Okay, so it's only one thumb. I was taking my own picture so...
Today I'm the big 3-2. It feels pretty good and I always remember what Great-grandma Pearl told me...
Do you freak out at birthdays and resist turning another year older? I never really have and I think it does have a lot to do with what Grandma Pearl said. Being 32 is better than being 42, and when I turn 42 it will be better than being 52, and when I'm 52... Oh, you get the idea!
I may freak out over some pretty ridiculous crap but one thing I have always stayed positive about is turning another year older. I embrace each new year for so many reasons. Here are a few:
- Another year wiser - Life experiences from all my years leading up to this point have taught me so much. I've learned from each triumph and each mistake no matter how big or small.
- I'm on the right side of the dirt! - One of my clients said that to me when I asked how he was doing. It's so true! Life is short and it is silly to take that for granted. We don't know when our "time will be up" so as long as I'm on the right side of the dirt, I don't care what age I am to be able to keep it that way!
- Everyone deserves a special day - So what if you are another year older?! Having a special day just for you with family and friends is so much fun. I don't care if you say you don't want a big fuss, a thoughtful card, a phone call from a special someone, or maybe just a cupcake with a candle in it, can still be fun.
So do not fret or get bitter about getting older. Life is too short for that nonsense. Enjoy your special day, enjoy your life and take a look around at all your blessings and be grateful. A happy heart is a sure fire way to feel young. and my heart could not be happier!
