Last year I was enjoying a fine-dining dinner of KFC, thanks to the generosity of Thrive Africa staff in South Africa. The year before that…in the bush of Botswana (sadly, no KFC or anything else remotely close).
Another year, another birthday, another country.
This year I am 34!
I tend to look at birthdays in a negative light, don’t ask me why. I guess its the getting older part that doesn’t suit me too well, and unfortunately I have this ‘glass half empty’ attitude when it comes to this day. I think things like…
‘No husband, no kids, no house with the picket fence, no dog….’ etc.
I do it every year, and every year I end up a tinge bit disappointed. But this year I am vowing to look at it from the ‘glass half full’ attitude (or at least I’m going to attempt to). Instead of thinking of the things I don’t YET have, I am going to make a list of the things I have been incredibly blessed to experience throughout my 34 years on this earth. I’m turning over a new birthday leaf.
As we say in Hebrew…. la chaim! (to life!)
