This year, instead of putting myself through the entirely self-generated cycle of hype versus reality, I decided to just leave the country for my birthday. My best friend and I booked a trip to Greece, land of luxurious beaches, gorgeous sunsets and more than a little history.

Soon, I'll be turning 50-something. There's no point in denying so-called aging -- it's something I wasn't always convinced I'd be here to witness -- but I can't help getting my real age number stuck in my throat when I have to actually say it.

Intimacy is often thought of as a term to describe romance. It is still that. However, I'm learning to think of it in a new way. It can mean being close to the dreams we value most. It also can mean being emotionally connected to those we share our lives with. Intimacy can be closeness to who we really are. I don't want to lose touch with myself again so I made a list of what I have learned in my life over the past 26 years.
