It's My Birthday!

It's true, I LOVE my birthday. I love the attention and the love from my friends and family. Maybe it's an only child thing, maybe it's an extravert thing. It doesn't matter. It's MY thing. And I won't apologize. I LOVE my Birthday, and celebrating myself.

I deserve to love myself, and to celebrate me. We all do. I believe that every one of us has gifts to give, and the more you love and respect yourself, the more you have to give to others.

I am so extremely grateful for the wonderful gifts I have in my life. And I am especially grateful for the wonderful people in my life. Thank you to all my amazing friends and family. I celebrate you today as well.

Happy Anniversary to Me

A year ago, my car had rolled over 3 times,

dropped 6 feet and spun into oncoming traffic. It was one of the most terrifying things I have experienced to date.

A year later, I sit here feeling so extremely grateful that I was able to walk away with minor injuries, and that the experience has led me to learn so much.

In the last year I have started to come into my own skin, and to learn that I have great personal power, and to learn to accept it and to use it for good. I have learned that I have a job here on this earth, to make the world a better place. I have learned that accidents happen and life is not perfect, nor am I.

In the last year, and especially in the last week I have been a part of some profound shit.

I am so grateful for my life, my experiences, my learning and all the wonderful people in my life.

A year ago, my hand was bandaged, stitched and full of glass, and my knee was swollen bruised and throbbing. Tonight my hand has healed, and my knee is swollen and throbbing for another reason - a celebratory and commemorative tattoo!
