You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
This is my gorgeous friend turning 40.
I thought i would feel different to the way i do.
i feel like time is running out.
i have wasted so much time in doubt and struggle.
worried and scared.
but i am getting that sense of living your life on my own terms.
cause thats all there is.
i am a mess, broken, fragile, loud and frazzled.
i am also kind, friendly, creative, a dreamer, explorer, control freak and in love with my dog.
all of who i am does not always fit nicely together.
i am not an easy person to live with.
i am interesting and worthwhile.
this was my 40th year to SHINE.
there were moments of sparkle, bit of tarnish too.
i don't know whats in store for me in 2012,
but it will be more of the same plus some extra adventures.
the woman above and i have been friends since we were little children
i love her and how we share our lives, the joys and challenges.
i am enough
you are enough
