A lot of us are turning 30 this year. If I have to read one more Facebook post about how old you are and how you don't want to leave your 20s, I may scream and then block everyone.
I don't often pull the 'I almost died from lung failure' or the 'I have
cancer' card but honestly, I almost died from lung failure and I have
cancer so I have no sympathy for your fears of getting older.
I get that you've reached a milestone in your life where you feel as though you may not have accomplished all that you though you may have at this point. Or you're scared that you're no longer in your 20s and have to seem like an adult. I get that in some ways. You're allowed to feel how you feel.
But really, just be happy you're alive and healthy. Or just be happy you're alive.
Embrace life. Embrace the fact that you get to plan vacations or pay off your mortgage. Or any of those things that seem so boring. Because I almost had a panic attack when I set up a disability fund at the bank and somehow ended up locking in money for three years because I'm not sure I have a three year life-expectancy.
So, when your 30th birthday, or any birthday, comes around this year, instead of panicking about getting older, be thankful for all that you have.
Because you really don't want the alternative.
