This is how I feel today.

The sun is setting and it will never rise again. Tomorrow is the dreaded 35 and it’s all too late. I’m not young anymore. My life is over. Simple as that.

Happy birthday! Wishing you many, many more lovely sunsets! Interestingly, 35 was the birthday I dreaded the most and had the hardest time with. I've had 23 more birthdays since then and have the "Big Six O" right in front of me, but it was 35 that knocked me through a loop.

Jeg følte dette da jeg passerte 25 år,alt var bare bånn. Følte ungdomstiden var forbi,det var grusomt. Echart Tolle ber oss elske det som er, et godt råd.
Lekker bursdag!

Strange, really, it's just a number. Still it feels horrible. It feels like death is just around the corner.

Hege: "Love what is". Words to live by, but not always so easy. :)

Thanks, both of you!

Why is exactly 35 so bad? :)
I stopped counting (and caring) at 30.
Numbers are just numbers, they don't define who we are.

Tell you something. I've only recently found your blog, and looking through it, page after page of romantic rustic images, I got into a kind of a dreamy elevated cloud of happy... can't really describe it.
You must be a person who knows how to create that feel. In fact I think that is the way we should feel all the time.

Thank you for that experience and I wish you all the best.
Life isn't ending, it's just beginning now, you'll see!
Happy birthday.

Kære Bettina.
Med de gener du har efter din ungdommelige mor, så har du absolut intet at frygte ved at fylde 35 :-)
Stort tillykke...og nyd det for pokker :-)

Seyler:

I don't know. It just feels like I'm crossing a line. I don't know why.

Thanks for liking my blog, such beautiful words that makes me happy. I hope you'll visit again!

Lone:

Så snilt sagt. Ja, mamma er flott, jeg kan bare håpe at jeg har arvet hennes gener. :)

Jean:

Thanks so much. I'll try and enjoy. :)

Thanks all of you!!
