Happy Birthday To Me

Today, I am 38 years old and I've never felt better.  38 is going to be a great year for me, I can just feel it.  As I get older, birthdays become less and less about celebrations which involve gifts and cake and parties.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy celebrating, but nowadays, I view my birthday as an opportunity to appreciate the former year, anticipate the year to come and remember my goals and dreams for my life.  

This last Christmas, I bought the girls a poster for their room.  They didn't really care much about it at the time, which I knew would be the case, but when I saw this poster in the store, I knew I had to get it for them.  The poster is written in ABC order and encourages being daring.  I am inspired by the words on this poster and hope that one day, the girls will be as well.

Dare to:

Ask for what you want
Believe in your dreams
Count your blessings
Do the right thing
Enjoy the moment
Fail, and dare to succeed
Give more than you receive
Have no regrets
Inspire kindness
Join in more
Kiss and make up
Love all you can
Make a difference
Never settle for less
Overcome adversity
Practice moderation
Question authority
Reinvent yourself
Shoot for the moon
Take personal responsibility
Understand more, judge less
Veto hate and negativity
Walk your talk
eXercise body and mind
Yodel more, yawn less
be Zany

It's a great day for a birthday.  A great day to remember all the things that inspire me to be a better person.  A great day to DARE.  


  1. Happy birthday! It's funny how birthdays change as you get older, and I'm really noticing that more and more as I get to my "late" thirties. Love the poster :)
