Marking the Day It All Began
May 22, 2012
Life. This wonderful life. Birthdays mark the anniversary of the Beginning of All Time for each of us. It’s a neat day, a time of reflection of where we have been, where we are and where we are going. It is the starting point for All Things After. We amble forward through our days, sometimes learning, sometimes seeking, sometimes treasuring, sometimes exploring. The flavor of our lives can be measured by the number of times we get back up again after a fall.
And fall we do. If you have lived long enough to learn how to walk, learn how to bounce back from rejection or a risk that ended in failure, then you know of which I speak.
The intensity of living is not for the weak at heart. For some, life gets unbearable, so we look to change something, anything, to find relief. For others it is one big party, a bounce to higher heights. But for everyone, no matter who you are, life is a journey we tread together.
No matter where you are along your personal timeline, you can always decide what today will bring for you. It starts, and ends, within.
Birthday blessings to you all. It is a good day to celebrate indeed.
