= my age today!
Sigh. Getting older is never great, but I do feel very happy with how my life is at 41.
Things I am happy about related to my age:
I don’t have that many gray hairs yet. Of course I have some but not really to the point being super noticeable or changing the color of my hair. (While I go to elaborate lengths to keep my hair straight so i don’t have to deal with frizz, I have never used color. Not saying I never would, will leave that door open!)
I can still run without pain, and started consistently doing some strength training in my late 30s to hopefully ward off muscle atrophy as long as possible. (Of course I could always do MORE, but really did not do it consistently until then.)
My vision still corrects to 20/20 with contacts and no farsightedness has crept in. I’m soooo nearsighted that it actually might prevent this from occurring for a while. That’s what I’m hoping!
I have probably at least 9 more years of safely taking my OCP before having to worry about any annoying hormonal shifts.
Um, that’s about it.
Josh gave me a freaking awesome gift (Book of the Month through Parnassus Books!) and it has been a lovely day. I just got a massage + facial and am going to spend some time lounging around and thinking about the future – my favorite. More tomorrow!
