Last year E and I went out to a very nice restaurant to celebrate my birthday. Great place, good time. But… I made a pledge to myself at the time… this was going to be the last birthday I celebrated as the male version of myself. This seemed impossible at the time, but I meant it, and it motivated me this past year.
Today I put that pledge to the test. I went out for my birthday dinner this year… celebrating my 41st year… as myself.
Whew! I made it! And yes, it was much easier this way. My only regret is that I spent the previous 40 so off-the-mark.
