I don’t remember exactly when birthdays stopped being about birthday cake, presents and parties for me. These days it’s more about being around loved ones and quietly appreciating life. (Plus it’s more than likely that I’m just a nana and everyone else my age is still about the parties and cake!)
So as of today there’s two years left of my twenties. I find it funny how that thought would have scared me so much in my early twenties. Somewhere along the way I realised that getting older is a privilege.
A couple of years ago I told myself I would spend the rest of my twenties savouring each day rather than trying to plan out my future. And I think I can say that I have definitely become a dream-chaser instead of a planner. There isn’t a ‘5 year life plan’ in sight these days. Instead I act from the heart, go with gut feelings and refuse to plan it all out like I once did. I don’t know what the next two years will look like. Life is busy but beautiful right now. And right now is what I’m living for.
I hope your day has been as wonderful as mine. x
