31. I’ve never been ashamed of getting older. In fact I’m constantly reminding people of my age so that they know that I KNOW WHAT IM DOING – in video shoots, on business calls, in the studio. I feel like I have a beautiful skill set and I couldn’t be prouder of the years I spent learning to shoot, write, do business and perform. I couldn’t imagine feeling any more content in another life at this age. Every field I work in the only ceiling is my ability – which I work to keep growing. My relationship is beautiful. I have everything I want. I’m proud of my work. I love my dogs. I love my house. I’m feeling nothing but thankful that I AM KILLING IT. I can’t wait to see who I am at 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100. Happy belated birthday to me.
