I love my birthday!
Birthdays offer me a time to appreciate and reflect. They offer me time to celebrate the past and make plans for the future.
For years, I have spent my birthday waking up early (usually before the sun) and meditating or journaling about all that I am grateful for — my life, my health, my husband, my son, my mother, my TWO fathers, my sisters and brothers, and my friends. I love reveling in the appreciation of all the abundance in my life.
Throughout the day, I do my best to stay in that space of gratefulness...all day!
Even as I am getting together with family and friends, I take time to pull myself out of the celebrations and really SEE them for what they are, BLESSINGS!
No only do I look back on my life, but my birthday becomes my own personal New Year’s Eve — a NEW START. You know how they say “today is the first day of the rest of your life” — that’s how I feel on my birthday.
I feel ready to begin again!
