Happy Birthday to Me
Today is my birthday. I am 47 years old. That is almost 50. At 46 I felt like I was still teetering towards the low end of the 40's but I am now officially well into my 40's and actually closer to 50. I don't care about birthdays that much, and truly have no fear about getting older.
I feel blessed to be a mother to my wonderful son. With each year I get older, so does he, and we get closer. He is a remarkable young man and I am proud of not only who he is, but of the job I have done in raising him. He is my greatest joy and greatest accomplishment.
I want this to be a year of growth. By growth of course I mean I want to grow emotionally and do not want the growth to extend to my ass. I am going to work on my emotional well being. I realized I have been taking care of everyone but myself, and I am overdue for attention.
I have a very clear goal of what I want from both my personal and professional lives this year, and I am going at attack both those dreams with guns blazing. It will take time, patience, and some therapy, but I am all in and I am going to get what I deserve because i am worthy.
To everyone who shares a birthday today, I wish for you all the things you wish for yourself. I hope you have a wonderful day, along with a year of health and happiness. Be brave, be kind to yourselves, and remember that you are worthy of all good things, so keep the faith.
