Today is another anniversary of my spending another 365.25 day journey around the sun. I’ve managed to make it through another year of life… and as depressing as that sounds, I’m not feeling all that depressed.

It took me some time to get over the fact that I’m over 30. I still don’t feel over 30, but I most certainly am. It’s certainly easier on days like today to feel all upset and depressed. After all, aging is almost a dirty word when you’re female.

But instead on waxing poetic and getting upset that I’m no longer as young as I used to be, I’m going to focus on all the awesome things that I have in my life. Afterall, I feel so incredibly lucky and feel that I have travelled on this long journey and things don’t really suck.

Sure, I had planned on having a career in the film industry already. It’s something that I plan on continuing towards. Movies mean so much to me and to have my words being spoken on-screen would mean more to me than I can even begin to imagine or explain. And while that is a goal that I’m working towards, I’m thrilled to be writing here.

I feel like I have more in my life now that I did 10 years ago. I have things that are intangible and priceless. They are things that I wouldn’t trade the world for. I have an adorable cat who isn’t exactly cuddly, but she has her way of showing us love. I have two amazing pups who are incredibly supportive of me in a way that only dogs can be. I have some incredible relationships with amazing people who I love and care about to varying degrees. I have an amazing partner who wants to help me achieve my goals and has been incredibly supportive. I have an amazing job that I love… and while it’s not my dream career, the job is so amazing that even if I did sell a screenplay and was making money writing, I would still work there.

I feel like a lucky girl. This isn’t where I thought I would be when I graduated high school, but, you know what, that’s OK. I love where I am right now.
