Goodbye 28

So I am fast approaching my birthday. Last hour of being 28. I'm going into my final year of my 20s. Woah. How on earth did that happen?! You spend so much of your time wishing to be older, wishing to leave school, wishing to be old enough to go out for drinks with your friends, wishing working hours by, wishing days, weeks, months by for events, and then you stop and think maybe I shouldn't have wished away all that time. But then I stop and think that I have had lots of bad things in my life, and lots of amazing things happen to me. I'm thankful for all the people that have come through my life. They might not still be in my life, but they have had an impact on my life, they have shaped me, changed me, and made me stronger.
Whenever it's time for my birthday I always stop and think about the good in my life. This happiness helps me carry on, and pushes me to work harder. Getting texts from my friend Laura tonight made me so happy. We were just talking about normal things, but it made me remember how happy I am that she's in my life. Reading my friend Maggie's blog, and her mentioning me, I'm so happy she in my life. These are just two examples of wonderful people in my life. I am extremely lucky to have so many people, too many to name, in my life. Knowing you have people that love you keeps anyone going. It fills you with joy. Life is lonely. That's how most of my early life was. Not really being accepted for who I was, not really knowing if people were really my friends. But life is different now. I am loved by true friends.
I spent my last day of 28 with my mum, dad and sister. We went for coffee in town, and then lunch. We never really get to spend much time together just the four of us as we all have different schedules. Then in the evening we ordered pizza and watched Star Wars TFA for the second time this week. Now I'm tucked up in bed listening to the calm noises outside while laying in the darkness. Bring it on 29, I'm excited for all you have for me. New challenges in life, meeting new people, exploring new places, and loving everyone who loves me back. Life is so short, lets embrace it, love it, and mostly live it.
