Age is just a number…..right?

March 26

To me 47 sounds old!  I remember when my mom turned 40 and  I remember I thought that was old. Today I turned 47, but somehow it feels different.  I still feel young.  I feel like I still look young, until I see pictures.  My health is good and I am thankful for that.  But the number itself bothers me.  Maybe because I know it is going to just keep going up.  Unlike the number on the scale, there is no possible way my age is going down.

There are some days that I can’t believe I am living on my own and supporting two children.  There are some days when I still call my parents asking for advice or for help fixing something in my house.  There are some days when I do not feel like I am the “adult” at home or in my classroom and I look for someone older, wiser, more “adult” than me to make the hard decisions.  But then I realize how far I have come!

I am living on my own, supporting my two children.  There are days that I do not talk to my parents, that I do not ask their advice, and times that I fix things on my own, thanks to Google!  There are days when I am the only adult there, the only adult there to make the hard decisions.

Which helps me realize age is just a number!

Just like the scale and my fight with those numbers, my age is the same thing.  I feel happy.  I feel confident.  I feel at peace with where I am, where I have been, and where I am going.  I have fun.  I love my life, and with that I have to embrace and love being 47. I have to accept the phrase “Age is just a number!”

Cheers to a new year!
