Turned 47 on 30th April 2013.
I would be lying if I say I feel differently as a person inside. I really don’t.
The most obvious difference is that I am physically looking older. I have more grey hair. I have 1st stage osteoarthritis. I am trying to lose some weight and maintain it. Wrinkles. I do still get comments that I am younger than my age, which is great for my self esteem 😉
I do think about menopause a lot. Not afraid but wondering. How would it really feel like for me. I read a lot about it but I prefer to have chats with friends and people I know. I love the fact that my friends are not avoiding the topic (the guys too). I believe if we have a positive attitude towards life, a menopause is just a stage we go through, deal with and move on.
I do think about my spiritual side too. I do want to be able to manage myself with the time I have so that I can move towards becoming a better Muslim. I hope to do Hajj. InsyaAllah.
I had dinner at TGIF with my family. Love them to bits….thank you. I don’t know what turning 47 years old feels like but I know what being loved feels like.
