The Thirty-Something-Year-Old Little Girl

What are you doing? Reading Enid Blyton all over again?! How old are you? Why are you watching youtube videos about young celebrities? They’re kids, for goodness’ sakes! How come you visit TMZ and eOnline so many times a day?

And I like Robert Pattinson, for your information, and some other moms actually think I am bonkers.

That’s what I get, CONSISTENTLY, when I tell people what I do during my free time. Watching celebrity interviews, goggling and googling young, hot celebrities and reading children’s books…I’ll admit that it is not something that a thirty-something woman does with her free time. Well, you know what? I’ll continue doing it until I don’t feel like doing it anymore because doing these things makes women like me feel younger. It keeps things in a, sort of, dream-like state and takes us away from reality (if that is what one is looking for) because reality can be (very often) overwhelming.

Outdoors and trying to feel alive
The other thing that women MY AGE should do is to get outdoors and have some real fun! I’ve not been on a bicycle since I touched my twenties and when I did it again, the feeling was liberating.

It’s like you’ve been waiting for the candy for years and years and years only to be told that you can’t because it’ll all go to your nether regions behind; and then one day, someone hands you the candy.

Liberating is the word.

Keeping your heart young
You know how we complain to our neighbors or best-friend about how boring life is because you’re caught in this endless cycle of chores that never ends. I mean, really….does it ever end? You think you’re done with the batch of laundry? Done? Think again. Here comes another batch. The conundrum of everyday life….sigh…if it doesn’t catch you now, it’ll catch you sooner of later and if you don’t put effort into keeping your heart from getting old, you will EVENTUALLY feel a little lived-out. Like you’ve lived but not lived enough. What a horrible feeling that must be.

Pushing yourself to do those things simply because…
I know, I know….there will be doubts, there will be questions about how will you ever find the time? About the floor’s going to be filthy? Or your clients are going to be calling you? But if we really see the benefits of doing something that makes that little girl (or guy) in us happy, we schedule ourselves into our organizer…that’s what we do!

If your job or family members or business is important enough for you to schedule in an appointment for them, then aren’t YOU important enough for you to schedule YOURSELF in too?

I, Being a Mother

I became the mother at the age of 20. The feeling I got is inexpressible. I was not prepared to take this responsibility. I was unemployed. My mother died when I was very young. I had to struggle a lot to earn a livelihood. It was a very struggling era of my time. I cried when I…
