Its interesting that years back, I would have been dreading for this day, but as time passed, I’ve actually gotten accepting of the fact.
For some reason, there is always a stigma especially for Asian women to be labelled as ‘off the shelf’ and ‘unmarriagable’ when they reach this age.
But reflecting back, I feel more accepting of myself nowadays. I feel more beautiful, more confident, more healthy now as compared to just a few years before! And I feel blessed for the people whom I have met and love. Actually, I don’t think I’d want to go back to the awkward phase of a teenager again!
Even with some unpleasant encounters throughout my life, its just part and parcel that is a learning experience for me.
Morrie Schwartz once said, “There is nothing to be envious of the young ones. We’ve already done that. We’ve so much to look forward to”
And I think that I’ve so much to look forward to. Happy birthday, me 🙂
