I recently celebrated another birthday. A really big one, I might add, but, unlike many past birthdays, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Not because of the surprise party my family set me up for or even because of the nice gifts I received from everyone who came. No, I had a great birthday this year because for the first time, in a very long time, I prepared myself for the arrival of the day I would officially be deemed ‘old’.
