My Last Year in my 30's....
Yes. Today is my birthday.
And unlike most people, I'm finding that as I am creeping closer and closer to the big 4-0, I don't really find the need to celebrate any longer.
Sure, dinner and a few phone calls are nice. Birthday greetings on facebook are fun too. But I just don't get as excited about my birthday like I used too.
Is that normal?
I think since getting married I've started to look at things a lot differently...especially age. When my mom was 39, I was in high school. She was 40 when I graduated from high school. And ironically, that is the age that I still see my mom. As 40.
Actually, my mom is 60. The age that I still see my grandfather. He's actually in his early 80's. How is that possible?
So, it's hard to think about the fact that I'm getting older.
I can't stop it. The clock just ticked over to a new year on my body and there is no going back.
Does anyone else feel this way?
Am I the only one?
