It's my Birthday, and I cry if I want to.
That's right. It's my birthday, and I cry if I want to! And boy, did I cry. I didn't cry because I am one year older or because nobody showed up at my party. Quite the contrary. I cried because I was overwhelmed with gratitude.
As the new year also begins, I am wondering how many of us get so caught up in what we are going to "fix" or "do better", we don't take the time to appreciate the many things we already do well or have and are content with.
So my birthday wish is that you, too, take that time. Sure, make your New Year's resolution. But before you do, be grateful and celebrate! You deserve it!
