Happy Birthday to Me!

I am not one of those shrinking violet types. I live large. At times I am loud, irreverent, silly, dorky, and just plain bizarre. I like to think of it as eccentric. So, when it’s my birthday, I have no problem telling the world.

Because hey, it’s the one day where I have permission to celebrate ME. I mean, I pretty much do it every day, but today I get to broadcast it. But it’s not about wanting attention or gifts (OK maybe cake, I’ll give you that). If you don’t give a damn about my birthday, that is TOTALLY fine!

It’s just about being happy to have survived another year on this rollercoaster of life. It’s about accepting the good with the bad and knowing that everything will be OK, no matter what. It’s about the JOY that is life, and of being me.

Perhaps this sounds egotistical, but I don’t think of it this way. I’m finally at a place in my life where I am truly happy with who I am. And that’s a major accomplishment.

So today, I’ve taken the day off work to celebrate. I’ll be going to Bikram yoga here shortly. Then Nature Boy is coming home so we can hang out, watch Lost (started with Season 1, and we’re up to Season 3), and maybe go shopping. Then it’s the birthday celebration with my family, the ones I love. And CAKE and ice cream. (The cake is sitting on the counter, mocking me, saying, “HA! You can’t eat me until tonight!” Cakes are rude that way sometimes.)

So today, in honor of my birthday, I want YOU to live large and have a fabulous day!

Love to you all,

Suzy

    Happy, happy birthday! You need to post a birthday picture of your tutu, boa and crown! Hope you get the princess treatment today.

      I just went with the tutu, but I put the dogs in their tutus as well. I made them celebrate with me. πŸ˜‰

    Have fun playing hooky from work. I’m impressed you can keep up with Lost. I gave up after the first few episodes. Happy Birthday!

      Thanks, my brother! I had a great time! Lost is a huge mind trip, but I’m hoping everything gets sorted out in the end. If not, I’m gonna be pissed. πŸ˜‰

    Happy Birthday. I seem to remember something about that day. Out came a red face, black hair, and a mad cry and a very sweet little girl. What a joy you are!
