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?”
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!
