I've never felt this way before - giddy that September is here. The first of every month usually just means the rent or mortgage is due, the emergency broadcast system will do their test at 11:45 a.m., and I need to flip my calendar over. Nope, not this month, not this year. I'm ringing in September with open arms and a thankful heart. If you read Learning to Celebrate, you'd know that my birthday is in September and that this is the first year I'm actually going to celebrate it. My birthday has never been a big deal to me. Ever. I'd just as well work through the day and order Thai take-out.
Well, my friends, not anymore.
If there is ever something to celebrate, it's being, well... alive. Another year. Another shot at living your best life. I will never take another birthday for granted. I will not let another September 18th come and go without saying, "Thank you, God! Thank you, family. Thank you, friends. Thank you, life!" No complaining about the number of years, or even the number of white hairs on my head. And to make the month even sweeter, my little love will be turning ONE on September 7th. Oh, what a year she has had. What a gift she has been.
As for me, it's 36! Bring. It. On. I have a feeling this may be the best year ever. Oh, I've got all kinds of plans up my sleeve. Needless to say, the theme of the month is going to be - CELEBRATING. Are you ready?
Let's do this!
