Today, is in fact, my birthday.
And fun fact, I have become a dog person in the last 5 years (since I got my first dog) and so yes, I'll use dog pictures in my posts when it's slightly relevant.
I'm not going to tell you how old I am. Although I'm not necessarily afraid of the number, you reach a point in your life where you realize that your age sounds “old” to other people who don't know any better.
If you're 23, and you think 43 sounds really old, well… when you are in your 40's, you won't feel old.
People always ask, “what did you do to celebrate your birthday”, and sometimes, “what did you get for your birthday?”
The thing is, I feel like I have a really great life right now. I travel a few times per year, and am doing work that I love. I don't really do a good job “celebrating” milestone dates. I don't do birthday celebrations, anniversary celebrations, Christmas nor New Years. Those days are very much like any other day.
Is that bad?
Should I be celebrating my birthday in epic style? Should I be travelling to Vegas, and getting stone drunk, and doing things I don't remember or don't want to remember?
Nah, I'm ok without that.
I'm heading to San Francisco later this month, and we have a big trip planned for the fall. What I'm doing? Working. And preparing for the future as I always do.
Tomorrow will be better than today. And today was pretty damn good.
