revelation. here it is:
jan 1st is the start of the new year. however...our birthdays are really the start of OUR personal new year. i decided that i was going to embrace my birthday and feel fab. i got my hair done, started a little workout regime, and got new glasses all before today. i honestly can say, i'm really okay with being 27. AND, you know what? next year, I will look back on 27 and be like "I was so young! I wish I was 27 again..." so you might as well embrace the age you are..because you will miss it come next year or the year after.
i am looking forward to my birthday being on a friday and having the WHOLE weekend off. that is right. no work. no pets. no clients. i am looking forward to spending a full weekend with anthony. the best gift really is time. time with your favorite people...oh, and maybe some wine.
..they say that you're only as old as you feel...and i feel around 24.
