I’m officially another year older today. Funnily enough I don’t feel any older than I did yesterday!
I have had the best day – presents, a day off work, a nice walk/run, a long lunch with 2 other birthday friends, our town’s Christmas street party and lots of lovely messages, hugs and kisses from friends and family. I’m definitely feeling the birthday love 😊
I may not be 24, 34 or even 44 anymore but in some ways I don’t feel any different than I did then. It’s just that the numbers are getting bigger each year!
Being a woman of a certain age has its good and bad points. I don’t fear getting older but I do have a secret fear of becoming invisible. Women have a habit of becoming invisible and fading away as they get older. I am determined that this won’t happen to me. My youthfulness may fade away but my spirit won’t fade. Somehow I’ll try to keep it.
I’m into talking, laughing, blogging, social media, adventures, bright colours, community volunteering through Rotary – is this all just a ruse on my part to stay visible in today’s world? Am I the only one that feels like this?
Happy birthday to me! Life certainly is better when you’re laughing!!!
