Birthday Eve

My 25th birthday is tomorrow. I remember when I was 18 and my boyfriend at the time turned 25...it seemed so old and far away. While admittedly, 25 and 18 are a million miles apart on the life road....25 does not seem old any longer. In fact I still feel young and wonder about the many adventures I have yet to have.

[I came down with the stomach flu on Sunday night and it was awful. I seriously cried, because I wanted my husband and my Mom and neither was available to be with me. I really wished that there was a service that you could hire to take care of you when sick. There'd be good money in that I think. I'd use them.]

Anyway....the whole flu thing did get me thinking about what I have learned this year. Oddly enough I have never contemplated what I've learned in the past year at any birthday. At least not that I can recall.

What I learned between 24 and 25:

1. Happiness is a choice and once you make the decision to be happy, it's easier to deal with the negative things in life.
2. You can't be friends with everyone and while it hurts to cut some people out of your life, sometimes it's the best decision for you.
3. Going along with the previous one, you can't control others actions...you can only control your reaction.
4. I am not perfect and sometimes I do things the wrong way, but it doesn't make me a bitch, just human.
