Today I'm 35. For the last 4 years I've dreaded birthdays. Mostly, I think it's because I felt like I was expected to hate being in my 30's, as if I was supposed to start feeling old. But you know what? I don't want to feel that way anymore. If I've learned anything at all, it's that life is about perspective and I'm changing mine. Jake said something in the car that really struck me. He said, birthday's aren't about the year to come, but to celebrate another year you've lived.
