Eight Months

My 40th birthday is a mere eight months away, November 21, 2010.

I hereby grant you permission to start celebrating NOW, as I plan to do for the rest of the year--yes, all the way to December 31! Why not?

It may sound strange, but I'm PUMPED about my birthday. I have never been so happy, so productive, so . . . dare I say it . . . rational in my whole entire life, and as far as I can see, things will only get better! Not that bad things won't happen; don't misunderstand. But the things that are within my control ARE in my control. And that knowledge is such a comfort and source of happiness in its own right.

So, what should I do for my birthday today? I think I'll make dinner and spend time with my family. Now what will you do to celebrate my birthday? Something selfish, I hope. :o)

ABSOLUTELY NOT. This is a big birthday and you have to celebrate in a big way. It would be irrationally selfish to not party with everyone who loves you! (Or at least those who love you and cocktails and live close enough.)

I really smiled on this though and said to myself, why not!

Let me greet you in advance: May you have a wonderful birthday! Hope that looking back in your 40 years will give you a seamless amount of joy and satisfaction. What your doing is just great as the old saying goes: carpi diem :>

Happy 40th Birthday in Super Advance!
