Birthday: the day of birth

31 Today was my official day of birth and as it has been for the past few years, the day mainly served as a day of reflection. A day for me to gather all my happy, sad, depressing, excited and hopeful, deep thoughts and stir them all together to reflect on life so far. Age and getting older is such a big deal for most people but I've never really thought that much about age until recently when society started telling me that my life is basically over. I think everyone has extremely high expectations about life and any plan that doesn't fall into place suddenly has us feeling like failures. This year I hope to finally let go of all the anxiety I've felt about where I "should be" in life and just be where I want to be. I have a few tricks up my sleeve so I hope this will be my life-changing year. I urge everyone to start forgetting about their age and just live. I mean, after all, it's not like any of us really act our age, right?...

P.S. This letter to myself on my birthday post I wrote a couple of years ago still applies...

  1. Happy belated birthday Victoria! We hope you had a lovely day! We agree with your post. While we may not be where society probably expects us to be approaching 30, we can't and wouldn't change what we've been up to the past few years!

    Best wishes and many happy returns!
