Portraits by Sian
It’s my 29th birthday today! And it’s become a bit of a tradition to share a post on here to commemorate the occasion. In the past few years, I’ve toyed with keeping the blog ~strictly long-reads and editorials~ but I’ve never actually followed through. I still love the idea of Daisybutter being a space to collate thoughts, feels, etc. without too much rhyme or reason. And that includes these diary-like posts! I like that I can flick back to old birthday posts and read how I felt at that age and see what I was getting up to.
The fact that this is the last year of my twenties hadn’t really hit me until now. I’m excited more than anything, because I’ve felt that my late twenties have all blurred into one big jumble of a year. A bloody long one at that! There’s been a lot of shifting and change over the past few months, and I have complete faith that it’ll all amount to a more settled year to come. I’ve come to understand that time is a construct and we all reach milestones and realisations at different stages in our lives. To some, I’ve achieved phenomenal amounts for a 29-year-old and to others, I may have barely scratched the surface.
Me? I’m oh so content with how things are now. My friends are incredible, even though the circle has shrunk. My family are healthy and happy. My career is metamorphosing as we speak and I’m a-okay with it. I’ve set lots of plans into motion recently and I can’t wait to see where they may all take me. I’ve learned that I’m a thinker, a dreamer, a planner. I’m so Pisces it hurts (softly).
Let’s do this, twenty nine.
