a stubborn desire…
Today I celebrate ME! The birth of me! The person I have grown up to be! The person I will become! The sister, daughter, friend, girlfriend, employee, acquaintance; I am! I celebrate me today!
No one else needs to celebrate with me, for I am enough to know who I am and what I can become. If you join in, you will be welcomed with open arms. If you don’t, you’ll still be given a smile back.
I know I said I didn’t want to celebrate my birthday this year. It was the thought of all the terrible birthdays I celebrated in the past. But after writing that post a few days ago, I consider why those birthdays were so terrible and I realize that I made them terrible. I did not celebrate me, instead I let tragedies, unfulfilled expectations and people decide how I was going to feel about the day.
Today I realize I will decide how today will go. I will be the reason for it to be fantastic or terrible. It will be my decision. No one else can decide this for me. So, today, I decide to celebrate me. I raise a glass of champagne in the air and toast to 28 years of ME. I am the best I can be at this very moment and that is a celebration in itself!
Happy Birthday to Me! I wish myself many more years of joy, love, laughter, health and prosperity. I wish myself strength and wisdom for days to come and I wish myself success with everything I do today and tomorrow!
Here’s a drink to ME!
