She is now 10 times older than her son.
She is still collecting her thoughts on how she feels on this day.
She is spending her special day with her parents after 9 long years.
She got 2 surprise parties this year and NO gifts from Lemon. She will NEVER forget this in her life.
She is at home watching the snow fall and sipping hot coffee while typing this post.
She is not ready to leave the childhood behind but she knows she has to after this day. Many people cross the bridge from childhood to adulthood at 21. For her it has been different.
She has never considered herself a part of the category called ‘grown-ups’. She has so far enjoyed being the child. Being the youngest in the household. Being pampered for everything at home. Today, she feels she cannot escape the grown-up category anymore. The 3-O feels like a very big number. She doesn’t know why. But it bothers her.
She was worried when Lemon turned 30 a couple of years back. He convinced her saying its just a number and that he will always remain young at heart.
She is not sure what changes this new year and number will bring into her life. For now, she just wants to stop worrying and hope for the best.
She wants to, going forward, dedicate little time each day to do something that she really loves.
She had a goal that she wanted to achieve on this day and it has come true. She is happy for that.
She has learned not to make any decisions when she is upset.
She has come to realize that almost half of her life is over.
She is different now and feels wiser, happier, confident and determined.
She is Lavender and yesterday was her birthday!
