I never really cared about birthdays and rarely celebrated them since adulthood. This year was different though.
There was something about the number that weighed heavily on me and I really wanted a few days off to take my mind off it and welcome myself into another orbit around the Sun. I’m still not sure why 35 hit me harder than 30 or any age before; all I know is that it did.
Over the weekend Ag and I spent as much time as possible soaking in the sun at a beach nearby and eating some amazing local food while at it. I will write in more detail about it later this week, but I wanted to get this post out now as I felt like I was giving this number too much weight that it deserves.
The key takeaway from the break (apart from all the gifts that Ag showered on me) is to live in the moment and be grateful for all the joys that life throws at me. It comes at the most unexpected circumstances and in ways that I did not know was possible.
So here’s to more celebrations and fewer worries in life!
