So I recently had the BIG birthday and I am not sure why everyone else who had it before me was freaking out! It is definately not bad and I don’t feel like I am old. I can still relate on some level to the younger generation as well as the older generation, so my question to everyone who has experienced 30, 40 or even 50 years old, please tell me how you felt when you hit that milestone mark.
For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to get to another age such as I always wanted to get to sixteen, then twenty one, then twenty-five etc. and once I got there, I was never sad that I lived to that age. The fact is that I am living so i still have the chance to try and accomplish my goals that I have set for myself. One of my goals that I accomplished was to finally get married! Well, I accomplished that this past December and I secretly am wondering why I waited so long. I know that nothing ever happens before the time its supposed to and getting married this late in life is one such event. My husband is someone who is “the marrying kind” and I am benefitting from all the perks that comes with that even though we were together for 9+ years before we tied the knot, so I feel like I really know him well. He has been with me literally through thick and thin and best of all, my mother loved him and gave her blessing before she passed away. We laugh a lot and he has helped to keep my head out of the clouds and my feet firmly on the ground.
I was never the girl that wanted the fairy-tale marriage but I thought I wanted a football team worth of kids. That image crashed and burned the moment I became sick and realised that kids just might not be in my future. My operation saved me and I still have the opportunity to have children but I am clearly in no rush to do so. At this point in my life, I can say with a clear conscience that I am truly happy with all the twists and turns throughout my entire life though I still do have some things that I want to accomplish.
So,where is the BIG age milestone drama, definately not here and I plan to stop it in its tracks whenever it decides to rear its ugly, unwanted head. Here’s to a lifetime of a happiness in my marriage.
