June 5th 1978 - the day my awesome mama birthed little ol' me. A day I am very grateful for. I often forget my birthday is coming in the weeks leading up to it - Marisol's dance recital is the weekend before and we have Grandparents visiting, so I'm usually busy and focused on other things. Somehow the day always comes though, and it is always special. So here are 36 ways to make ANY day brighter, Birthday or Not!
So there you have it! 36 ways to make ANY day brighter. And yes, I actually did all of these today! I could have looked at today as just another hum-drum day in my life with a few gifts and cake (and FB birthday wishes!) thrown in. But a little change in perspective can make ANY day into a magical day.
And here is a bonus for you. #37 = Laugh. At yourself when you are silly or foolish, with your kids when they are being their funny selves, with your friend when she calls and says "Happy 29th Birthday!" (Forever 29 - yeah! Because our "age" is really just a number but says very little about us or our lives.) Laughter keeps us young at heart and brightens even the darkest days.
I hope you enjoyed my Birthday Post! If you want to give me a present, I would love any comments or if you'd share any of your favorite posts that would be awesome (and remember - you can search for them now! Just type in a key word up above - because I really stink at keeping up with tagging my posts so a lot aren't listed under the appropriate topics - and you'll be able to find it.)
And now I must call it quits and head to bed. Thanks for reading. :-)
Wife, mom, information and peace seeker.
