It’s my birthday soon!

This year, for the very first time, I’m not that psyched about my birthday.  For those of you who know me, you’ll know that I’m usually birthday befok.  I’m not sure what this is all about, this year.  I’m not afraid of getting older.  I know that with age comes wisdom, experience and memories.  Age doesn’t scare me.  Besides, 28 is hardly old anyway.

What I am afraid of is getting to 30 and not being on track with my life plan.  There’s so much to do, there’s so much to see, there’s so much love to give.  I’m worried that life is passing me by before I have a chance to really live it.  To really get to know people, to really enjoy my days on earth.  I’m afraid I’ll die before I reach that point where I can look around and see my grandchildren achieving their dreams.  I’m afraid of being mortal, I suppose.  That’s what birthday’s are all about though, aren’t they?  They teach us that with each passing year, we’re mortal and we won’t be here forever.

Heavy.

Quick, give me something to be cheery about?

    JEEZ, Chick!
    You know, *some* people (who shan’t be named) look at your life and think, “Fuck – look at all that that bird has gone and done at 20-something. That was supposed to be me, doing all kinds of fabulous shit before 30. Oh, woe-is-me, I’m such a fuckin’ loooooooser!”
    Have a smashing day and a spectacular birthday when it comes, no matter how you choose to celebrate it, as long as you CELEBRATE it! 😉

    28 isn’t bad at all – it gives you 2 years to execute a plan and ensure that you’re on track by 30. That’s exactly what I did and when I turned 30 a few days ago I felt proud of myself and it was an extremely good feeling.

    Get that plan into turbo mode!
