27 going on 57….

Do you ever think you are sometimes too old for your age? Wise beyond your years? Wise is probably the wrong choice of words for me.

Because I do.

I am 27, going on 57 sometimes. I worry too much about what life has in store for the future, rather than enjoying what is happening right now.

I got married at 22 years old and had my little boy at 25. Yes, I would say I am young, although I act a lot older than people might expect.

I suppose when you have a mortgage, a husband and a family, it is sometimes expected of you. But is it really?

I am sure you can have all of this but still enjoy life.

Now I am not saying I don’t enjoy life, but there are elements to my life that are certainly boring and mundane. I do like things a certain way, so I do only have myself to blame for this.

But, I don’t go out often, hubby and I don’t go out often together on nights out, and we don’t have an awful lot of friends.

The friends that I do have live a little further away which means staying over if I were to go and see them and have a night out. Now actually there is nothing bad in that. It is a night where there are lots of laughs, giggles and wine consumed. Yes it is out of my comfort zone but that is because I do not do it very often.

I am 27 years old. I should still be able to go out and enjoy myself with my friends or my husband. There shouldn’t be any shame or issues with that.

It is all about balance. About spending quality time together as a family, but not forgetting who you are as a person.

So my vow this summer is to spend more time with my friends and out as a family, concentrating on who I am as a person.


Even though I am now a mother, I still have to be important at some point.

Do you have a habit of just being a mum and wife, and not finding time for you? Or have you managed to find that balance?

  1. It is hard to get a balance I’m hoping when my son gets a bit older it’ll give me that small bit of time needed to explore myself and my interests again. I’m also beyond my years I think. 25 when I had my son married etc. It’s going so fast already! #fortheloveofBLOG

  2. What a great post. And you definitely should make that commitment to spend more time doing what you enjoy. I felt guilty as had become majorly baby-fied (it’s Saturday night and I’m in my PJs with a glass of wine) so went out a few times with the girls and husband but found I missed being at home. Mind you, I am 40 so that’s probably the reason – old and knackered! 😉 x #fortheloveofBLOG

  3. I can totally related. I am the same although I’m perfectly happy staying at home most of the time. But when I do go out every now and then, or have a chat with one of the old friends, I enjoy it and remind myself it’s important to make the time.

    Parenting has made me feel physically old at times too – the constant lifting, bending and disrupted sleep leave me feeling very creaky! But then I get days when I’m full of beans and playing with the LO make me feel young again. Swings and roundabouts I guess!

  4. I think it is the eternal struggle us Mum’s feel. We should take a little bit of time out for ourselves though because we are people in our own right and it’s so easy to forget this. Sounds like you should have a good night out with your friends and let off some steam. Thanks for joining us on #fortheloveofBLOG
