Yay I’m 26! The only fear is that I am closer to 30 than 20 now…
The one thing I really like about Birthdays is that I can take a look back and think about the year that has just past. My twenties so far have been some of the best and worst years of my life but I would never change a single thing as it’s gotten me to today which is one of the happiest times of my life.
If I look back to last year when I turned 25 I would never of dreamed that I would soon be welcoming our first baby at 26 years old. We had spoken about starting a family but we were also quite realistic that it may take some time to actually conceive and with only four weeks to go my 26th Birthday will be a sober one. (Totally worth it!!)
Alongside falling pregnant there are some other things that have changed this year.
I’ve stopped comparing myself soo much to others. This includes online and my day to day life. I finally accepted that everyones living their own stories and no two are meant to be the same. Instead i’ve become more invested in what I DO have and i’m thankful for my health, job, our home, friends and my family.
Another BIG thing this year and for the next year to come I want to invest more in experiences rather than things. This has already started as I asked the Husband for a night away for my Birthday as I wanted to spend some alone time just the two of us before Baby Gamble arrives. So we are heading to Bournemouth and I am beyond excited just to walk along the beach, eat greek food and explore the aquarium.
I’m hoping as a family of three we can really embrace making memories in the next year that’s ahead and I’m really excited to be getting older for once because all of sudden my life as a purpose more than ever and I can’t wait to spend my next Birthday with my little girl and Husband by my side!
