Turning 25

So I turned 25 yesterday!!! Aaah! I actually don't know how I feel about this. On the one hand it's just another birthday on the other hand it scares the bejeezus out of me! I mean 25! A quarter of a century! Surely I should be feeling like a proper grown up by now. Instead I still feel like a little kid. I still get that excited feeling you get as a little kid the night before your birthday or christmas even though I know I am going to be disappointed because it just isn't the same anymore.

The scary thing is I'm still not doing what I want to with my life, actually no, the scary thing is I have no idea what I want to do with my life yet. All I know is I want to be doing something I love, something worthwhile doing, something I can look back on and be proud of. What that is and how I'm going to do it, I have absolutely no idea at all.

Don't get me wrong my life isn't all doom and gloom. I think I have done pretty well for myself, I just always think there has to be more. I don't like when things get boring and I'm not being challenged. 
I have achieved a fair bit though. I have been working in retail since the age of 16 and managed to work my way into a deputy manager position until my depression took over last year leading to me stepping down. At the age of 22 I bought my first house with my then boyfriend and this year I married him. I definitely think I am older than my years and I just need to remind myself now and again that there is plenty of time yet.

I had a nice quiet day yesterday, I went for lunch with my mum and my mother-in-law. That was nice, and then last night graham and I made some party food and watched Frozen with a glass of wine. 

How do you feel about getting older? Does it ever bother you?

I'm going to be completely honest with you and say my excitement about my monthly Glossybox coming to the door had kind of fizzled out. It had become more of a nice surprise when it came to the door because I just wasn't getting excited about it beforehand. However good old Glossybox has restored my faith this month, this box is fab. The box itself is a special pop art one, I love it. There is 4 full size products and 2 good sample size products and I'm sure I will get use out of all of them. Can't wait to give them all a shot :)
