I grew up being oddly shy when celebrating my birthdays. Having all eyes on me was not my favorite part of the day. Although they were happy eyes and well wishes I would tend to feel a bit weird being the center of attention. Over the years I would reflect on how far I’ve come and I probably wasn’t always satisfied with my accomplishments, usually due to me having a type A, Virgo personality. And then my 30th birthday came along, and now Im embracing this new exciting year, chapter and the attention it brings. I have a new outlook of endless possibilities.
