Sunday Inspiration: Happy Birthday
Your birthday is the beginning of your own personal new year.
Your first birthday was a beginning, and each new birthday is a chance to begin again,
to start over, to take a new grip on life.
— Wilfred Peterson
Happy Birthday to Me!
Yes, today is my birthday–and actually Proman created this post for me. I’m not confessing to the year but I’ll give you a clue: it wasn’t in this century.
I’m not whining about turning another year older since I think it’s a privilege to grow older when so many will not be given this opportunity.
I do agree that a birthday is a chance to begin again, perhaps not in a drastic turn-the-world-upside-down way–that sounds a bit exhausting–but as an opportunity to deepen my sense of gratitude, my appreciation of wonder, my depth of love, and my spirit of joy. Maybe it’s not the easiest moment in history to do that, but I am working on it, still.
So, happy birthday to you, as well, whenever your day may come. May your days and years be filled with great adventures and may they be good ones.
Best wishes for a wonderful birthday, Emilie!
Happy Birthday Emilie! 🥳 Hope you enjoy a wonderful, relaxing day celebrating it with Proman!
I always dread the day I turn another year older. But you are exactly right…it’s a privilege not everyone will get the opportunity to enjoy. So when my day arrives later this year, I’m going to be especially thankful for it and my chance to begin again. Thank you for sharing your inspirational message!
It especially feels like a privilege now, doesn’t it?
Happy Birthday and I hope your day is special.
Happy birthday Emilie! Enjoy your special day as you deserve it. You make our days go by filled with joy and laughter and you are so deserved to the same!
