Birthday Girl

My birthday is coming up, and when you are a woman of a certain… ahem, “mature” age you feel like you should get dressed and have fun to prove to yourself you still got “it.”

At least I think so….

I couldn’t be sexy as a teen or in my early 20s, so I’m still making up for lost time. I know there are more important things than being sexy for birthday pictures. Birthdays are times for epiphanies, resolutions or future promises to ourselves.

I’m left with my broken promises…

When I measure my accomplishments against the average woman my age, I think I’m doing okay.

But I don’t want to be average…

There are so many things I haven’t done yet. Travel wise, I haven’t been on a cruise or left the country. Fitness wise, I didn’t get that washboard stomach. Love wise, I didn’t find the man of my dreams. Career wise, I’m looking to climb. Financial wise, the page isn’t long enough to complain. The financial issue can solve three out of the four other issues.

I think about my mortality, how many “good” years I have left. I think about what I’ve experienced, accomplished and my goals.

Time for more promises…

I’m Hannah Erica, a Philly native and the writer for this website. I received my Bachelor’s in Communications with a Journalism certificate from the University of Phoenix. I came from a big family, and growing up we didn’t have many material things to play with, so our creative sides came out. As a child I would write skits that my siblings and I acted out, and I would write children's books to read to my younger siblings. More than a decade ago a started writing film scripts and completed two. It's a tough business to get work published, so I put the film script writing on the back burner and I write short stories that I publish on my own website.
