Which means I am due for a mid-life crisis in 9 years time which illustrates that I am not going through one now. It’s what I like to refer to as a ‘pre-pre-mid-life-make-over’.
This follows on from my post the other day about working out who or what you want to be. Maybe it is just another transition in my life, maybe it is because I am spending a great deal of my time with 7yo’s who have very few inhibitions.
But like a rebellious teen I got my ear pierced again, there’s been more inking. More colour added to my wardrobe, my hair getting shorter and shorter with the clippers booked in for this week.
Maybe it’s because suits are a thing of the past. Maybe it’s because I don’t feel like a fraud around the boardroom table, wrongly believing I am out of my ill-educated depth.
Maybe it’s because if there is a game of musical statues, goddammit you will dance like no one is watching and sing along like everyone is deaf. Maybe it’s the comfort from wearing trainers everyday spreading through me, maybe because I no longer feel I need approval.
Has this happened to you? Normal or just a bit laughable?
Maybe, maybe not.
This is me, shit’s happening, things changing. I know things will continue to change but at the moment I feel like the best is yet to come.
