Today I am celebrating my 45th Birthday.  I don't feel 45 but really what does that feel like?  I'm in pretty much the best shape of my life, I have a great family, wonderful friends and I'm happy with this life.

Reflecting on this past year, I have spent a lot of time learning to enjoy being alone.  And for someone who is pretty social, that has been a challenge.  Of course I still love to spend time with friends and family, but its no longer lonely or scary to be alone.  I actually quite enjoy my company.

So today, I have no plans, no agenda, and nowhere to be.  I may spend time with some friends and I may not.  I like not knowing what the day holds.  I think its a perfect way to begin my 46th year here.
