29

"Today is my birthday, I get one every year" -No Doubt

Every birthday morning, since I first heard that song years ago, those lyrics pop in to my head. Every year. It always fascinates me how the same things happen yearly but you could be a totally different person the next time it comes around.

This year, today  as a matter of fact, I turn 29.
The last year in my twenties, huh, how did we get here?
Now I know it may be premature to say, considering I am not even out of my twenties yet-BUT, I don't mind aging. I take it as an honor. So yeah, people may freak out about turning 30-40-50 etc. but you know what? It is a heck of a lot better than the alternative!

I'm starting a new year of life and it is pretty exciting! 29 felt like 29 when I woke up this morning. You know how sometimes when you turn a new age it doesn't feel like it fits? Well 29 seems to fit so far.
29 feels a lot more...womanly. I don't know if it is due to the fact that I have been married for a year or that I have been doing a lot of (for lack of a better word) soul searching but I feel solid and am looking forward to what is on the horizon. Due to all the work I have been doing on myself (oh that sounds so hippy dippy-San Francisco) I feel like I am now behind the wheel of a fancy sports car-that I am learning how to drive, whereas in the past I was driving it like I stole it. Meaning that I am not so quick to act, less out of control, and more willing to take a second and think of things before I react...and it feels good! If aging means learning more about yourself and feeling more solid then bring it on baby!

What are some things you have learned about yourself over the years?

Happy belated birthday, dear!
Sometimes it feels good growing up, huh? I don't mind aging right now....later, when I'm 80, I will probably mind. :)
