What age do you feel on the inside?
Actually, this is a complicated answer for me. Numerically I'm 31. My body probably feels 40. My face is still 29 (or at least I think so). My mind is a toss up. When I was in my 20's I felt like I was in my 30's, because that's who I was influenced by and who I hung around. Now, that I'm in my 30's, my S.O. is 8 years younger than I am. I'm influenced by his music and therefore feel a connection to today's youthful culture. As a beauty enthusiast, I stay up on makeup and skincare trends in order to better serve my clients. So, I've applied a more youthful look into my everyday face. There are times when I feel like I haven't fully matured due to an unchecked learning disability. Arrested development. Everyday, I'm relearning something my ADD helped me ignore while growing up. I'm experiencing firsts as a 30+ year old adult, because my past marriage left me in a place where I wasn't allowed to make decisions. Can you imagine, my first time shopping for groceries, alone, was at 27 going on 28? I spent hours trying to navigate the store with my list. It still takes me forever today.
With all of this said, I still feel like my mind is 20, but I have the responsibility ofa 30 something year old, and the experiences of a 40 something year old.
I said it was difficult.
As I age, I want to stay this young mentally. At 20, you're full of hope and ambition. You're still inquisitive and open to knew adventures and experiences.
