Ever since I was 9 years old I always wrote down a little something in my diary on the night before my official Birthday. I’m not too sure why I did it ever year. Maybe I was a little anxious about getting older. When I was about to turn 13 I wrote down that I was getting “so old”. That Megan should see me turn 24 tomorrow. She’d be freaking out.
I would always write down things like how much I love my friends, how I wanted to do good in school, and hoped that the upcoming year would be better than the last.
I still think about those things the night before every Birthday. This year I was fortunate enough to meet people who make me laugh all the time. I’m thankful to have my best girlfriends at my side for adventures and support. I’m lucky to have a wonderful family and a loving boyfriend. Having these people in my life make me feel less anxious about getting older.
It was just a Wednesday night when he asked me to meet him for a quick dinner. He had a rough day and had to work overtime. He was also feeling a little under the weather. But even then he managed to remember that I like extra scallions with my pad thai. It was such a small detail, but it’s the little things that make me happy. I love spending time with him with what little time we have during the week, and it makes me look forward to the days when I get to eat dinner with him every night.
