So its my birthday! Yay or more like mmm! Birthdays, a day when as a child it felt like christmas day! Waking up with excitment nice and early ready for your gifts. Presents wrapped in pretty paper envelopes filled with cards and people chanting happy birthday, well in my household it would be sung in italian, polish and english! Would take ages! I remember wanting a badge in a card so I could wear it to school and show people it was my birthday! Hometime couldnt come quick enough as I skipped off home ready to see my family and friends! A beautiful cake made by my mama with a different themed cake such as My Little Pony that she made! Was amazing!
As I got older birthdays became a time to go out with friends and get a little tipsey whilst dancing the night away! Then I hit 25 and I had a midlife crisis! I felt a surge of panic as I realised a quarter of my life had gone! Like a flash of lightening! I didnt want to celebrate, I started to question myself! What have I achieved? Have I done what I wanted to do? Have I been a good person? Oh boy all the questions! Each birthday since hasnt been the same, I never plan anything and the day comes and goes. Today I am 28, with a child and hoping to buy a house soon! I am getting older so quickly, grey hairs are coming through! How time flies and I honestly havent done what I had hoped- travelling. I thought I would be married by now and still going out with friends. But instead I am a mummy, a dream I never thought Id live, and engaged. I havent travelled or been particularly wild but I realise I have been blessed. I am so lucky to have the family I have, to have the most beautiful boy in the world and a man who makes it all possible. So this post is just to say live everyday the best you can, dont wish your life away because it honestly flies by, appreciate your blessings and be the best you can be.
