What’s a Birthday?

Another trip around the sun according to Jimmy Buffett. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaKqwvGa6Bw

Another year of age applied to the body that houses the spirit. Thank goodness spirit doesn’t age like the body. Some people remain forever young no matter how old their bodies get.


It’s not just people that have birthdays. Plants and animals also have their trip around the sun each year until their bodies run out of gas. Even some insects can live for a few trips around the sun if the conditions are right, although I could do without the cockroaches, some of which can live over a year. https://www.terminix.com/blog/bug-facts/how-long-do-bugs-live/#:~:text=How%20Long%20Do%20Bugs%20Live%3F%201%20Fire%20Ants,7%20Mosquitoes%20...%208%20Spiders%20...%20More%20items


Birthdays are the perfect time to get together with family and friends, and for a day, you are the main attraction. And who doesn’t like to be the main attraction right?


Birthdays are a time to reflect on the year that has passed and the accomplishments achieved or not achieved. Either way, birthdays remind you, you did the best you could have done. While birthdays also give you the chance to improve on things you want to make better of, or you can feel comfortable with where you are and just hang tight.


Birthdays also start the beginning to a new year filled with unknowns. How and when the unknown happenings occur, none of us know. When we do our best each day we can get through each day. When we take each day as it comes, that helps us not to fear those unknowns or anticipate them.


Many of us have family and friends that help us during our trip around the sun, and sometimes we lose a beloved pet, friend or family member during our trip. Again we do the best we can when those difficult times occur with the help of our support systems. Without them how could we keep our chins up and keep plowing away at the daily grind?


When we share our birthdays with the people we love, they remind of us of who we truly are and how we got to the places we are. Without the help of our family, friends, and the special interests that keep us going such as healthy habits, who would we truly be without their never ending influence and support?


So on this birthday I want to thank all my family and friends for their support, patience, understanding and love. Without those impeccable qualities influencing my life I couldn’t walk with the integrity I do my best to muster each day.


And I thank all of you who read my blog, and I want to wish everyone a Happy Birthday, even if it’s not your birthday, have fun any way.



Carpe Diem birthday celebrators!!!
