happy birthday to me

Today the tens place changes a digit. I'll be honest, it did mess with my head a bit. Girly asked me if I felt any different, and it was hard to answer her. I do feel different... but how to explain that to a 10 year old? For the first time, I feel thankful to have made it to this birthday, because many others don't. I feel confident in who I am and what I believe in. I feel... grounded. I feel at peace.

Forty feels pretty good.

Happy birthday!

Yeah, forty feels okay ... until you decide you're still young enough to do twenty push-ups ;).

Welcome to your fourth decade - may you see four more ... or more ;).
