I turned 26 a few weeks ago. My wonderful husbeast and boy gifted to me this amazing Cat Rabbit fox from the Rainy days exhibition at Cube. I can honestly say that I don't feel too old, or too young, I feel just right (like Goldilocks!). When I was a teenager, it was all about what I could do once I was 16 or 18 or an adult... when I met Blair it was all about when he might ask me to marry him, buying a house, having children, always waiting for then next big thing.
Now I regularly make a conscience decision to enjoy what I have for now and not be so focused on the future that I miss the present, easier said then done of course, but I think I'm getting better at it (I hope I am). I still have day dreams about things I'd like for the future and they are very important to me, but enjoying today for what it is - totally awesome.
