39 | 7 Nov 2011, GB3 | @2012
Just so I'd remember how I looked when I turned 39.
Taken on my birthday dinner November last year.
And yes, I will not make excuses for my eye wrinkles and imperfect skin.
Or my excess pounds or my love handles.
Because if there's anything I learned, it's that character is more admirable than well-defined calf or abs.
I learned, too, that a beautiful mind is better than a beautiful face.
And that having family and friends who love you unconditionally is, hands down,
way more important than owning a high-end camera.
I'm grateful for all the blessings of the last decade.
I'm excited about starting a new one.
I will rock my 40s. That's a promise. :)
Thank you CBB for this picture.
