They're Listening to the Weather

Monday, September 02, 2013

Hitting the big 5-1 today.

It is humid as hell.

I am running my 45th 5K.

It has been a troubling year. And it is times like this that I am more melancholy and reflect back, and the reflection is not a positive one.

I am well aware of what I have accomplished ... and what I haven't. Of what exists ... and what doesn't. Of what is easy ... and what is difficult. Of what is here ... and what can never be here again.

Now, don't go nuts. I am not in such an awful despair that I need medical intervention.

I am just tired of, well, of all of the stuff from this year from Hades.

And stuff is not the word I would use, but this is Spark, so stuff it is.

My birthday wish, to YOU, and to myself, is that we all deal with a lot less stuff in the next 12 months.

Enjoy Bjork.

    Happy belated birthday! I've been trying to cancel this year, but apparently I haven't gotten enough people to agree with me or something because, well, it keeps continuing. I hope you get your wish (in part because selfishly, I'd like less "stuff" too).

    Happy Belated Birthday! Dealing with a lot less stuff will be great especially if we are talking about a lot less stressful & negative stuff!

    Happy Birthday. The Virgo girl never has an easy life. She's born to a mother who wasn't happy with the money the father made, so she always fears she doesn't have enough. But Virgo is very smart and she makes a good health provider or teacher or both. Virgo learned to be critical because of having a critical parent. So, she always is her worst enemy with the self talk that is critical. Chose to be happy.

Virgo will walk away from a relationship and not look back once it is over. She knows she can make it on her own. She is capable of going it alone. But, she isn't cut out to be obese as she is a slim person by nature. She needs that feeling of health. (Virgo rules the Sixth House of HEALTH.) She has to take care of her bowels as they are her weak area.

    Happy Birthday - you're very introspective and aware. I like that. I've had a heck of a year emotionally, myself, and am starting to come out of the funk I've been in. It is taking a lot of thinking and sorting out. I find writing things down and making notes to/for myself helps.

Enjoy your birthday - I love being in my 50s emoticon
