I woke up on my birthday not feeling happy but rather depressed. Made me sad to think that after this year I will no longer say I’m in my 20’s. Yes I realize that a lot of my friends are way past their 20’s and have embraced their age quite well but me on the other hand, I just felt sad. I’ve been 1 minus 30 for a couple of days now and I can already tell I’ve aged or perhaps I should say I’ve matured. Things that bothered me last week no longer seem important this week (True story).
I also realized today that for the past several years I have been missing out on a very important event, The Oscars. I have never ever been interested in watching them. In fact, I’ve always thought they were quite boring but today something changed. I woke up feeling excited about them and even made sure to watch it starting from the red carpet event, up until the very last award and performance presented. The jokes were actually funny and the speeches were actually touching. I cried and laughed several times during the show and all I kept thinking was, WOW! I am OLD!
Today I learned that being 1 minus 30 (I refused to say my age) isn’t so bad. I have great friends, I’m healthy but most importantly I have a beautiful family. I became an auntie for the first time this year to a gorgeous little boy and I have an amazing husband who loves me unconditionally. Life is great! So I’m going to embrace my age and I’m always going to remember just how lucky I am to live this life I’m living.
