Today, incidentally, is my birthday. Thirty-two years ago my parents gave birth to a baby girl named Athena. I'd love to say that the world was forever changed but that would be too egregious of me, wouldn't you say? I have indulged on this birthday. I spent a fortune at Simons the other day. Plus I've eaten a ton today which will be capped off by pizza, fried chicken & chips (as soon as it arrives, which I hope is soon because I'm getting hungry). It's okay for today because it's my birthday and this is the one day out of the year where I can indulge (read: get fat).
This day felt more grown-up than any other b-day I've had. It's my first b-day in Montreal for starters. It was a beautiful day - sunny, no clouds, increased UV index... I couldn't ask for a better day. In some ways I feel more mature and in other ways I don't. I went to pick out paint samples this afternoon and now they're all over my apartment. In years past I'd be wasted by now. I know that my tastes are evolving just as I'm evolving into adult Athena. I guess it's not a bad thing now that I think about it.
Life isn't meant to be the same all the time. We all get comfortable in a routine and when that changes for whatever reason, we panic and long for that comfortable feeling we had. One thing I strongly believe in this that everything happens for a reason. My own life is changing and since I've never had a situation that brought me comfort so now I welcome change. I know that I'm being led in a direction I've never been in before... daunting as that sounds, I'm fine with it.
Praise the Sun, my pizza is here.
