at thirty four i….

It seems that the last decade has passed by ever so quickly, and I have rarely had the time to stop and think about myself and what I have become/what I am becoming. Today as I turn thirty four, I thought I would share some things about me:

  • I don’t worry about getting ‘old’ (yet)
  • I am quite sociable and friendly to strangers (something I certainly was not before becoming a mother)
  • I sometimes feel anxious and a little depressed, but think that is just part of life
  • I do not believe in god (which I have not openly admitted until quite recently)
  • I feel very lucky to have a career I enjoy and feel competent in
  • I sometimes worry that I am doing the ‘wrong’ thing by my children
  • I miss having both my sisters living in the same state as me
  • I love sitting back and observing or listening to people on public transport and at public events
  • I have a bad memory (which is why I am a compulsive list writer and diary keeper)
  • I am more fit now than I have been in over a decade
  • I constantly struggle with myself over my own feminism
  • I have never really travelled anywhere (something I am looking forward to in the future)
  • I am (a little) more patient with people than I have ever been
  • I never really liked being alone until I had children but I now appreciate every second I have to myself
  • I would like to participate again in some form of activism – I’ve been absent from such things since Scarlett was a baby
