Victoria Elizabeth explores her feelings on turning 45 and accepting the person she is.
It comes every year and there are some who try to forget it or not make a big deal about it (I am not one of them). It’s your Birthday. Mine was the 9th of February, my 45th on this planet and just 5 years away from 50. As with most people I don’t like getting old, but I am glad that I have the chance to get old as so many people like myself do not.
With birthdays there comes a lot of thinking about time and where you have gone in life. No, I am not going through a midlife crisis. I am not going to run to Vegas (I still want to go one day) or anything like that, but I have been thinking a lot in the last month running up to my birthday. I could sit here and think about how I have been on this Earth for 45 years now, and for most of that time I was not living as my true self. I could think that I wasted those years, but to be honest I don’t feel that way at all right now.
