If today is your birthday, take the time to do this.
Take the time to enjoy your day. Book off work. Take a vacation day.
Do whatever you want – no plans, no schedule – just do whatever it is you want.
Since it’s the beginning of your new year, pick three things you want to accomplish this year and have the fun of planning it out – envison your birthday next year and the joy of having accomplished these 3 things.
Take the time to be grateful for being alive to enjoy your day!
Take the time to be grateful for all you have.
Take the time to be with you – to enjoy yourself by yourself – to reflect how lucky you really are despite the woes you may be experiencing in your life!
Take the time just to be.
One day a year – it’s your birth day – it’ll never come back this particular birthday – it has a number on it and it’s the only time your birthday age will be that number again – quite significant, isn’t it? Isn’t it worth taking the day off from routine to enjoy your special day? The world will wait – it’ll all be there when you get back to it tomorrow.
In the meantime, you’ll feel fantastic for having honored yourself this day and the life you’ve been given. Think about it – have you ever done it? So few people do yet it’s the most loving thing you can do for yourself. Are you important enough to yourself to take the day off work, to tell your family and friends you’ll be doing only what you want to do this whole 24-hour period and to enjoy being with yourself?
It’s your birthday – Happy Birthday!
