So, tomorrow is my birthday and I turn 30
For as long as I can remember I have DREADED turning that age, it just seemed so old!
And now it has come around it actually doesn't seem that bad (I'm saying this now, there may be screaming fits tomorrow! haha)
I know it sounds like a cliche, but age is just a number
I still feel young, hopefully look young ( I do get asked for i.d quite a bit) and act young
My nana passed when she was 97 and she was one of my favourite people to be around
She had such a young soul, she'd even let me dye some of her hair pink
I hope if I get to that age I'm just as fun as her
When I think about how stressed in the past I have been about turning this age, it seems so silly
It doesn't mean ANYTHING!
Society makes us feel we should be at certain stages at certain ages
So, right now I should probably be married, have a mortgage, maybe a kid and have my career planned out
And I don't
And you know what? I'm happy about that!
I've never been one to conform, why should I now?
I have so many dreams, plans, ambitions and wishes and I feel I've gotten to the stage now that I feel free!
Sure I have bills, worries and crap that I have to deal with
But I feel now I am free to do what I want to do, be who I am and not care what people think of me
A few weeks ago I was umming and ahhing in a supermarket over buying a cute hair bow from the kids section
'Am I too old for this?....Will I look silly'
WHO THE HELL CARES?
It's cute and I like it!
I'm sure a lot of us have had these feelings, but we shouldn't
Age really doesn't matter!
And one day I'm gonna be a cool looking granny rocking some pink pigtails and a Hello Kitty bag!
Be yourself and love who you are
