The sacredness of your birth,
It to be celebrated.
It is sacred.
It is not to be taken for granted.
It is to be honored in reverence,
for the being of wonder that you are.
You were created…
To radiate joy & love.
To receive this joy & love,
that you so freely give to others.
On this day,
It is yours alone.
Spend it thoughtfully, mindfully.
Away from the distractions of daily life.
Take your self to a sacred space,
where you have no expectation of others.
Sit with the blessings that your life brings.
Be in gratitude for the pure essence of living.
It is not about more gifts or
more recognition from others.
It is about seeing yourself.
Being with the sacredness of your being.
Celebrate the gift of life that you are.
Cheers to another year of this journey of triumph!
