Half way to 40

Monday, February 20, 2012

On Australia Day i turned 20... I had a nice day at work making people sandwhiches ;) I was in a rush to go to work at 6am and didn't check my phone or facebook and completely forgot that it was my birthday until i was writing some dates on the preps at work and said out loud 'it's my birthday!' and my boss and i just looked at each other :)

I was saddened that night when i learned of the death of a very dear friend
But my birthday up to that point was a great day - i felt very loved with all the texts, calls, messages and pressies.

I was given a sewing machine from my family and am so excited to try it out! I haven't had time yet but i can't wait, i can tell it is going to be something i am going to be addicted to!

My birthday pavlova - Very Australian! :)

I am SO sick of being hit with nerf gun bullets!!! :)

He's still a baby!


Love his cute happy face :D

A few weeks after my birthday i went out to tea with some friends to the pizza pub. We had lots of laughs and the most delicious pizza EVER. It was fun :)

I had a nice day but the whole day i couldn't stop thinking about the fact that i am now 20. Which is half way to 40! I think about what i have achieved in my 20 years so far and how many goals i want to achieve before i hit 40. 20 years seems to have gone so fast and i can only imagine that the next 20 will go just as fast, if not faster.

I realised that i need to take advantage of each day and enjoy it as it comes. Grab hold of each opportunity as it comes by - otherwise i might miss it.

In reflecting on what i have learned in my 20 years one thing sticks out - something that my Papa has said to me countless times:

'You can't wish your life away, hen.' 

he's right - life is too short, i need to stop wishing and start living :)

Happy birthday to me :)
