Today is my 35th birthday. I’m not one for personal ceremony or predicting turning points. But I do believe in trying to be a better person every year. And I’ve found that making public promises helps me keep them.

So I’d like to promise myself three things this year.

  1. I will be a more reliable friend (I don’t always do what I say I’m going to do and that’s just not cool).
  2. I will be more social (I tend to be a homebody too much of the time).
  3. I will smile more (for a variety of reasons).

So if you see me around, keep me honest and remind me. Thanks!
