I am now 33 years old. To put that in some sort of context, I started blogging when I was 19 years old and purchased OneStarryNight.com right after I turned 20 (it’ll be 13 in a few weeks!).
I struggle so much with my birthday. It’s just a rough time for me emotionally. Not so much about getting older but just getting acknowledged I suppose? That I exist? I have issues.
This year is a bit harder than past years because we’re not able to celebrate at all. All of our extra money went towards the vet for the cats.
So no gifts, no restaurant (which is hard in general anyway since I’m gluten intolerant), no dessert (again… gluten), my husband works, nothing “special” to make this day stand out from all the rest.
I am trying so hard to not spend the day wallowing and crying, because that’s pretty much what I do on my birthday.
So today my goal is just to find a way to see the positive.
What a positive post I know!
