I’m Glad and I’m Proud of Getting Older

Posted on: November 25, 2015

For most people, getting old is terrifying. But to me, getting closer to 30 is awesome! I will be 29 by Monday next week and I would never ever wish to be younger than I am.

I’m proud of what I’ve achieved in the 29 years of my life. The older I am, the more battles I’ve won. The more struggles I’ve survived. The more and more dreams that have come true!

I’m proud of the things I’ve learned in life. I know best how hard I’ve tried to make myself keep getting better and better. I really hope, the older I am, the wiser I’ve become.

I’m proud of finding myself. I know what I want in life, I know what I deserve, I know what kind of life that I want to live in. I’m relieved that I’m no longer one of those ‘lost girls’ searching for identity.

I’m happy and I’m thankful for the wonderful people I’ve met my entire life. The ones who believe in me even more than I believe in myself, the ones who get my back even when I never ask for protection, and the ones who stay with me in better and worse. The longer I live, the more I know how precious they are.

Every stage in life is worth living.

When you were a kid and bruised your knees.

When you were a teenager and skipped your class.

When you were a newbie employee and so naive.

And then now, when you’re about thirty with those fine lines around your eyes.

I’m glad that I live long enough to go to the places I always dreamed of. Long enough to be the very best of me that I always wanted to be. And long enough to see how I’ve put a lot of smiles on my parents’ faces. And I hope, I will still live long enough to make the most of my own life.

Life took me to many unimaginable people. The super kind, the selfless, the brave men, and of course, the mean and rude people, cheaters, liars, hypocrites, extremely arrogant, and all other qualities that got me thinking, “I never thought such people like these do exist!”
But I’ve also come to learn that sometimes, there is a bright side of the darkest people I know. They’re not always good, but they’re not always bad either.
At the end of the day, it helps me to define the people I can bear and the people I can’t stand. And most importantly, it helps me to decide the person I would like to become. I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome!
