Originally I was going to post about how I'm another year older and feeling crummy. How last night I had dinner way too late, and munched on snacks too late, and likely gained back a pound from just being goofy. About how this week was going to be hard and I was truly dreading getting through it - because my goals might suffer.
Then I woke up with my cat wrapped around my hand under the covers, and the wife smiled at me, and wished me happy birthday with a kiss. Then I checked my e-mail and found FOUR e-cards from my good friend Kate (overkill doesn't apply on your birthday) with some wonderful sentiment.
Then I realized - just how lucky I am. And how wonderful 29 will be.
This is a year of transformation for me. When I reach 30 I will not be the same person I am today. I'll be thinner, healthier, happier, have more energy, have stopped biting my fingernails (ewwwww!), and be well on my way to making the dreams of others come true.
Sure I didn't hang with Cruella yesterday - but that's why God invented TODAY.
And so - rather than be glum here on my birthday - I'm going to embrace it. I'm going to enjoy it. I'm going to savour every blessed second of it (especially the angelfood/strawberry cake the wife is making for me)!
Yes, my friends - today is my Birthday. And my RE-Birth day.
Take a good look. This guy is only getting better from here!
