I remember on my 26th year I wrote about my worries of gaining weight and getting wrinkles and questioned my state of employment.
Year 27 just flew by and I’m glad to say the least of my worries were weight gain/wrinkles/employment (I know #soblessed, but really not trying to brag, just acknowledging my state of being). Actually, I almost wanted to say I didn’t “worry” much. Things sort of just happened where naturally it may have caused some stress like the home buying process, and becoming mama to two munchkins but those stresses and anxiety were thankfully short-lived.
And here I begin year 28. They say, and l concur, time really speeds up as you get older. The days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, and months turn into years, within a second! (no, not really but feels like it!)
So lately I feel time, my time, has become more valuable. I’ve become quite stingy, sort to speak, about who I spend my time with and what I spend it doing. I definitely need to still work on the “what” since I become so easily distracted by social media, and at times for hours! 😁
I’ve been working a lot for the past year, like many who work full time. But I’d like to cut back a day or two here and there. That’d be lovely. Work to make up 5 out of 7 days is definitely not and never was a goal of mine. How did I end up here?
I have a lot of unfinished business. Mostly art projects. Mostly me-time projects. Maybe they’re the reasons I haven’t been feeling like myself this past year.
28. Young, I still feel. I never understood why women are scared to reveal their true age like they’re ashamed to be alive for x amount of years with x amount of experience and having x amount of wisdom. I’d love to make it to 50, 70, or 90 and tell people I’ve come quite a long way and I have a lot of stories to tell, and if they care to listen, I’d sit them down with some milk tea and just tell them my stories.
We’ll all get there. Wherever it is you want to be. Physically, mentally, emotionally. But not without patience and persistence.

Ever wonder how your relationship will change once you have kids?
Try having puppies!
Example 1: One partner wakes up in the middle of the night tending to whining pups and fulfilling midnight play sessions while other catches up on sleep.
Example 2: One picks up poops and cleans pee stains while the other takes some me-time.
Example 3: One keeps the pups entertained while the other scarf down their meal.
And before you know it, you’ve gone weeks without any “partner-time.”
But, the puppies are so darn cute, the relationship can take a tiny hit… Just for the time being…right?

Starting to fantasize about being a stay at home mom every morning I have to leave the pups for work.
