So 12th November 2016 marked my 25th birthday and I honestly don’t think I have ever felt older! I’m officially half way to 50.
I was always the type of person who really enjoyed my birthdays and was always excited. This year was completely different, I wasn’t interested at all. Maybe thats part of getting old?
When I was a teen I always thought I would have my life together by now. I’d be married, have children, own my own home – I haven’t done any of these and to be honest I’m glad. I still live at home and I’m not married, nor do I have children but I’m happy. I no longer want to wish my life away, I’m just enjoying taking every day as it comes and do you know what it’s a nice way to live. Of course it’s great to have dreams, I know I still do but I’m no longer going to worry about what’s ahead of me. It’s all about living in the moment.
My biggest achievement in the year was passing my driving test. At the start of 2016 I said I wanted to drive before I was 25, I didn’t think I would do it. Look at me now, driving around in my little citroen c3 loving life.
I have also decided I want to travel and see the world. My first destination is going to be America! New York and Florida to be precise. I have always wanted to go to these places but it felt like a dream that was never going to happen. I’m very lucky and I have a boyfriend who is willing to take me to these places and make my dreams come true. He truly is amazing and I’m happy to say I’ve found my forever human.
So here’s to the next 25 years, living each day as it comes. Loving life.
