Birthday Girl Looks Forward

Today is the big day - my birthday. We are ordering Chinese to be delivered this evening. Every year since I was a child, my birthday usually involved some kind of special meal. Looking forward to seeing what my fortune cookie says.

As birthdays go, this day will be laid-back and quiet. I plan to work on my niche websites today as I have a lot to do, but otherwise no wild partying or anything like that. Now that I'm in my sixties, I can look back at my 20s and 30s with fondness, knowing I usually had a great time dancing the night away with friends.

Now, the day is spent more in reflection by honoring the past and continuing to look forward to the future. I believe as long as I have the desire to look forwad and move ahead with my life, I am okay. I love life. I love to see what is happening in the lives of friends and family. I am curious about the future, and want to stay around as long as possible.

Every January I write out my goals sometime during the month. I haven't formally written them down yet although I have jotted a few notes here and there. This would be a good day to get them written out.

I am glad I was born in January. It is great to be an Aquarian with the Age of Aquarius theme song rolling through my mind. The Age of Aquarius has kept me looking ahead when I see so many others dwelling on the past.

Today is a day for me to be thankful for all I have - a comfortable and peaceful place to live, my health is in fairly good shape although my body could do with a little fine-tuning, and my mind is still sharp enough to accomplish what I want in the world of freelancing and blogging. I should give a shout-out of thanks to the creater of the dictionary - helps out greatly when I need it the most. Spell checker on my computer is also an wonderful aid.

So, it is currently 32 degrees F when I am living and it is 8:20 a.m. Looking foward to a wonderful day. I hope you are too. Take care and enjoy the day for what it is and for whatever it brings into your life. I know I will.

Take care,
