Happy Me Day

I love my birthday!

52 today, and so far I'm enjoying this decade. There are issues of course, but they are more to do with specific circumstance rather than age, and I must admit, the end of my menopause has been a real delight.

I always knew it would help. Decades of mood ruining hormonal craziness all gone, and I can't be like those women who claim that the loss of all that drama undermines their sense of femininity, that's outside of my comprehension. I feel like Me. There's an awareness of those weaknesses born and those made, the difference between fault lines and frack holes in the landscape. I am also aware of how fine it is to be strong and happy; one greater lesson has been that I have learned what it is like not to be those things, how terrible the world becomes for the powerless and the sorrowing. I don't want one pig, one bee, one person to hurt on my account, and there are deeper considerations too, but they will do for another day.

The outside world is dark with rain but green and full of flowers and fruit. I don't know how the day will pan out, but I like it already.

Happy Birthday Me!
