A letter to myself ... (and one to you too)!


Dear Self,

Happy Birthday! Do you remember that card you received from your parents many years ago? It had two hands holding flowers and on the inside it simply said: “Flowers bloomed the day you were born.” Do you remember how good that made you feel? Good!

Now go look out the window … Do you see those gorgeous flowers in the backyard? Yes! Those bloomed today. So many new and wonderful things have happened since the day you were born. Never forget the beautiful journey of life and the role you play in it. You make a difference! No one can take your place.
On this day – enjoy the creation of YOU and the people around you who love and celebrate the world being a better place because YOU are in it.

With Love,
Your Inner Voice :) ...

PS: Wonderful things happen when we listen to the kind and loving 'inner voice' that so often gets crowded out by the negative voices and outside events. My birthday wish is that we will all choose to listen and appreciate the good, kind inner voice that whispers softly to each of us! ... After all, there is only ONE you ... and YOU make a difference!

Happy Birthday!
Hope your family spoils you, but I know you won't be rotten, so I'm not going to wish that.

Happy Belated! Hope you had a fun day that was apart from the norm.

I love this post and they way you write. I love how you can talk positively about yourself, your family, and life and NEVER EVER sound boastful or me, me, me/ blah, blah, blah. I don't know how else to put that. So many other people try and fail miserably. You are always an inspiration and a delight to be around. Happy Birthday lady!
