Just Another Day : Turning 31.

One of the downsides of working in the restaurant industry, as well as many professions, is that if your birthday falls on weekend, You’re working it.  

Same goes for my wife.  Who also works in the restaurant industry and who’s birthday is also today.   

Yes, we share a birthday.  Just separated by 6 years.  

So for us it’s just another day in the neighborhood.   Exchanging a few moments with each other before she heads into work just minutes after I arrive home from my shift.  

There’s perks to sharing a birthday though.   

  • I will never forget her’s.  Trust me.  I’m bad at remembering birthdays
  • I share the spot light.  Too much attention on me makes me uncomfortable.  

I do miss having that special day sometimes, as selfish as that sounds.  When someone else makes all the plans for you and you don’t have to worry about a thing.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
