Usually when this day rolls around, I bitch about getting older on GOACA and ask you guys to cheer me up. But this year I’m feeling fine—and really grateful—about getting one year older. Sure, this is the year AARP tracked me down, and the state of my neck is beginning to trouble me, but I’m feeling optimistic in general: about everything I’ve learned over the course of this strange past year, and how much more I know I can rely on myself than I did before the pandemic hit. What has the past year taught you, ladies? Please gift me with your responses in the comments.
