How I feel about turning 26?

IMG_20160318_185758

My birthday will be on the 1st of April and yes I will be turning 26! I honestly can’t believe where the hell the time has gone – I feel depressed that I am on the other side of the fence of my 20’s and reaching the big 30! So,  how do I feel about turning 26?

Getting older is never easy – with age comes more responsibilities and pressures like getting ask multiple times by family and friends when am I getting married? When am I having kids?? And that my eggs are going to vanish and I am past my prime of having kids! Seriously??? I have enough time to worry about all of that it’s not a race! I am happy where I am in life and feel like I am right on schedule with the plan I have for myself. You definitely can’t bring any children into this world when you can’t even take care of yourself – I feel 21 at heart and have so much I want to accomplish in life, starting a family is the last thing on my list right now and honestly my eggs can wait!

With that being said I am not happy I am getting older – but I am gaining so much with age wisdom and life experience and having the time with loved ones and seeing my little nephew growing up – age really does make me want the simpler things in life and makes you realise how important it is to have people in your life who supports and loves you. Not the fake friends who stabs you in the back the first chance they get. Some of you might think “ OMG only 26, still a baby what do I know, right?” Well I have been through so much more than a typical 26 year old has so life experience is definitely something I have under my belt.

Anyway enough ramblings I am turning 26 so what??

    Happy upcoming birthday to you, Candice and no worries, I think many women have the same thought as you when they are turning 26. I think you’re mature and wise for having such thoughts instead of when and where the next party going to be. xx

      Hehe yeah I have encountered a lot of tricks and jokes made on me on this day

    Happy birthday in advance!

    I can relate to literally everything you’ve said! I’ve passed my mid-20s and everyone and their dog is asking questions like whether there’s a boyfriend/husband/kids on the horizon. I feel like your 20s are for exploring the world and being acquainted with yourself. Personally, bringing an extra person into the mix would hold me back from doing that and besides, I’m happy with where I am now. I can go when I want to go, stay when I want to stay. I think, as long as you’re learning and experiencing everything that life has to offer, whether you’re achieving what people believe you should be achieving at whatever age point doesn’t really matter!

    /Rant over LOLOLO.

    26 is a big number! Though as an 18-year-old, any age is a big number haha! I can’t wait to see what you got for 26. I’m a big fan of birthdays, it reminds me what the future has, and what the past once was <3

    In my mid 20s I felt like this, but now in my early 30s I have got to say I am simply grateful for every year I get. I still have a lot to figure out and achieve, but I don’t worry about getting ‘old’ – it is only a number! I hope you have a great birthday tomorrow 🙂 Celebrate!

    Happy birthday Candice! 26 is an awesome age. I was never worried about getting “old”. See age as a privilege. The older I got, the better I felt, to be honest. Age comes with some great things, such as financial independence, more confidence, more stable relationships and other things. Every phase of our life has a good side. Focus on the positive! 🙂
