Happy Birthday to Me!

I arrived.

At my big 6-0.


Better than intact.

The feeling of exhilaration washes over me. Energizes my being. Good things are in store.

It is an auspicious birthday. The Eve of Chinese New Year. The year of, well, me!

The 'me' in the sense that I have an exciting agenda that is unfolding. Promising to say the least.

And, I feel good. Invigorated. At peace. Joyful.

My dolphin energy abounds.

I am ready for this, my seventh decade!

Finally comfortable with the woman I have become. My inner strengths. My resilience. My playfulness. My vitality.

Gracefully I smile as I face forward and stroll into the mellow sunshine of my future.



  1. Oh--this really is big--to have your 'Chinese Century'--not just the animal, but the element, too, fall right at your birthday! That is really cool! Congrats! I hope it was a great birthday!

  2. happy birthday!!!! :) :) :)

  3. A happy belated Birthday!

    Strangely, I was brought back to your blog as a lost vagabond comment that you sent last year suddenly appeared on my site today. How strange Blogger can be sometimes!

    You and I both hit 6-0 (it seems so weird to say sixty) this year--I a few days before you on 1/30.

    In any case this seems like a good time to let you know about this year's Blogging from A to Z April Challenge--just in case you hadn't heard about it yet.

    Check the link below for details.
