When did this happen?

Y'all. I am kind of freaking out right now. 

I am TWENTY YEARS OLD. First time saying that and I'm so glad I could get that off my chest. This morning when my mom called to wish me a Happy Birthday she asked the question, just like every year, "Do you feel older?"

My answer for the first 19 years of my life: No?

My answer today: Yes. When did this happen? Once I turned 16 and got my drivers license I think that's when I quit acknowledging I was getting older. 

It's funny how life works. I remember being in fourth grade and my teacher had a few different former students that would come visit her every once in a while. Those girls looked to be around 20 and I just remember thinking "I can't wait to be that old." They were so beautiful, had keys in their hands, had the longest and prettiest hair and the cutest clothes and I just could not wait. And now I'm that old and I don't think I want to be this old anymore! 

Don't get me wrong, I love getting older. Growing up. Maturing. But it's simply mind blowing that a few years ago I was just a small fourth grader. 

The scary part? I hear it time only begins to go faster and faster the older you get. 

I'm not afraid of getting older, I'm not afraid of the world that I live in and I can't wait for the rest of my life to unfold right before my eyes. I have big things planned for this life of mine and know that the Lord does to.  I also know that everyday we have isn't promised and I don't take that lightly!
My nineteenth year was as beautiful as the rest of them and I can't wait for my twentieth! 

Cheers Y'all!
