Happy Birthday to Merry ME!

To day is my birthday and I gotta say I'm feeling quite celebrated. Who cares if I'm 57, not 7, my adult and inner child personas are soaking up the love and celebrating being special today. Sweetie woke me up by singing the birthday song which on any other day might have caused me to grumble. But who can't smile when they know the birthday song is being sung in her honor?

I've opened cards and presents. There is confetti all over the floor and the smell of lavender in the air. My sister has become the master packer. You never know what's going to come flying out of the envelope when you rip it open. It makes me want to have a bunch of lavender plants just to use as packing material. Mmmmmmm!

I have a few things I have to do so I'll finish up the story of my birthday adventures tomorrow. For today, and everyday, I hope you take the time to celebrate who you are and who you are yet to be. Take stock of your good points, change the things you consider changeable and throw all the negatives into the trash can. Life is good. But it's too short for negative energy to rule the roost. When you've worked yourself into a big ol' bundle of love pass it on. Make someone else's day by celebrating them.

Here's a birthday thought for all of us! Enjoy.

"Everything you take for granted is a blessing.
Everything you fear is a friend in disguise.
Everything you want is a part of you.
Everything you hate you hate about yourself.
Everything you own does not define you.
Everything you feel is the only Truth there is to know.
Everything you wish for is already on its way to you.
Everything you think creates your life.
Everything you seek for you will find.
Everything you resist will stick around.
Everything you let go of stays if it's supposed to.
Everything you need is right where you are.
Every time you bless another your bless yourself.
Every time you blame another you lose your power.
Every time you think you can, you can.
Every time you fall you must get up and try again.
Every time you cry you're one tear closer to joy.
Everytime you ask for forgiveness, all you have to do is forgive yourself.
Everyone you see is your reflection.
Everyone you know mirrors you.
Everyone wants to be happy.
Everyone wants to live in joy.
Everyone seeks a higher purpose.
Everyone breathes the same breath.
Everyone needs love to survive.
Everyone has a purpose to fulfill.
Everyone's the same as everyone else.
We just get caught up in labels, names, skin color and religion.
Everyone's the same as everyone else.
No one wants to feel the pain.
Everyone's the same as everyone else.
Everyone is dying for love to remain."

Sending love all around,
Merry Me
