Happy Birthday to me! Today it’s my birthday, let’s celebrate with a giveaway

Today is the day I’m blowing out 35 candles. I can’t believe it! With a blink of an eye, the years went by. When writing this I feel even older. But with age comes wisdom and I am happy with that.

count your blessings

Last week I told you guys that I wasn’t looking forward to my birthday because I would like to postpone the years, or actually my age. Someone replied to my blog that she was happy to be turning 64. Why? Because a few dear friends of her didn’t make it to that age. So even she was almost twice my age, she was counting her blessings. Happy to be alive. This made me think. Why not embrace life, just the way it is? I don’t mind my new age anymore. Being born in 1981 has it’s charms.

what’s a number

It’s true, you really don’t feel thirty-effing-five. It’s just a number. Just like my size! Why accepting my body the way it is and worrying about my age? Let’s stop this and just make it the best year ever. I’ve got lots of plans, lots of ideas for 2017.

    Van harte gefeliciteerd en nog vele jaren!!! 35 is nog niet oud hoor, dat word ik volgend jaar ook. ;) Ik doe heel graag mee aan de winactie, omdat ik er toch weer wat kilootjes bij heb en vorige week zelfs uit de rits van mijn favoriete jeans knalde. (Schijnbaar komt dat wel met de jaren. haha) Mijn garderobe kan daarom wel wat uitbreiding gebruiken. Ik was al volger op Twitter en nu ook op FB en Instagram.
