Happy Birthday 2 Me

Today is my 36th Birthday. I am truly grateful to see another year of life. I have dedicated this post to things I have learned about myself as I grow younger (smile):

1- I know what I want and it's everyone else's job to get up to speed with me. LOL
2- It is better in life to be positive rather than complain and be negative.
3- It's a waste of energy being upset or anger at things I can not control. Be happy and move on.
4- I can no longer wear clothes like I am 20. I am 30 something and proud of it.
5- Being old may be a state of mind but when every joint in my body aches in the morning, that's not my mind, that's reality. :)
6- You can pack on weight quicker in your 30's than in your 20's. Why doesn't the same weight come off as quick as you put it on?
7- I don't need people to validate my existence, the breath that God gives me everyday is validation enough.

This is the list I have come up with on the fly. I am sure there are other things that could be added. So Happy Birthday to all my Cancer Babies. We are a crabby bunch but we are the best friend, sister, aunt, mother, niece anyone could ever have.

What about you? Are there things you have learned about yourself as you progress through this journey called life? Comments are welcome.

Happy Happy Birthay!

Number 3 of your life lessons is my true! It takes so much energy to be in a tiff.

@AM - I had to learn that lesson the hard way. Glad I did though.
