Did the world stop turning? Did I suddenly look older? Did I suddenly think any differently? NO
Its just a bloody number, but why do we celebrate milestone birthdays?
I did mine a bit different
I took my family out for dinner to one of my favourite French restaurants then on to a dodgy pub to listen to some blues and on Saturday, we went for brunch. We shared a meal as a family, which is what I like to do. Tomorrow I will share another meal with good friends. End of celebrations.
It has been nice to receive presents like flowers and cupcakes (I did eat some even though I am supposed to avoid gluten!!) but I have never been one to make a fuss about birthdays and presents. Its just another day to me. The only special thing I do on my birthday is to take a day off work.

Do I feel wiser? Maybe not wiser, just more sensible, but then I always was sensible and practical. I have realised that we have one life to lead and no one is responsible for our happiness except ourselves. I am happy with who I am, I am complete.
