Just Another Birthday

Posted in changes, life, personal, point of view with tags , , , , , , , on May 6, 2009 by MidnightSun


I am turning 22 next wednesday and didn’t know it until my sister reminded me. I’m like, “Oh, that is right.” Am I that content with me just having another birthday that was about to pass me by? Or am I at the age where I don’t have to have a party anymore?

I discovered a grey hair a couple months back and they say that is a sign of wisdom, if that is the case, I need all the wisdom I can get. I am getting older and glad to be getting older but I found myself not making a big deal about it. Is there a certain age you get to where you don’t care how old you get, and that you are glad to be getting older?


Independence Knows No Age Limit

You never know how of something you really have until you go through it or deal with it. My grandmother moved out and she had boxes and boxes of stuff and still left stuff here. She decided to leave because she felt it was time for a change after my grandfather passing away about 5 years ago. She wanted to be by herself and she found her a new place and moved in this past weekend. She is happy to have her independence and I am happy for her.

Being on your own can come at anytime and it can be liberating. You feel like you are only responsible for you and no one else. It’s a new found freedom that you possess and you can do whatever you want, whenever you want, and wherever you want. No one telling you what to do or when to do it. It’s nice to be able to do things when you get ready, not on anyone else’s time frame.
