Today is my 54th birthday.
Whatever else birthdays are good for, be it eating, relaxing, enjoying life, they are good for introspection.
It's a good time to reflect.
It can be a day of personal assessment, a time to vow to change or improve something in your life.
It can be a day to look back on where you've been and look ahead to all the wonderful things yet to come.
Good for it.
I'm going with eating, relaxing, and enjoying.
Because even though I look like this:
I still feel like this.
