And...the sleeping problems persist. But if that’s the only lingering effect from what I’ve had to go through the last few months, I can’t complain too much.
So, at 5 am on this birthday, I think about my 34 years. I think about the start.
I broke my mother’s water, contracting at a difficult level right from the start. I caused her more pain coming into this world than any of my other siblings. To make matters worse, my dad passed out, having just completed an overnight shift of work. But after all of that, I was born at this time-5 am-on a Sunday morning in Newport Beach, CA.
I was an energetic, goofy toddler, a demanding, disciplined, and active child, and an awkward, closed-off yet obedient teen.
As an adult, I’ll admit, I’ve been stingy about who I share myself with...as if there isn’t enough to go around or it’ll run out once I’m used up.
I’ve always been 100% genuine, but now at 34, I’m actually allowing people to see it-allowing them to see me.
All of me.
I never make a big deal of my birthday. But this year...
Even I feel like celebrating.
