Being a grown up is overrated.

So my birthday is coming up in…11 days. Woo hoo? I think this is the first time I’ve ever been really not excited for my birthday. I guess that makes me officially a grown up now?

I mean, I’m excited to spend time with family and friends, and I always make it a point to treat myself to something for my birthday and spend a little time relaxing (it’s basically the only time I do that all year), so that’s exciting.

But it’s also the first birthday I’ve spent alone in 5 years, the first birthday since my parents moved out of state, and the first birthday where I really feel like my life is slipping away.

This is SO not where I thought my life would be at 25…and that’s depressing. 😦

  1. That’s so sad. I wish I was there to wish you a happy 25th Addie Marie. I will be with you in thought πŸ™‚ ❀

    I can understand how you feel. I did absolutely nothing for my last two birthdays (39 and 40), because I’ve just been too sick.


  3. You never have to “grow up”. πŸ™‚
    I hope your birthday is wonderful and relaxing. If you can, embrace the hope and promise of the year ahead.
    I picked one almost “normal” thing to do near my 40th.
    Just a thought… I just can’t help myself ;).
    I went for a very short paddle where the current would do the work and then rested for two days. If you can find something and then rest, it may be a little empowering.


    • If you say so, I feel awfully OLD already :/. Thanks, just not feeling much promise ahead at the moment, just sad that this is not where I wanted to be in life at 25. 😦 Good for you! It’s not a physical problem, more an emotional one. Just have no plans, and the people I generally spend my birthday with are gone. I’d like to do something, just don’t know what :/.
