Age???

It’s a Monday around one o’ clock in the afternoon and I am just realizing that I turn 41 in 18 days. I am not sure how I feel about that. I mean there is nothing that I can do about it but it does raise a lot of questions.

A few examples of these questions are:

  1. Do I want to have kids? I mean if this is a yes, I would have to start like a.s.a.p ­čśŤ
  2. Can we still go out clubbing and dancing or is this the age that it will get a bit pathetic?
  3. Is it weird that we still don’t know what we want to do with our lives?

These are just a few that keeps this little mind busy and of course usually at night. As you know this blog is just not mine alone. It belongs to the three of us but I do most of the writing cause I love to write. We do discuss these topics quite frequently and one of us has dealt with the first question and is about to have a baby in December. YAY!! Can’t wait to meet the little prince. I am still not sure what I want. If it happens it happens and if not this will be ok too.

Question number two is one I have been struggling with because I love to get dressed with my friends and go out dancing and having a good time. The one problem is that the people at these clubs are very very young. I mean up till now I didn’t care but 41 is making me question if I should still do this. I always see people making these memes about how women of over 30 shouldn’t be out in the club. They should have grown up jobs, a family and be all serious by now. It’s not that we go clubbing every week like when we were in our twenties because let’s be real we don’t have that kind of energy anymore. We need like 3 days to get back to normal but we still like to go out from time to time.

We have good jobs and our own homes but we still like to have fun. If you look at Instagram and how many women get bashed about posting sexy pics if they have a family or if they are out with friends and they have a family at home. ┬áNeedless to say that this is so ridiculous. These women had kids, that doesn’t mean they are not sexy women anymore just cause they have a family now. It’s very simple┬áif you don’t like what someone posts just don’t follow them. This is just our opinion of course.

I, on the other hand, am so happy to see women on social media who are older than 35 and who are still dressing sexy and having fun in their life. They are not conforming to the stereotypical things that people expect from women over 35.

The third question which actually made me get up and be productive this Monday was: WHAT THE HELL do I want to do with my life???

I have been a teacher for about 15 years now but I also want to explore other job opportunities. I would love to do more with social media. I would love to do more with this blogging. I would love to travel more and see the world and meet new people. I would love to finally publish the book that has been living on my laptop for two years now. But here comes the age thing again. I wonder if I can turn my life around like that at this age. Am I setting myself up for failure???

The strange thing is that most of our friends don’t know what they want to do in life. We all work because the mortgages need to be paid and there needs to be food on the table. I hope that one day I can go make a living by doing things that I absolutely love and that I can make my hobbies and interests into a job.

Well enough of this rambling for today and who knows that within a year I can write about how everything has changed and that I am happy with my job and enjoying life to the fullest.

Talk to you soon.
