We’re coming to the close of my 54th birthday, and, as usual, I’m getting more than a bit philosophical

I like to take this chance to think about birthdays and aging and the quality of our lives. I’d invite you to check out my previous birthdays for thoughts on the subject

Happy Birthday to Me, Again, Part II

Now we’re passing out of my year 54. Last year I wrote about dreaming big. That’s important- but it’s not enough. We need to not only dream big dreams, but also be willing to step in the direction of those dreams.

Even if we can only take baby steps.

Do you have a dream?

If not, you need to find your dream- for our dreams are what give our lives meaning.

If you do, though, the question becomes what are you willing to do to follow it?

And what steps, baby or otherwise, will you make a commitment to in the year to come?

…So I had a lovely birthday living my dream by working on the manuscript for “Adventures in Palmistry” that I’ll be publishing soon, and spending time with people I love.

And as part of the people I love, I closed the day out by talking about living your dream and having the best year yet with you folks here on the blog.

So I get up this a.m., and come over blog-wards to see if there’s any thing I need to attend to, and I find that overnight,51 of you have checked in to share the birthday blog dream.

: -)


Just about one for every year I’ve lived.

What a great birthday present!

Thanks, guys. Happy birthday to us all.

More good stuff coming…

Last year on my birthday, I got to thinking about the experience of getting older and how to love it as it happens. And I had the honor of sharing those thoughts with you 🙂

Here we are again – it’s my birthday (52nd this time). And this year, I spent part of my birthday living my dream.

I’ve always been a writer – poems and articles and songs and this blog, of course. But I decided that it’s time to dream bigger. So this year, I’ve been working on publishing my first book. I’ve been celebrating my birthday today by spending part of it  preparing my manuscript for publication.

Got to thinking-what better use for a birthday is there than using part of it to figure out what makes your heart sing and then going for it? Do I choose to live another year of fitting into other people’s ideas of what I should be? Or do I  choose to have my best year ever, living my Life Mission and becoming more perfectly me?

Lots of people live lives of quiet desperation, or sorry mediocrity. But every single one  of us has greatness within us, and every one of us can choose to live in keeping with that Light that shines within.

A birthday’s a great day to set sail on the next new adventure.

 If it’s not your birthday yet, I’ll loan you mine….

Or you can start to live your dream on the 1st of January.

Or Thanksgiving Day.

 Or  next Tuesday…

Here’s wishing us all our best year yet!
