I had wished for two things and I got them for my birthday.  To me, a birthday should be about celebration, but also about the things you love or wish.  It is the day that you go all me-me-me, and you are entitled to it, simply because it is your special day, a celebration of the day you came to be on this planet.  That is big!  It is the day that you should take off from work, sleep late, and indulge yourself with all your favorites.  It is a day to pamper and spoil yourself rotten – it is all about you.  If nobody remembers it, you did, and you were good to yourself, and that counts too.  Make your day count, you are not an amoeba (not that there is anything wrong with being an amoeba) you are special, so start treating yourself that way.

For my birthday, two wishes came true – a copy of The Grievers from author Marc Schuster and a Maneki Neko sculpture from artist Christina Colwell of Helix Art and Glass.  Both things, I have coveted for a while and finally got them on the perfect day.   Here is a picture of them.

Now, I have plans for my anniversary, which is coming soon :)  but that my friends, is another post.

Here I leave you with this blog post from thoughtsontheatre – http://thoughtsontheatre.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/how-to-be-kind-to-yourself/

and an expression from a fellow blogger Eric Wang – Healthdemystified  that I read and love – “I’m gonna live my life in constant beta.”
