Today is my 41st birthday. Last year was a big one so we are keeping things simple and easy this year. No big party, a few small dinners with different friend groups. I am also coming off a kind of wild and crazy (at least wild and crazy for our 40-something crew!) weekend for one of my best friends’ birthdays. My boyfriend is here and we are taking a half day and getting massages and then having dinner with my parents. A nice relaxed day.
Last week, I read this quote in the James Clear newsletter and it really resonated with me, so I thought I’d share it!
“Whatever age you are today, your future self would love to be it.
Most people do not consider 65 to be a young age… but when you’re 75, you’d love to rewind to 65 and regain those years. Few people would describe 35 as your youth, but in your mid-50s your mid-30s will seem like the “young you.”
Today is a great opportunity, no matter your age. Looking back in a few years, today will seem like the time when you were young and full of potential or the moment when you could have started early or the turning point when you made a choice that benefited your future.
The moment in front of you right now is a good one. Make the most of it.”
Makes you think, right!?
PS – for a laugh, here is the post I wrote on my 31st birthday. Cringing at a lot of it but it’s fun to have a record of these things!
