Today I crossed the threshold from 38 to 39; yes, it's my birthday.
My thirties have been quite a decade, as I imagine for most. Hopefully the chances we took in our twenties have amounted to something and we're making a name for ourselves before our forties. A lot of us settle down, buy houses, have children (I gave birth to a store). It's been a time, for me, that is sort of the marriage between my younger self and ultimately who I will grow to become.
I had the strangest dream last night. I won the academy award for best song...random. I don't write or play music, so I'm not sure were the connection is in my real life. I did know in the dream that this was something I had created in my youth and was being awarded now through a strange hand of fate. Through the randomness, the thing that stuck with me as I woke up, was the feeling of being young - and believing that achieving anything is possible still. It was a great birthday present to feel that fearlessness and zest for life once again.
Cheers to my last year of my thirties!
