Everything is Alright | Birthday Edition

October 27, 2017 0 Comments

It’s that magical time when night has quite decided to blend into the day.
The sun, well, she hasn’t even thought of coming up.

I haven’t decided if I’m going to publish this random musing, but as I write it, 3am ticks in.
It’s my birthday.

As wonderful as they are, especially as I get older, birthdays force me to look inside – it’s a ritual of sorts.
I dredge up past, add a dash of the present, mix in some sadness, with blind smatterings of optimism.

This time around, all I do is smirk at the silliness of it all.
Maybe that’s what growing up is all about. Fear gives way to something powerful.

I stare despondency dead straight in the eye and call his bluff.

Enfin, je suis reconnaissant pour la vie que je vis

I may not necessarily be 100% there but I am content.

That’s my great fantastical birthday message.
Everything is alright.
