Today I was reminded more than ever that age is simply a number. My supervisor on my TV job constantly reminds me how you can reinvent yourself whenever you feel like it. I work with a 16 year old singer and her ambition and work ethic are stronger than many 45 year olds. Also I know a lot of grown men (and women) that behave like babies. And I see babies that are so full of life it is amazing.
I've decided I do not care about my calendar age at all any more. Ever since I turned 31, I get so worked up over my age and how it relates to my lifestyle. I sometimes torture myself because I'm the age I am and am not a homeowner. It annoys me sometimes that I don't have a 401K or other things people my age "should" have. When I "really" party, I party like my college days. Sometimes I get crushes on guys way too young but so what? And let's not talk about work. I work extremely hard ... when I'm working! This last year was full of gaps with no employment at all and a couple of calls home for help with bills ... at my age jeez! I digress.
Here's the thing. Life is happening every second. I've got the choice of moping because I'm old as I get older or I can simply LIVE and ENJOY. I'm opting for the latter and encourage everyone else to as well ... regardless of their age! (And on that note, shout out to my dear friends Mistie and Kendra who celebrate bdays this week! Also to my small nieces through friendship Kennedy and Amelia! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOLLS!!!!)
