Today I turn 45.
I must admit, I am having some trouble with that number. It doesn’t have anything to do with “feeling old” because truth be told, I feel younger than I did fifteen years ago. It’s just…the number. I don’t like thinking about it, and I don’t like saying it.
When I was a kid I did the math to figure out that in the year 2000, I would be thirty-two. I remember thinking, “Wow, that’s really old! I can’t even IMAGINE being that old!”
And here I am, thirteen years older than that.
I’m thrilled that I have the type of outgoing personality and active lifestyle that makes me feel decades younger than I really am. I am definitely young at heart, and I am blessed to have the ability to squeeze as much fun as I possibly can out of every single life experience.
That’s why I’m going to do my best to leave those icky feelings about my current age number behind, now that I have typed them out for everyone to see, and I’m going to make a quick switch to Plan B.
Instead of allowing myself to be all squirmy and icky about one number today, I’m going to think about different numbers as I count my blessings and my friends. Those numbers are much more fun anyway!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some birthday fun to have!
Hey, please do me a favor and go check out my post on the AWESOME Custom Facial I received at The Peninsula Spa, using ESPA age-enhancing luxury skin care products. Age-enhancing! See what I did there? Perfect timing!
