This is the beginning of my 37th year. It’s not a milestone birthday and it’s an odd number at that, but this is the year that it seems that it is finally coming together. Not just because I am getting married (and that certainly is a blessing and a bonus) but because I was SO depressed about turning 35 and turning 36 was a kind of coming out party. 37 seems to be year that folks don’t give an eff anymore. Or is that when you turn 40??? LOL!!!
I have always been pretty self aware but it took me a long time to fully get comfortable in my skin, and even though I have my own personal moments of self doubt, for the most part I’m doing OK. Life is pretty good. I am certainly very blessed with wonderful family, supportive friends and a loving fiance’ and I damn sure am not complaining about that!
And the best thing about being 37????
AND. I. DO. WHAT. I. WANT.
That’s probably the best gift of all.
