So I had a little pre Birthday celebration with my friend on Saturday and she came over for dinner and drink and we were talking about my up coming surgery and what it will mean and what I'm worried about and what I'm looking forward to etc and then we were talking about my Birthday and she said
"OMG, this will be your last Birthday with this face!"
She was right, It bloody well will be! Ok, I know I'm not exactly getting a face transplant and I'm sure I will still look like me after surgery, but there will be some dramatic changes and my face will not look like it does now at my next Birthday!
What a weird and scary thought! The more I think about it, the more it freaks me out a bit, this time next year I will look rather different, I will (hopefully) be happier, I wont have as much jaw ache, I'll be able to eat a sandwich without a filling face slap (filling face slap definition here), I will have nice straight teeth, I (hopefully) wont get any more nasty comments about my face and I can explore different hairstyles and glasses that wouldn't of suited my current face shape! It's crazy to think how different my life will be in a years time, and how much more improved it will be.
I'm excited for it! I always look forward to Birthdays, it's a chance to celebrate the year of your life just gone and all of your achievements and highs and the lows that you have triumphed over. Birthdays also give you a chance to look forward, to plan ahead, make new goals and develop new aspirations for the year ahead and I know that in my future 25th year on this wonderful earth that one thing will change for the better and that my life will improve no end.
So tonight I will raise a glass with my family and loved ones to toast my year just gone and say Happy last Birthday to this wonderful face of mine and toast to my future face and this brilliant year ahead that is awaiting me!
