Wow! Today I turn 38 years old. It feels like only yesterday I was celebrating my 21st birthday, but now I am knocking on 40’s door. Where did the time go?
I don’t feel 38 years old, that’s for sure!
I feel like I am stuck at 24 years old, the age I was when I met my husband. It is funny how your internal age just seems to stop, but you see yourself getting older, externally, each year. I can only imagine what my great granny must have thought as she looked in the mirror at her 97 year old self, especially since she once said she felt somewhere around 21-25 years old. She was an amazing woman, even in her old age. She used to say “you’re only as old as you feel”, so I guess I am still celebrating my 24th birthday.
I am not a big fan of celebrating my birthday though, and it is not because I am depressed about getting older. In my opinion, it is just like the day before or the day after. It is just an ordinary day. It feels nice to hear my family and friends wish me a happy birthday, but I can definitely do without a big celebration. I do not like being in the spotlight, at all, and that may be the reason why I am happy just going about the day as usual.
One thing I plan to do for my birthday this year is to write down my bucket list. I have some things I have added to my mental list, but I really need to take the time to pull out a pen and piece of paper and write it all down. One of the things I want to do someday is travel to Paris, so I can see the Eiffel Tower in person. I have wanted to see the Eiffel Tower my entire life, it is such a beautiful piece of architecture. Some other things I have always wanted to see is the Grand Canyon, Declaration of Independence, Liberty Bell, and the Statue of Liberty. My list goes on and on, so you can understand why I really need to write it all down.
I hope y’all have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog! 💜
