Stuck between being old and young

As I write this post, I am 37 years old. I have 5 children (holy shit, how did that happen?), and am happily married. It has taken various mistakes and adjustments to get me to this point, but I finally feel that everything is in place.

Despite having everything in place, and the world ticking over nicely, I feel like I’m at a strange point in life. I still don’t feel like an adult. I still feel like I’m making stuff up, have no idea what I want to be when I grow up, and expect to be found out at some point. On the other hand, I feel like I’m getting a bit older, and that some of the signs of ageing are beginning to appear.

So here I am, feeling like a kid in school who has a beard. Neither part of the old, or the young, yet feeling like both at times. With the fresh start on this site, I’m going to explore what I can during this confusing time, that will probably last the rest of my life.
