Time Flies.

A phrase I’ve found myself repeating numerous times these past few days. And with good reason.

This week, 4 of my very best friends turned the grand old age of 21. Not ‘old’ by any feat, but a milestone in itself. With this I have found myself throwing this phrase at a number of parents, “Doesn’t time fly?”

Another day. Another year older.

There comes a time in your life where you look back on the things you have done and look forward to the things that have yet to come. This is one of those times.

Tomorrow I turn 20. A relatively small number in such a large world we live in. But over the past 240 months of my life I have experienced things many people never in their entire lifetime. And this is only the beginning.

Signs have been cropping up frequently in the past week, sending me messages in the books I have read, the films I have watched and the experiences I have had. Telling me that now is the time time to change. It has really helped me to re-evaluate the place I am in and where I want to be.

So my message for you is this:

Live life each and every day. Make mistakes as often as you can. Don’t hide from the world, be bold and show it who you are. Take every minute head on and make it count. Smile, cry, laugh. Live your life, because you only get the one.

Age is but a number.

So we come to that time of year again where 365 days have past and something inevitable happens. We age. Yes, it has come round once again. My birthday. Saturday will bring a big change to who I am.

This year my life will be changed by one single number. That mischievous number 1 that has been at the front spot of my age for the past 10 years of my life will say goodbye and be replaced with a shiny, new number 2. And I know what you’re going to say.

“Oh my gosh, you’re turning 20?! How are you not completely terrified by becoming so old?!”

And I can tell you now why. Pure and simple. I’m just not.

If we let every single thing that happened to us affect us, especially ageing which we cannot control, then we wouldn’t amount to anything. Instead we can grasp it head on and shout to the world,

“Yeah, that’s right! I’m 20! Let me show you just what I’m going to do about it!”

So smile, keep your head held high and make something of yourself 🙂

Here’s to the next 365 days!
