So I was making a status for facebook about how I recovered quicker from the festival this year as compared to last year. (Last year I was down with the sickness for almost two weeks! Three days this year is a marked improvement)
A friend responded to the status, saying she was impressed, because it often takes her much longer to recover from the festival (this isn't a sort of hippy-feel good festival... it is all night raging electronic music crazy times). I replied, telling her I drank less and ate better DURING the festival and it helped me recover faster.
Then I got the awesome compliment from her: "I think while the rest of us as getting older, you are getting younger!"
It made me smile :D It felt good!! I FEEL younger than I did at this time last year.
This feeling, that compliment, makes it much easier to be 30 years old this year. I feel all brand new and sparkly!
