Happy Birthday to Me
Key lime pie and a candle for my birthday. This birthday I'm giving myself a gift: me. Compassionate, ziggity boom, serene, funny, sad, loving me. This year I'll celebrate being human with all the flaws, scuffs, hanging threads, stumbling gait, bizarre behaviors being human is. I will forgive myself for sins imagined and committed, and apply the same to others. I'll use my third eye when my eyesight is blurred, and remember that the aches and pains of getting older are a reminder that I'm still here to appreciate the now with gratitude.
