I stumbled on this quote somewhere and the words just spoke to me. I'm in my late twenties (relatively young I think) but still, lately I've not exactly greeted my birthdays with excitement. I'm not sure what it is that makes me feel that way, maybe the expectation to have certain boxes checked off by this age, but whatever it is, it's time to get over it. How many people didn't get the chance to reach this birthday? I think about the birthdays denied to my first love, who I lost earlier this year, and think how absolutely absurd it is to worry about getting older when he won't get a chance. I've decided, no matter what, I'm going to welcome each and every Birthday I'm lucky enough to get.
