I like birthdays because they signify another year lived – one spent with people I love and one spent creating, experiencing, traveling, and learning. At the same time, I’m a little terrified of growing older; I’m nervous about all of the other people growing older too and people and pets passing on. But I read that worrying is like praying for something you don’t want to happen. So instead of my usual anxiety about becoming 27, I am going to spend it thinking about ways to savor my youth: appreciating every moment because time is so crucial to me, getting fancy and being bold because life’s too short not to, and listening to the sweet, sweet music that makes me full inside. (These material things might help in those endeavors).
