Ever feel like just NOT celebrating your birthday?
It is unusual for me, I love a good party ;)
But this year feels a little... eh.
"49 what's to celebrate there?
Save it up for next year and do something BIG".
Then I was reminded that it is so important to celebrate ourselves.
To recognize and give space to life lived.
And a celebration can look many ways.
It can simply be to witness and mark
the rites of passage the year has presented.
To be grateful for the people and experiences
of this years journey around the sun.
To do things that honor your being,
even small things you gift yourself.
And most of all not to take for yourself for granted.
Be kind to yourself.
With so much love, the door is open.
