What is it about bloggers and the whole "I cannot believe I'm 24. When did I get this old!??!"
Reality check: 40's are the new 30's. 30's are the new 20's. And 20's are babies.
Enough blogger nonsense.
Yes, I'm 28. Although, for the record, I completely missed my 27th birthday, so perhaps I'm actually 27 this year? You see, last year we left Los Angeles on May 22nd, and arrived in Sydney on May 24th, a mere fifteen hours later. Thus, I missed my birthday. Nevertheless, I don't think time-keeping works that way, or all Hollywood stars would cross the international date line annually on their birthday.
Despite starting my 27th year by missing my birthday, it's been an amazing year. Jeff quit a job he hated, we moved to Australia, I traveled to India for a month with my dad, Jeff got to spend two months in MI with his family, I traveled to Thailand on a work trip, we drove more than 50 hours combined to see lots of Australia, I snuggled a koala, got attacked by wallabies, and learned to surf. I took on a struggling, poor performing territory with work...and turned it into the #1 in the country. I fell more in love with my husband, and deepened my spiritual practice. Yes, it was a wonderful year.
And, what's more, I believe my 28th year will be even better. You see, from what I can tell, life just keeps getting better. Every year, I feel more confident in myself, more comfortable in my skin, and more in awe of what the Universe has planned for me.
Happy Birthday to me!
