I am officially 20 years old! And I really really really do not feel 20! 20!? I have literally just stopped playing Mario Kart on my DS to come and write this… I turned 20 on the 3rd Jan, I didn’t do much to celebrate I just spent time with my family and boyfriend and went to my favourite restaurant. I am super grateful for the gifts I received and everyone who wished me a happy birthday.
“How does it feel to be 20?”, it feels pretty rubbish. Your 20th birthday isn’t really anything special and throughout the day I kept thinking to myself “oh my god I am actually 20, wow I really need to sort myself out” when actually now I think about it…I am doing pretty good. I mean, how much should you have achieved by the time you turn 20? This will be different for everyone. There is no point me explaining what I have achieved and why I am proud this because you should never compare your life to other people’s. This is what I used to do… I used to think “wow they have moved out already” for example. People achieve things at different times, at different ages and for different reasons and this is something I need to remind myself and something you should remind yourselves.
“How does it feel to be 20?”, It feels scary, if I am getting older, that also means my family is getting older. It also means that I am halfway through my 2nd year of university, that I am 20 years away from 40, 40 years away from 60!!
“How does it feel to be 20?” taking more of a positive approach, I feel blessed that I am still here and made it through the bad times and the good times and that I know I can make it through even more bad times and good times.
How did it feel for you guys when you turned 20? Let me know.
