Today marks the end of my 22nd trip around the sun. Whether you love them or hate them, birthdays are something special—they’re memorable. On your birthday, you can actually recall what you were doing exactly one year ago. Even if you did nothing—that day of doing nothing stands out from all the rest. The only other thing that happens with is holidays, and sometimes tragedies. But a day that’s solely associated with your change and growth? That’s a remarkable thing.
