Today is my birthday. 39 years young 🙂
Someone asked me this morning if I dread getting older. I replied back heck no! To me age is the great leveler. The older I get the more I actually feel like I can relate to people. I have always been an old soul but burying parents, struggling to have a child and otherwise growing up way before my peers has made me feel different. It is hard to relate to people when they complain that their parents won’t pay this for them or they complain about their parents not watching their kids when my parents weren’t even there for the birth of my son and never will be there for him. I am a strong person but yes it gets hard and some days I struggle with it. So yes, I am loving getting older. Every year makes me feel less different and the wisdom that comes with age is pretty nice too.
Brian’s birthday was yesterday. He made a cake for both of us. It was delicious and I am sure to have another piece today. Lol. He truly has become a master in the kitchen and I am so lucky to have him in my life. We are going out just the two of us Friday night. It will be nice to get away for a few hours and enjoy a nice dinner.
This next year will be a big one. Transitioning out of one decade into another. Lots of changes. But regrets about getting older? Not here. Not here.
