Hello Birthday Girl!
Today is my BIRTHDAY!
While I secretely wish there were a couple of candles less to blow out on the cake, I admit that I’m quite happy of these 34 years. Well, said that few months ago I totally had a black out and I spent several months thinking my age was already 35 (!! – now you trust me when I say that I’m in desperate need of holiday?!), realizing that I’m “still” 34 was the best gift ever. It’s like someone gifted me an extra year!
I don’t have any particular plans of celebration. My husband is at work for all the day and I’m new in Dubai so I guess all celebrations are postponed in a week when I’ll be finally in Italy for the holiday. But I already had a sort of party last weekend. My husband and I did a staycation at Vida Downtown hotel. It was fun and relaxing. Exactly what we both needed.
If you only thought how many things can change in a year. Last July I was in Doha (still in need of holiday I guess, lol). 12 months later I’m in a new city, new house, new life – but same husband! I’m a curious person, so I can’t deny that I’d love to know what this next 12 months will bring into my life.
At the same time, ignoring the future is also exciting. I feel like I have a white book in front of me and I’m totally free to decide what story to tell, what adventures to live.
For now, to my 34-years-old self I say not to worry of the time that passes. To this new 34-years-old lady I say to not worry about to get old. Yes, face wrinkles will become deeper. Cellulite will never leave your legs anymore. Don’t get angry to those white hair (but book an appointment to the hair salon). Every day we are older than the one before. But smile, have fun, never stop to try new things, never stop to learn new stuff. Life is one and only and it should be lived at the fullest!
Happy birthday, Bonjour Chiara!
