thirty four.

That's how old I am today. I don't think it has actually hit me yet. I have no problem getting older, in fact I enjoy it, I enjoy feeling more comfortable in my skin, I enjoy not worrying about the unimportant stuff, I enjoy not worrying about what other people think.

What I do worry about is how quickly time goes. I cannot believe that thirty four years have gone by so quickly, and I worry that the next will go by just as quickly. As I get older I am desperately trying to live in the now, but that seems to be so difficult...but I am trying.

I just wish everything would slow down....

I have had an awesome birthday and an even better thirty four years....thanks for being a part of it!

Happy Birthday.

My husband is turning 39 later this year but he seems to be fixated on next year. Whenever somebody asks him how old he is he says he is turning 40 next year. I think it must be bugging him. He should take your advise and live in the now. He still has a year and a half before 40.

Don't worry, it's not just you. Apparently time IS REALLY going faster. Something to do with the universe expanding. Not sure how they work that one out, but at least it's not just me!

Happy B'day!

Happy Belated Birthday, Hayley!

I'm 38, and I'm noticing that life gets BETTER as we get older. My hope is that your experience will be the same.

God bless you!
