It’s my birthday today.

I am thirty two years old. I roll the years around like cold marbles in my mouth, spit them out and string them.

I feel so old.

I’m scared of everything. I am raw and vulnerable, calloused and hardened.

I’ll take today for what it is. For now, I’ll just… be.

I don’t think you have to be all that into birthdays. Mine just passed too. Despite my family trying to make it nice, I was just in a shit mood. It is just a day like any other in the end.

Dear Lori,

It’s okay to not feel like roses all the time even when it’s your birthday, but remember that this is probably your depression lying to you.

I wish you a wonderful coming year filled with love and special memories and good moments in your new home.
