I’m 26, now what?

So, this is not going to be the usual end of the week installment of Fierce Fashion Friday’s. I will get back to all the fashionable breakthroughs next week as scheduled but this week I thought I would do a special entry. First off, I want to apologize to my faithful followers (all 2 of you) for my absence these past few days but I was in Vegas celebrating another year of my life. It was a great time and I will devote an entry to the trip in the near future, so stay tuned.


Anyway, since I just celebrated a birthday it was only natural to reflect on my life and accomplishments. I actually like where I am at this point of my life. I’m with someone I love, I have a steady job (which most people would consider a career), my husband and I are in the process of buying a new house, and our family is expanding (Chandler, our dog). Other than missing my friends and family, who are all on the East Coast, I’m happy with where I am.


But then it hit me…I am a year older. I am no longer in my early 20s. I am closer to 30 than 20. When are you eligible to have a midlife crisis?


A couple of other things come to mind when a woman gets older:


  • Do I start using an anti-aging regimen (serums, creams, wrinkle removers?)
  • When do spider veins appear? How do you get them?
  • Should I start taking metabolism boosters? Mine is already running a little sloooww…
  • Do I start dressing differently, older? I always make fun of women that don’t dress their age, what makes me any different?


As those thoughts run through my head I realize that I have to start exercising on a regular basis and eating right. I have Hispanic genes so I’m bound to get thicker. Should I start depriving my body of bread?


So, food for thought: what worries you about getting older?
