No More Birthday Blues
For the first time since turning 30, I am not dreading my upcoming birthday. In years past, each new birthday would lead me to think about all my personal and professional failings. But not this year! I suppose it has something to do with me being in one of the greatest cities in the world. More importantly, I think it has something to do with the fact that I’m finally internalizing and acknowledging that I have accomplished quite a bit in my life so far. In addition, I’ve got a plan for the future so as long as I execute accordingly, other life goals will be accomplished in due. It also doesn’t hurt that in the past week, three people have shaved off at least a decade when guessing my age. For example, last Friday while purchasing the movie Secretary at Woolworths, the sales clerk wanted me to show proof that I was over 18 years old. In her words, “I have a really young face.” All of this lead to fits of laughter and totally made my day — really week!
