I think what I like the most about birthdays is that you’re still all the ages you’ve been, packed inside the human you’re today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let me try to put this into perspective.
One day you may feel like its all too much and you just let yourself cry like a 2 year old.
Other days, when you’re all grownup and dealing with grownup stuff, you may just wanna lay down next to your mamma like you did when you were 5.
Or maybe someday, you just wanna forget it all and dance all night, and that may be the part of you that still feels like 17.
So before you ask me how it feels to grow old, let me tell you it feels lovely, cause all the people I’ve ever been are still held dearly inside my 23 year old heart.
