I am a product of New England, the 1990s, and my parents. I find it hard to do the same thing every day, all day, and instead, I’d rather stretch myself in all different directions. Here is where I’d say I enjoy sailing and rock climbing and traveling, and while I do enjoy travel, the first two are still on my to-do list.

But why the title? Broke on My Birthday?

Partly because I thought it was funny. Last year, the day I turned 23, I had almost no money.

Even more than that, though, I think the phrase sums up what I’ve been thinking a lot about: pain and sadness coexist with blessings and beauty.

I was broke but it was my birthday. I had no money (not literally, I suppose, but I certainly didn’t have any extra), but I had been given a whole other year to live. To breathe. To experience.

So, that’s why.

Check out my first post to learn a little more about the fairy tale.

  1. You have something far more important than money.

  2. I’m the same way, I can only do so much routine everyday. I find I’m happier mixing and balancing my different life loves. By the way, I love the title. 🙂
