On the 24th I completed another lap around the sun. For the first time in a long time “my day” was not filled with cake, nor shots nor fanfare. For the first time in a really long time I didn’t care that it was my birthday – it felt like just another day – expect for that it really didn’t.
I’ve had so much going on with my apartment that more than anything, it was just a stressful day. There was actually a lot going on between that and friends and blah, yeah, no, not a great day. Regardless, all that is in the past now and I’m trying to chug along to get these quotes done because I’m already on to my February challenge!
The older I get, the less I care what other people think of me. When I was younger I used to care so much about what people thought of me- even people I didn’t like. I may not have liked them but I wanted them to like me. Now, pssh, I don’t have that time to convince someone to like me. I have enough stuff going on and I’m more interested in spending quality time with the people who already do like me. That seems like a much better use of my time. I don’t wish ill will on anyone, I just know how much my time is worth.
