Yes, it's true...it's my birthday. I am now 38. My friends and family know how difficult my birthdays are for me. Ever since my 25th birthday, I have really suffered through each and every one of my birthdays. When I turned 25 I went through a horrible depression because I felt like 30 was just around the corner and then 40 would be shortly after that. And you know what? That is exactly what has happened! If I had my way, I would stay 25 forever. But one quick glance in the mirror and I know that is not reality.
My birthdays are now just a reminder to me that I am getting older. Time just goes so fast that I feel like I don't get to enjoy the time that is rushing by at the speed of light. Well, unfortunately now I can't say I am 37 any longer. Now I have to say that I am 38! Gosh darnit!
