Happy birthday to me.

So today I turn 32, (the OCD in me much prefers being an even number)!
In my thirties I feel that I have grown more as an individual, in terms of not worrying too much about what other people’s opinions of me may be, if they had any that is.
In March of this year, I decided I wanted to start blogging. Documenting my life, (an online scrapbook if you like for the children to look back on when they are older) becoming more creative and just generally being more confident within myself. Starting a blog has definitely allowed me to become this person, so I am definitely seeing 'getting older' as more of a positive thing and I’m excited to share that chapter with you all.

Nowadays, birthdays just feel like any other day, and I’m really not that fussed about celebrating them. (Of course if I get an invite out to go celebrate, then it would be rude to turn it down).  
When I was younger, I remember hearing my Mum and Dad mention for birthdays and especially Christmas ‘don’t bother too much about getting us anything’, and thinking to myself ‘what on earth?’, but it’s so true. The older you get, the less it becomes about the receiving part, though i'm not one to turn down a gift!

However, at the same time it makes you feel very grateful. Especially on them days, weeks or months where you may not be feeling quite yourself. You realise you have a great circle of friends and family around you, who buy you gifts, and send their best wishes with a card or through social media and that’s what makes you feel special and wanted.
Of course with age I’ve come to realise having a good skincare routine in place is important, as the ole wrinkles are becoming more prominent now, and it’s so true what they say about weight loss becoming harder the older you get! This is something I am definitely struggling with at the moment.

On the plus side, I am thankful at the age of 32 for having had two beautiful children, a partner who thinks the world of me and a close knit circle of friends and family. I enjoy my job and the people I work with, and who’d of thought.. a return to education. Studying for a degree in Business Studies.
So yeah, I may be getting older, but who cares when I have so much to be thankful for.

I have exceeded my expectations, and I am exactly where I need to be in life.
