This past weekend was my 35th birthday.



So there are days that I'm ok with everything in my life, then there are days that I wish some small stuff would change, then there are days like last week when I felt like WTF is wrong with me and how the hell am I 35 already!!!!!!!

When I turned 25 I had a typical quarter life crisis which led me to completely turn my life around by 26.  It was amazing and I'm grateful.  I've made tons of changes and truly am a better person (cliche!). I gave up booze, then butts, gained a bunch of weight, started running, s-l-o-w-l-y lost some weight then really began to run.  By 30 I was feeling good, looking good but I was single and lonely.  I stayed single for what felt like forever until I met the boy.  We just celebrated 2 years (although you could say not in a row as there has been some breakups along the way). And now I'm feeling like OK, now what?


I think this is what a midlife crisis feels like, except I think a midlife crisis happens when you hit 50 not 35.

In true midlife crisis fashion, I'm playing around with going back to school, something I previously had no desire to do.  I'm thinking about a certificate program at FIT.  Nothing too strenuous, more along the lines of fun and something to get me out of my bubble.  I'm also thinking about a tri (kidding, still no desire!!).

I'm not sure what the future holds, but I do know that it's out of my control (so deep) and I'm just here to enjoy the ride, so that's what I'm going to try and do!

Cheers to 35!

Happpy Birthday! I was just talking to a friend yesterday who said she feels like she is having a quarter life crisis and needs to change things up. I think the desire to change things up throughout life is GOOD! :)
