I’m twenty-nine and I feel... good?
When I was younger I really dreaded getting older because of the silly shallow things; I wondered if it’ll become harder and harder for me to lose weight, if I’ll get more dark spots on my face, if my boobs will sag. I already know the answer to all of them is “yes”, but what I didn’t anticipate will come with age as well (why do I sound like I’m actually turning 80 lmao) is confidence and contentment.
I guess it took me almost 30 years to realize there’s much more to life than just worrying about gaining weight, about what other people think of me and about peer pressure. I certainly wouldn’t mind getting here sooner tho 🤷🏻♀️
21-year-old me would not have imagined that it would be possible for me to feel comfortable in my own skin, okay with not being “perfect” and actually happy to be doing what I do. Of course there will always be bad days but generally, I’m pretty happy with where I am now ☺️
Thank you for the wishes, the celebrations, the food, the drinks and the friendships! I truly am so thankful 🥰
p/s: Idk why but I decided last minute to buy myself a pretty cake this year! I got the Korean-style daisy cake from @llebeurre, and then I also got blue nails to match it because why the heck not 💙
p/p/s: Every year I get drunk at least once on my birthday so swipe till the end for my favourite drunk video of me this year, where I apparently verbally abused @jsnhow for trying to help me finish the drinks lol
