Tomorrow is my 39th birthday and my life has turned out nothing like I thought would but it's better than I ever dreamed it could have been. I have things I want to do and things I need to work on but there is very little that I can complain about without it being classified as a first world problem.
I have no set plans for my birthday. What does one do for a 39th birthday? I'll probably spend the day cleaning and reading and then make something good for supper since I very rarely get to cook at home anymore thanks to my work schedule.
Surprisingly this birthday isn't making me melancholy. I'm happy with where I am in life for the most part and that's good enough for now.
