Happy Birthday. It really is a birthday, the anniversary of the day we begin our human life.
I’ve heard people say “My worst day sober is better than my best day drinking.” No. I had some great days partying, and have had some savage experiences sober. But my worst day sober is more real than my best day before. My life now is bigger and messier and more meaningful and more useful than anything I could have planned for myself.
Keep it up, Sam.
