Now...a word about celebrations!
sit down...this is my gratuitous birthday rant...hee hee.
I am turning 45 today. Mid forties...yes. and, I love it. I am embracing it. & I think it's FUN & cause for celebration!
In fact, I think every phase of our life is cause for celebration! No matter what our age, circumstances...whatever. The trick is: FIND something to celebrate! I promise it will put a spring in your step.
My mom- the amazing women who labored to bring me into this world...45 years ago today...is my example of this. She's 70 & is one of THE happiest, sassiest, most content & fulfilled women I know. She embraces her phase in life & grows older w/ grace & beauty. I want to be just like her.
I think too much of our society is focused on 'staying young'...looking young, trying to be young- like people are kicking & screaming into the later phases of their lives w/ lotions, cremes, surgery, drinks, foods, you name it...youth is portrayed as 'desirable' & 'growing old' is taboo? and somehow BAD? um...no. it's natural. And there's no getting around it. *obviously is you are still young...enjoy it & feel good about yourself NOW!**
I'm embracing my body changing. I look in the mirror & I have wrinkles around my eyes, my mouth, my neck, my lips, my forehead.....I have sags in certain places. *ahem* ...but you know what? I love it! I embrace it! All of this just shows that I'm living a happy, fulfilled life as a woman, wife, mother, & friend! I love life! It's cause for celebration.
So...with this free gift I only ask ONE thing today:
Turn around & show some kindness to someone else.
Can you imagine what amazing things can happen if we ALL do at least ONE act of kindness to someone today?
