25 did not bother me. Many of my friends are older. I think that keeps me young because when I think of old people, I think of my friends and well, they are old.
I'm going to be 28 next year. Part of me feels old. My sister, who is one year younger than me is going to be a mom early next year. My brother and his wife are also expecting. I look at the positives. I don't have any sign of crows feet; not a wrinkle on my face, I'm in better shape than a lot of people younger than myself and just the other day, I got carded for a lottery ticket and this other lady I was speaking with asked me what High School I go to. Then, there are other things that make me glad to be 27. First, someone the other day posted about how they are so concerned with their appearance and what people think of them, and generally, younger people have a real issue with self-confidence, self-image and the like. A great advantage to turning 25 is gaining the wisdom to not worry about the small things. Of course there are probably bigger fish to fry, but if you have set goals in life, at 25 surely one should be able to look back with happiness on completing them.
