‘You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.’ George Burns

The first of October means it’s my birthday.

It means I’m 37 years old.

It means I’m a year older.

It means I’ve survived another year.

There is a reason I fight so hard and it is because I love life and want to enjoy it to the fullest.

I didn’t do the Lemtrada and the Paxil change for no reason.

I did it because I want more.

I want to die, wrinkled, tattooed, scarred and with no weeping at my funeral telling one another that ‘it’s a pity, she had such a hard/sad life.’

Nah, I want people to remember the life force that I was, the zeal I shared and the hunger I had for more.

I know it’s not always on display.

Sometimes other things take over but it’s always in there.

Sometimes it’s just hiding.

I’m like the comeback kid, I’ll always bounce back. I will this time too.

Here’s to 37 and making it count!

Thanks for all ❤️

  1. Happy Birthday!! I’m with you on that one – let’s leave skid marks into our graves. Just not on our underwear! 😳 I hope you’ve had a wonderful day, and that the next year is fantastic! My youngest’s birthday is tomorrow – you Libra ladies rock! 💕

  3. Happy belated birthday sweetie! Our birthday’s are so close together and now we are both 37. I don’t know about you but some days I feel like I am 73. All we can do is keep fighting the good fight and survive another year. I hope you are doing well sweet girl and I hope your birthday was great!!! Again, I am so sorry I am late with the move and starting a new job I am so far behind with everything!!
