Today is the first day of Fall. The first day of Libra Season… and my birthday. Every year without fail I end up with the Birthday Blues. Tormenting myself over the fact that I’m not exactly where I want or thought I would be at this point in my life. Making myself absolutely miserable for no valid reason at a time when I should be happy and celebrating. Not this year though. I will not succumb to the Birthday Blues because I’m too BLESSED.
I am alive and in good health. I have a job, a roof over my head and food on the table. My son is flourishing. I have a loving family and great friends behind me. My business has been growing and overall this has been a very productive year for me, actually one of the most productive in a long time. I may not be exactly where I want to be in life, but I’m not doing bad at all. I’m actively working toward my goals and that’s what’s important. What’s mine is mine and it will come in due time.
Enjoy life as it’s too short. Live every day as if it’s your last so that you will have no regrets. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Work hard but make sure you are enjoying the fruits of your labor. These are the things that I remind myself of daily and I just wanted to share it with you guys in case you have similar feelings and need encouragement.
I’m 33 years young today but definitely a year wiser.
