Today is my birthday: every year I dread it for no particular reason apart from the fact  I’m getting older. I can be found muttering darkly weeks before the actual event, from January onward actually.

Well, the day has arrived and it would be churlish to carry on with the pathetic self-pity when I woke up to cards, gifts, texts and so on from so many people.

I am very, very lucky to have many amazing people in my life, I have no right to complain about anything at all.

So, in that spirit, I will be sipping on French champagne by the time you guys read this.

I will be celebrating, not moaning about the inevitable because, older or not: life is really, really good right now—I am blessed in so many ways and it is not something I should ever forget.

Ps: I am aware I have probably already used up my quota of selfies for the entire year but…I don’t really care 😜

  3. Happy birthday! Getting older is awesome. Don’t let anyone tell you different, there really are some amazing surprises along the way. One of my favorites was suddenly caring very little for what others think of me. Very funny, but that was a burden I didn’t even know I was carrying up into my 30’s. Than suddenly…freedom.

    Have a good birthday! I like to spend a whole month celebrating mine. Pace yourself. Some things can’t be done in a day. 🙂

    1. Oh yes, I am much more comfortable in my skin now than I was in my 20’s. Quite frankly, I was a mess of insecurities then, ugh!
      I like the idea of celebrating for a month, why didn’t I think of that? I usually do it over a week…clearly I’ve been doing it all wrong 😀


  4. Happy Birthday (again), my lovely. I hope you have had the best day. I hope you laughed a lot and danced and partied. You deserve to have a wonderful time. 😘❤🎂✨🥂

    1. Better late than never 🙂 thank you!
      Is there not? There should be. For everyone. So many girls are sadly seeking validation through selfies, isn’t it the saddest thing? I wish I could tell them all that’s not the way.
      But, even for someone like me who’s never sought validation through her looks, selfies shouldn’t be used and abused. I’m just partial to them because I love fashion and expressing who I am that way

    1. Thank you, Michael! It was a good birthday in the end. I’m glad you can feel the wonderful energy in my life and that it inspires you as well…I’m thinking of those vibes crossing back and forth between the US and the U.K. 😏🔥
      I think I might be too much of a selfie slut now to respect any quotas, even self-imposed! 😜

      1. Well, I don’t know you so I can’t say for sure but Pisces (and INFJs) are very good at reading people even on short acquaintance…so this was my first reading of you and I’d say it’s accurate. As for your Pisces analysis? Spot on 😉
