Being a healthy, happy adult means having good habits, but not all of them are easy to maintain. One that can be particularly hard to stick to is your birthday. When you’re an adult and celebrating it on your terms, it’s easy to forget that some people don’t have the opportunity to do so. When your birthday gets in the way of other essential life events, it can feel like a burden. It’s something you can take control of by making sure that you’re doing things that matter when you’re out of the house.
My birthday got in the way of my regular routine, so I never expected anything out of the ordinary. I got up, checked my email, and logged on to Facebook. While I was scanning through the birthday wishes, several realizations hit me. I don’t think I had that many friends in high school, but I had over 121 on Facebook. I wasn’t surprised by the sparse email, but I was surprised by the number of birthday wishes I received.

Birthday Wishes from New Friends
I heard about this guy for a while but finally met him in Vegas a few weeks back.
Even when you are an old fart, you make great new friends like Mike. (Happy Birthday to you as well.)
Injury Free Birthday!
Very cute, Jacy!
I will make it a light day when I hit the gym today.
Helping with Your Words
I take my presentations very seriously, and I thoroughly freaked out my Mastermind Group when I was in San Diego a few weeks ago. My presentation lasted 25 minutes, and I spent five hours preparing for it. You learn a lot when you put it together, visualize it, and make it a reality when you speak. You touch people when you speak, and I’m grateful to have helped you, Benjamin. In the last few months, I’ve realized that writing has the same effect as speaking, and I need to keep learning, practicing, and reporting.
It is always lovely to get warm wishes from family and friends from the old country.
I am sure there will be more to add to this post as the day goes by.
Thank you for thinking of me and sharing your love.
