So apparently the birthday when the age you turn matches the day of the month of your birthday is known as your “golden birthday.” I turn 29 today, so this is mine. It’s been a good day, and I’m feeling pretty good about the upcoming year. Things have improved a lot in the past few weeks and I’ve regained a lot of confidence. I tried to make Yom Kippur a clean break with the past year, which was pretty difficult in some ways (though very good in others). So far it seems to be working well.
