“I know that only by owning who and what you are can you start to step into the fullness of life," said Oprah Winfrey. "Every year should be teaching us all something valuable."
I turn 39 today. And I know I'm supposed to feel old, because it's the last year of my 30s.
But strangely I feel younger than ever, probably based on the work I'm doing, based on how authentic I've been allowing myself to be.
Born on March 30, 1978, I'm exactly 30 years younger than my father-in-law, Bob. My cousin's husband Lee shares my exact birthday and year. And I'm exactly 30 years older than my only niece, Savannah, who today turns 9. This is notable when you remember that I'm the only girl of five in my immediate family and Savannah is the only girl of five amongst her cousins.
