Do I look 27?
My birthday is tomorrow and as I stood looking in a full length mirror today I thought to myself "Do I really look like I'm 27?" For so long in my life people have always thought that I am older than my actual age. I often feel like I don't even look close to my age. (I certainly feel my age though). My wife's brother is only two months older than I am and I always have a difficult time remembering that we're so close. He looks and seems so much older than me. I certainly don't mind my age and I'm not complaining about being 27. I just find it difficult to believe that I actually am. So often I still feel like I look like the gangly and lanky kid I was in high school. Even though I weigh considerably more now than I did when I was in high school it's just hard for me to get that mental image of myself to change to something older and different. It's certainly been interesting for me to reflect on my feelings about this recently.
"A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip."
Just a thought...
p.s. Sorry for the bad picture you have to look at but I wanted something that was VERY recent so I did remote shot with my digi cam.
