It's my birthday!
I'm another year older. I'm 34. Only one more year until I am 35 and then it is all DOWNHILL. Right? I mean, when I turn 35, I'm only 5 years away from 40 and 40 is like, I can't even comprehend. So old. Okay, okay, I'm just kidding! KIDDING! I can't wait to embrace my 40's! Bring it ON! Actually, I think I'm going to really enjoy the rest of my 30's. 3o's are almost as awesome as the 20's. Even more awesome, in some ways.
Most days, I still feel like I'm in my 20's. Sure, I'm a married mom of two incredible little boys but I don't feel older. Just way more tired than I was in my 20's. I guess five years of getting no more than four hours of sleep a night will do that to a person, right?
I miss high school, and University, where my biggest problem was... um... drawing a blank here... because there really were no worries back then. What, studying for an exam? Writing an essay? Discovering the Internet? Drinking? Anyway.
In all honestly, life right now is great. Being a mom is the most amazing thing ever. It truly is. Watching my boys growing, our conversations, the hugs, the feeling of immense proudness when my son writes his name, reading to my boys, listening to their laughter, playing with them, and hearing "I love you, mama!" are the reasons I'm thankful to be another year older.
Last year I wrote about the reasons I was happy to be turning one year older, and the same reasons are true this year. I'm happy to be alive, because the alternative sucks, and I love being a mother to my two children.
My birthday wish is pretty simple. Health and happiness for all my loved ones. That's it!
This year, I want to challenge myself more. Push myself in areas I know I can do better, make positive changes, cook more often, continue exercising and become a more patient person.
