On Turning Twenty... Something

Every one likes their day of birth. No matter how much some people don't like to admit it, or don't like to hear that they're ANOTHER year older, there is always some part of you that likes that ONE DAY A YEAR that's yours. Ever since about my eighteenth birthday I've tried to block out in my mind that I'm getting older by the minute. There's just that point in your life when getting older is no longer as fun as it used to be. But no matter how hard you try or how much you avoid the subject, you can just keep telling yourself that you're the same age you were a few years ago, it just doesn't change the facts. So, recently I've been trying to grasp the unlikable facts and take back actually celebrating being another year older. I mean hey, you only have one life to live and if you live it loving who you are and loving yourself, even though you might not love the age you are, you will probably live a much more fulfilled life. Turning another year means you have another year of experiences and things you've never been able to see or do before in your your life. Just think about all the wonderful fun things you would have missed out on if you could actually "skip" another year of getting older. When you think about it that way, getting older isn't so bad! So, instead of pushing aside the things we don't like, let's celebrate that we were able to live one year more and hope for a whole other year full of amazing adventures ahead! Let's actually LIKE getting older!
