Birthday Reflection

balloons.jpgGrowing older is tough to take, but it has been the most joyful experience of my life.  Granted, the degenerative nature of my illness counts against me.  But every year I move up the age-scale, I detach more from with the mechanisms consumerist society uses to pitch us against each other to create a demand for products and services.

To put it simply, every year, I am happier and more content in my life.  I think more of others, and I take more gentle care of myself.

Birthdays are blessings because they remind me of how far I’ve come each year, and I can’t wait for mine this weekend.

  1. I’ve found that as I get older I care less about what the world expects of me and more about doing what I want to do for me.

    1. Yeah totally… it’s where happiness lies!!
