Getting older isn't easy, at least not for me. I remember being 16 and hearing tons of my friends talking about how they couldn't wait to be 18, 21, older. I was always afraid of that. In some sense, I have a Peter Pan syndrome/complex; if I was given the option, I would choose to stop growing and be 19/20 forever... That was a really good era, and I feel like it's a good age to be stuck in.

Unfortunately, said choices don't exist and we're forced to grow older and older each day. I'm 25 and I'm already afraid of the next 5 years; I was talking about this with a couple blogger friends recently and we said that, even tho we're getting closer to our thirties (you have no idea how horrible it is to write the word thirties), we really don't feel older than 21. People say that age is only a number and it doesn't define anything and maybe they're right, maybe I want them to be right. 

My birthday happened a few days ago and, although I know I added one more year to my age, somehow I feel younger. I think I'm doing this second chance at life thing and that has made me and my mind get the impression of turning back the clock, it's crazy, right? But that's not it, people have been telling me (a lot lately) that I look younger, that I don't look 25. That makes me feel special. As long as I don't feel old, I won't be old (at least I hope so).

// Envejecer no es fácil, al menos no para mí. Recuerdo cuando tenía 16 cómo escuchaba a muchos de mis amigos decir que no podían esperar a tener 18, 21, ser más grandes. Siempre me dio miedo eso. En cierta forma, tengo un síndrome/complejo Peter Pan; si me dieran la opción, elegiría dejar de crecer y tener 19/20 para siempre... Esa fue una buena era, y siento que es una buena edad para quedar atrapado.

Desafortunadamente, dichas opciones no existen y estamos forzados a envejecer cada día. Tengo 25 y ya me dan miedo los siguientes 5 años; lo hablaba con un par de amigas bloggers recientemente y dijimos que, a pesar de estarnos acercando a los treintas (no saben qué horrible es escribir la palabra treintas), realmente no nos sentimos mayores a 21. La gente dice que la edad es sólo un número y no define nada realmente y quizá tengan razón, quizá quiero que tengan razón.

Mi cumpleaños sucedió hace un par de días y, aunque sé que añadí un año más a mi edad, de alguna manera me siento más joven. Creo que estoy haciendo esto de tener un segundo aire en la vida y eso ha hecho que mi mente y yo estemos bajo la impresión de que estamos regresando el reloj, una locura ¿no? Pero eso no es todo, la gente me ha estado disiento (mucho últimamente) que me veo más joven, que no parezco de 25. Eso me hace sentir especial. Mientras no me sienta viejo, no seré viejo (al menos eso espero).
