Today, I’ve officially been 32 years old for 32 days. Since I’m big on numbers, their significance, and paying attention to them in the world . . .  I’m digging 32. 5 is one of my favorite numbers. It symbolizes everything from grace to the universe itself. Since 32 adds up to 5, and seems to be the beginning of a countdown sequence (3 . . . 2. . . 1. . .) I expect something wonderful is launching in my life soon.

I know that no good thing is going to present itself to me if I am closed to it. I’ll need an open mind and an open heart to see the good that  is for me in this year. So, as an exercise of introspection, here are thirty-two lessons I’ve collected over my more than three decades of living.
