Reflections on a birthday well lived

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Well, today was one for the record books! I made it through the day without any birthday tears despite: my daughters being out of pocket for most of the day (one I didn't see at all), my husband having to work half the day, not hearing from one of my brothers (in TX) and having almost everything hit a faulty bump on the first try.

If anything, Spark People has taught me to look on the brighter side of things. All day long things seemed a bit down, but I kept looking up. I kept moving forward. And, in fact, everything continued to go upward!!

My husband and I (eventually) got to have some quality time together. My daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter finally got to our house. We had some cupcakes (and I had to many but dadgumit, they were good!!!).

I really think it's like that song: "Look on the bright side of life". The more you LOOK for the good, the more it comes to you. The more I clearly write out my goals, my vision for myself, the more I work out, the more I continue to "look up" the more positive I become.

Of course, sleep helps, so I gotta go do that. And happy days -- birthdays help. And weekends REALLY help but the positive can and WILL keep me going! So I'm going to work to that end, move in that direction and keep that bright light in front of me.

It's been nice talkin' to y'all. Thank you for all the positive thoughts and congratulations on my birthday. Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend! "Ten mucho cuidado" means "take good care"! G'nite y'all!
