Words for Wednesday

I stumbled on this quote somewhere and the words just spoke to me. I'm in my late twenties (relatively young I think) but still, lately I've not exactly greeted my birthdays with excitement. I'm not sure what it is that makes me feel that way, maybe the expectation to have certain boxes checked off by this age, but whatever it is, it's time to get over it. How many people didn't get the chance to reach this birthday? I think about the birthdays denied to my first love, who I lost earlier this year, and think how absolutely absurd it is to worry about getting older when he won't get a chance. I've decided, no matter what, I'm going to welcome each and every Birthday I'm lucky enough to get.

  1. I enjoyed this quote! It spoke to me as well. It's absolutely true since some of us (me)take for granted what we have been granted...another year of life with the people, surroundings, and food we love most! I had cancer at 26 years old, beat it and you'd think I would love each birthday, right!? Well, sometimes that old age crap gets in the way. (chuckle-chuckle) love your blog!

  2. I prefer growing older over non old. My mom lived to 86 and was so annoyed she did not make it to 93, as her auntie did. To soon old, to late smart.

  3. I love this quote Beege. I pinned it a few weeks ago and couldn't help but think about ARZ.
