Am I living my best years?

Reflecting on the passing of the years... I turned 40 in 2023, at the time I didn't think much of it give it, I was busy making plans. Some of my friends also turned 40 that year, some took it as if nothing, for others it was a little more of a shock. The latter, younger than me, asked me "what does it feel like to turn 40?" And I simply answered "the same as always", but reflecting a little I realized that when I turned 40 I let go of many things.


Today in the morning I was driving and a song came out on the radio that I liked a lot in my adolescence, Complicated by Avril Lavigne, I started thinking about that young me with baggy pants, sneakers and t-shirts and how, although she was already well into her adolescence, she kept climbing trees and skating. I thought about how one day my daughter would want to see these photos of me and maybe she would think "Ew mom! How embarrassing!", or "wow! My mom was cool," anyway, the point is that this made me think.

Is it true that our youth, perhaps our twenties, are our best years? In my case, I don't think so. As I said, when I turned 40 I let go of many things, although of course it has been a process that I have been carrying out since I was in my twenties, the process of maturing, but I have definitely learned to be myself and love myself as I am, and to let go of everything that does not serve me (opinions of others, expectations of others...). For me right now I am living my best years where I am already more mature, I definitely know who I am and I know what I want and I am working hard to get there.

Maybe some people already know all these in their 20's, it just took me a little more time to get there, but it doesn't matter, it's not a competition, we all have different paces and goals.


Maybe in 10 years I'll think the same thing, "Wow! I am living my best years, this is my best moment," and deep down I think it will be so, since every year that passes I continue to set and reach goals and get closer to that version of me that I want to become which is determined, strong and brave, knows what she wants and strives to achieve it.


I don't know if one day I'll get as far as I imagine, but it's definitely the voyage, the struggle, that makes me happy. For me, my best moment is the present and at the same time the best is yet to come. Every year I become stronger, more mature and more at peace. Aging is a privilege that not many have, and I am grateful for it every day of my life. As long as you continue to have time, there will always be a goal to achieve or a dream to catch.

I was in tears even before playing the video! Recently started watching Bluey and to be honest I am saviouring every episode, making sure not to rush through them. Luce as a kid would have love it too! Without all the sometimes extreme drama cartoons such as "Candy", "Peline" and the anime series called in Spanish "La Ranita Demetan" displayed. I also remember feeling sad and stressed after watching some of them...But Bluey is so not like that. I am sure this is appreciated by kids and parents equally. Cheers to all healthy, innocent and non invasive copying mechanisms! And thanks for sharing this one! 😍
