Lately I have felt like time is moving really, really fast. Maybe this has something to do with my upcoming 30th birthday?! Nah, I love helplessly witnessing the somewhat painful death of my twenty-something existence. I do!
Wait, whaaaat? Stop the music.
I’m gonna be THIRTY??
I’m sorry, folks, but I’m not exactly joyous about this. So sue me. I’m not suicidal. I don’t want to lie to people about my age like those crazy old MILFs on TV. I’m just not doing a somersault over it.
I have been masking my discontent by attempting to ignore all references to my birthday, the month of May, and the number 30. So far, it hasn’t worked. We’re still inching closer to May 6th, and I’m convinced my wall calendar is mocking me.
I don’t have plans to parade around the city with a crown on my head yelling, “Hey, everyone! I’m thirty!” By the way, I hate when people do that. Everyone has birthdays. You aren’t special.
If I had my way, I’d like to stay 29. Forever 29. But, because that cannot be, I’ve decided that the only way to help my overwhelming anxiety about aging, life, and the ever-present ticking biological clock is to take…
This is my motto from now on. Baby steps.
One day at a time, one task at a time, one birthday at a time, one moment at a time. Life is moving fast enough as it is without my fretting over so many things that have yet to happen.
I have been blessed with some amazing opportunities and experiences thus far. On to the next one…
Of course you can’t discuss Baby Steps without referencing What About Bob? Here you go!
