Actually, we can simply enjoy our lives.
Life is way too short to worry about and it can be over much too soon.
Once a year we are reminded of exactly this - on our birthday.
With fright, we realize that another year is over and we wonder “I really lived this year?” “Did I enjoy every day with pleasure?”
But a lot worse is; we're one year older, the skin is wrinkled, the hair is grey and that's it what our Birthdays dominates - the physical decay and the panic of aging.
While children are excited about this day with pure joy, it terrified the adults.
But in my eyes, all that is incidental, because our birthday may be for us always be something wonderful!
It is the day we were born. It's the day we have begun our lives here and this day may be celebrated no matter how old you get.
Birthdays are especially important for the people who only make it on this one day to remember how wonderful it is to be in the world.
We can celebrate and enjoy every day of our lives.
Admittedly it sounds very exuberant, but isn´t it so?
We are here.
We live, we love and we laugh.
If we're lucky, then we can do that for a while. We can treat each day as unique and above all we can enjoy every day.
Who knows, maybe I'll see it differently in 20 years’ time, but I do not think so.
Especially on our birthday we can stop and review the past year. But above all we can leave it behind, see into the distance and we can look happily forward to the coming year.
The most beautiful gift we have is that we´re alive and that we have every day the chance to make it the most beautiful day of our lives.
We are mover and shakers, but unfortunately the most of us forget about that.
Birthdays are a good moment to remember that...
