I can write you a story, teach you French, sing you a song.

Another Year Older!

They say that you are only as old as you feel.

Today, I may be another year older, but goodness knows I don’t feel (and look!) like it!

For the record, today I’m turning 30! It’s really hard to believe, to be honest, that I’m turning 30. I know that I feel different. Goodness knows I’m a far happier person than I was the last time I turned an age divisible by 10! I know I am. I can feel it and see it in my face.

But I don’t feel 30!

The only way I feel 30 is that I’m far more comfortable in my skin than I have ever been. I’ve never been happier with myself! I’ve found what makes me happy (speaking French, making music, writing), I no longer cringe when looking in the mirror at myself, I’m a LOT more patient, and most of all, I enjoy the gifts that God has given me, such as my ability to pick up a foreign language without much difficulty, my musical talents, and my writing. Everyone has their own talents and what they are good at. I have found mine and I’m happier than ever with them. They are a part of who I am and I should not hide them from the world.

As for looking 30….. yeah, no I don’t look 30! 😛 I’ve never looked my age. When I was a teenager, I always looked younger. I hated it! Because when you’re young, you want to look older. Then when you’re older, you want to look young. It’s weird how that works. You always think the grass is greener, I guess. Everyone tells me that looking young is a good thing when you’re older. I’ll take their word for it! 😀

In any case, I’m looking forward to what 30 will bring. It will be even better than 29! 😀
