Remember when I said I wasn’t looking forward to the big 36? Though I’ve always been a birthday girl, celebrating to my hearts content and the demise of my liver, I shared weeks ago that I didn’t feel like celebrating much. I didn’t want to live it up even though this shorty always pops bottles on her birthday.
Well, my 36th birthday is in two days and I’ve had a change of heart. Even though grays have sprouted…everywhere. I decided (it is always a choice) to stop being a spoiled brat and be grateful for this last year.
35 was amazing. Full of changes, I proved that I am an independent go-getter and paved my own way professionally and personally. I ended a relationship that had served its purpose. I chose to love myself more and hold out for the right man. I was on FM radio in Los Angeles as the Love Guru on Exitos 93.9FM. I had my own place in Studio City, California and enjoyed the palm trees, beaches and great weather that La La Land offers. And I started over. I packed my bags, moved cross country and lived life without family and close friends for the first time in my life. I not only survived, I thrived. I know I can do anything now.
So, here’s to my 35th year ending and what’s to come at 36. And why I’m going to pop bottles, betches!
