The clock is rapidly ticking and in under two weeks, I will turn the big 3-0. A few people told me that they didn’t look forward to it at all, while others (a very select few) have totally embraced it with such positivity.
I am starting to think that most things just get better with time – wine, antiques and ones own depiction of their self-worth.
I have spent many years of my life contemplating what I believe in and struggling with what I feel to be everyday insecurities whereby I would look to others for guidance. As I age, the more and more this dissipates.
I have accepted that it takes time to have comfort in your own thoughts and the decisions you make.
I look forward to getting wiser, making more inevitable mistakes and aging somewhat gracefully.
To me, the most beautiful antiques are weathered because after all – they have really lived.
