First of all I would like to wish everyone an awesome weekend. Lucky me. I am having weekend with the rest of the world this time too. A week ago on the 20th of February I turned 31. I have been thinking about this number and I would like to share my feelings with you.
A year ago when I turned 30, it was a special moment for me. I mean. The big 3-0. That’s something right? I left my twenties and now I am officially in my thirties. If I go back 10 years. I would have pictured my life completely different at 30 then it is today. I always thought that when I was 30 I would be married and maybe already have a baby. Well. I turned 31 and no marriage, no boyfriend and definitely no baby.
I had people asking me how I feel about turning 31 while having non of the above. I guess people expect that when you turn a certain age you have to be in a particular stage of your life. My answer to that is very simple. Although I turned 31 I still feel exactly the same as when I was 26. I’m healthy and happy with my life. I have the dream job I wanted for a long time. I have my friends and family who I love and appreciate every day. What else do I need?
Yes. Someday I am hoping to bump into Mr. Right. But for now. I am perfectly happy with life as it is. And let’s not forget. Growing older is a gift. A gift denied to so many people. That’s why I celebrate my birthday every single year. I will never regret growing older. It’s a blessing. Age to me is just a number. In my mind I will feel 21 forever 😉
The only thing that’s different is that I started to use an anti wrinkle cream and I am watching my diet much better than I used to. I am taking much better care of my skin and health in general. I want to grow older, but I would like to look young and stay healthy as long as possible!
How do you feel or felt about leaving your twenties? Let me know in the comments below!
