I’m 33 today. I am making a new playlist on my iPod titled “Happy” (original, eh?). This will be pick-me-up songs. Not that I need it right now – it’s for future use. I have found a great version of “So Long, Farewell” (yes, from ‘The Sound of Music’) as recorded by The Vandals. Look it up on iTunes or something – it’s great.
My life is good. In so many ways. I feel blessed, lucky and all of the above. I have most everything a gal could want (non-material) and it’s a nice feeling. Days like this remind me of how very lucky and special I am and I need to remember this feeling on the days that I forget that piece of information. My world is filled with the loveliest people you could ever hope to know.
I was talking to a friend the other day, pondering this stage of my life at 33 and wondering what I had to show for it (just wondering – not having a pity party). They responded, “There aren’t any secret formulas to what a person wants to do in life that we suddenly just find. Maybe you’re already doing what it is you want to do and where you want to be. If you’re making new friends at work, and enjoying the job and the city, you’re way ahead of many people — maybe most people.” Whether that’s true or not in relation to other people, it sounded so matter-of-fact and positive, like I’m on the right track whether I know it or not.
That being said, thank you to all the amazing friends I have out there. I wouldn’t be where I am today without your love, support and couches. 🙂
