My 10 Fav Quotes For Birthday Introspection

I must face it. From this Monday, I’m officially 38 (Libra with Sagittarius ascendant). But I feel 28 and my hubby says that I’m acting like 18. Everyone considers and perceives time and years differently, I guess. In this post, I decided to gather my fav quotes about age and years for a deep and thoughtful birthday introspection. I hope you will find them inspiring, too!
