Have you ever stopped and thought how did I get this old?! I’m 37 next month and I always have a little mental evaluation of where I am and where I want to be just before a birthday. It made me think, what have I learnt along the way…
# You need to love yourself before anyone else will.
# Look after yourself. You will start to notice fine line/grey hairs. I found it was time to start using a night cream and serum moisturiser.
# Your hair will generally get thinner. I used to have really long thick hair. Although, I haven’t noticed hair thinning to the extent of some of my friends, it is definitely not as ‘mane like’ as it used to be. I have started looking for shampoos which add a bit of volume as well as moisturising qualities.
# I will never change. No matter how many time I say I am going to be more organised, I won’t forget people’s birthdays, etc. It is still hit and miss! Yes, I have a diary, yes I write everything on random bits of paper, oh and don’t get me started on post-it notes everywhere!! Yet, I still forget – sorry!
# It’s ok to be a big kid. Why can’t you go on the swings/roundabout? Why can’t you paddle in the sea?
# There will be those special peeps who always stay in your life. Yeah, I’m talking about my BFFs 🙂 It is true what they say, you don’t need to see or speak to a real friend for months. You know it’s real.
# I will always keep learning and evolving as a person. That’s the exciting thing about human intelligence and emotional development. Embrace it 🙂
