Normally, I don't think much about birthdays. In many ways, I treat them just like any other day. This year is a bit different in that I am now the age that my dad was when he passed away, I was only 12 at the time. In other ways though... This year I see it more as the start of a new chapter in my life.
Spring is here, so I'd like to see it as an opportunity for a new beginning. Yes, the past couple of months have been kind of rough, but I'm hopeful that this will be a great year of change for me. I'm pursuing new endeavors and some of the earlier rough patches have even inspired new ideas, particularly with regard to misophonia... We'll see what happens! ;-)
