Tomorrow I’m turning 50!
These years really flew by. I quite cannot believe it. I don’t feel 50 (well, just sometimes, when I have pains here and there! ) but I am.
I am an old mum compared to others mothers. My only daughter is 14 and sometimes I compare myself to other younger mums, and I see them with so much more energy than me, so many more years together ahead than me. I know it’s stupid to think like this. Let’s make the best of what we have.Let’s live the present and enjoy the company of the people we love most.
Growing up I’ve learned at least to be more selective about the people that surround me. If somebody drains my energy, well probably that’s a sign that I don’t need him/her in my life. I just want to stay around people that understand me, that make me happy. The rest can go.
Do you also think this way?
At this moment my husband and my daughter are in the kitchen preparing dinner for me. Mexican fajitas. We celebrate one day earlier because, being Sunday, there is more time and we are more relaxed than during a school/work day. I hear them talking, laughing… And that makes me happy. Being around them is the best gift ever.
Are there other 50-years old mums in this comm?
