  • Yesterday was my birthday.

    I was planning on beginning the process of putting myself back together again with an all day champagne party, with just myself.

    However, life made some other plans for me, without my acknowledgment. I’m trying to make the best of it and be thankful for the great things that I do have. (I know I have lots of them.)

    But honestly, I’m fucking pissed.

    I’m hoping this is going to fuel something great inside me. Something that’s been begging to be unleashed. At the very least I’m feeling something instead of standing in the numbness where I’ve been, for who knows how long.

    My birthday wish, is for everything in me that’s so fucking pissed right now, to push me to go and get and create all of the things that I know I deserve; but don’t have or are not currently getting, causing me feel less than what I am. I recognize that all of that is no one’s responsibility but my own.

    Here’s to 35. And to being fucking pissed.
