This is my month. My BIRTHDAY month. It's my last few days in my 30s and I'm headed into my 40s.
I'm not sure why, but I was usually depressed right around my birthday and, unfortunately, the only people that actually see me depressed is my husband and (maybe a couple of my kids). Honestly, it used to hurt my feelings that sometimes other people close to me didn't acknowledge my birthday unless it was a reminder on social media. Also, many times I felt that I wasn't where I needed to be in life (whatever that is).
Well I've learned to accept things as they are and concluded that I just have too many expectations. It was this way of thinking that was killing me inside. I decided that, moving forward, I'm going to just do me and disregard anything or anyone that may remotely make me feel upset.
So, cheers, to positive thinking and this next chapter of my life!

Mari here! Most that know me pronounce it "Mary" because of my full name (Marilou) but I've come to realize I'd like to be called "Mawry" (but it's probably too late, ya know?) ... however, I won't ever correct anyone if they say my name the latter way!
