THOUGHTS ON MY 45TH BIRTHDAY

  1. I think it's safe to say that I'm roughly halfway through my life at 45.
  2. Assuming I have a nice long life.
  3. I learned a lot in the first half of my life.
  4. I've made plenty of mistakes, big and small, but I can't regret them because without them I would not be me.
  5. And, truthfully, I'm really happy being me.
  6. My life isn't perfect but I love it.
  7. I'm not perfect but I love myself. I'm not perfect AND I love myself.
  8. And now it's time for bed. (We old folks like to turn in before midnight.)
