Let's Celebrate!

Today is my 35th birthday. I'm noticing a couple things about it: Celebration is Fun and Aging is Weird.

Celebration is Fun This observation may seem pretty simple and pretty obvious, but it isn't always fun to be the center of attention. It is always comfortable to celebrate ourselves. If we're stuck in self criticism, or having a rough time, it can be tough to invite others into that stuck/rough place. I can always find my way toward joy and positivity on my birthday. I know that's not true for everyone, but it is for me. 

Aging is Weird I don't have a better word than "weird" to describe aging. Time can move incredibly fast and incredibly slow at the same time. When I look back, it seems like just yesterday that I was turning 25. Then I remember everything that has happened in the past decade and it feels like it took forever to get where I am now.

What is your experience of birthdays and celebrations? Has your experience changed as you've gotten older? It may not be your birthday, but I invite you to find something to celebrate today (and everyday)!
