Happy Birthday

To me.

This has been a year of great learning.  Or, maybe, I'm just uncovering and practicing things that I've known all along.
Externally, I'm wearing my hair a little shorter, a little pinky-streakier.  Funky earrings are the norm.  I'm starting to have fun with clothes again, wearing more of my hippie prints and styles.  I'm caring less about fitting in with my conservative Mid-westerners and caring more about being true to my own style.
'Cause, after all
Internally, I'm feeling all sorts of shifts in confidence.  Testing my power.  Much less willing to put up with nonsense/rudeness/inconsideration/drama.  Whew.  THAT was a long time coming.

No, not me.  A wiki-commons photo of a double Alaskan rainbow.
Now, it's time to dream big.  And make big things happen.

Go, me.


  1. Go You! Sounds like you are certainly living right. When the drama is eliminated, we get a lot lighter...of heart and of mind.
    Happy Birthday! Hope you have a wonderful day :-)

  2. Happy birthday! Here's to another year of self-discovery and self-rediscovery! Isn't it nice to realize that we're never really done growing up, but that we're always growing into ourselves?
