Another year older and what have you done?



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.
Me 41.
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.
thanks PP

i am enough
you are enough
thats enough
ok
