Twenty – eight and one day. Boy i was dreading for this moment! This number always felt enormous in my mind, and i was never one to dread ageing. I mean, as always i still feel like i’m 14, but i’m not intimidated by the first wrinkles or the fact that this year i’ll become a mom (gulp, who me?). But this year, more than any other, i imagined that this specific number would make me feel older, less adventurous and less and less me.
But, when you’re surrounding by incredible people who love you like mine do – these thoughts never actually reach your heart. I spent an incredible birthday yesterday, with the day off with Theo, dinner, birthday cakes and wine with friends and lots of warm wishes from everyone i know. Hey, today 28 doesn’t feel as bad i thought it would! Instead, i’m full of joy, determined to be the best version of myself and a little closer to who i envision to be.
So cheers to ageing gracefully, without drama and tears. And cheers to all the amazing things this year has to offer!
