So, I took the whole weekend off. I know - slacker! I had a great time working on a holiday gift or two and doing lots of reading, dreaming, imagining, and scheming. Yes, I know I could have prewritten posts but I like to be in real time with you so, I didn't pre-write any.
I do love birthdays and encourage everyone to celebrate theirs. And really celebrate it, don't over indulge in lieu of celebrating, you know? You made it for a rotation around the sun, and you have another rotation ahead of you. Use that as a time to regroup and reconsider and start really planning for what you would like your next year to look like.
The thing of it is, we only have this life, and the more we can enjoy it and embrace it, without exploiting others, all the better. So, when your special day comes around, take the time to look inward. What do you want out of your next year? I don't mean thinking about things like winning the lottery or getting stuff or a raise or any of those fleeting, unimportant things. I mean really feel like. And then make a plan and make it happen.
