The other night, Patrick and I were watching a movie called Neighbors.
It’s basically the story of two new parents coming to terms with the fact that they aren’t young, party types anymore. Oh, that and Zac Efron moves in next door, sans shirt. (Hi, Zac Efron. Meow)
You guys, I still totally have moments when I feel like I’m way too young to have a baby, or to have financial responsibilities. There are times when I forget that I’m not in my twenties anymore. And when people don’t card me when I get a cocktail at the bar, I feel (more than) a little depressed. Oh, then I drink said cocktail-at-bar……and feel hungover for days after.
Getting old is the pits.
But, then….getting older has it’s moments too. Like when you wake up early in the morning to the smell of coffee and it makes you so happy that you can cry. Or when all your bills and taxes are paid and you feel so light and free. Or when you’re in bed at 930pm and all your single friends think you’re crazy. But it feels so good.
My new age has brought me new joys. Sometimes I’m so caught up on what I think i’m missing out on from my past, that I forget to take in the little pleasures of who I have become.
I’m getting older…and that’s okay.
Watch the trailer for Neighbors, here:
Hope you’re having a good week so far!
