“For the first time in a long time I can say that I am stoked about this day!
I am excited to say that I have made it 37 years! Holy Shite !! Did I really say that number aloud?!
My birthday has never been a day I really looked forward to. The annoying high-pitched voices of others invading my personal space with their wishes for me and my big day. Expecting me to be just as excited.
A cheeky grin I’d give hoping to satisfy their need to be praised for remembering me on 1 of 365 days.
Maybe it’s because I have five kids.
Yeah, have you seen a child on cake and ice cream. (just have a look)
Sure, sign me up for that dose of reality on my supposive fantastic day. (don’t piss on my head and tell me it’s raining) 😉
Knowing I’d be the one to pick every piece of confetti off the floor. Nah…..I’m good.
I never really understood the importance of making such a fuss. It’s exhausting.
But this year I am excited for myself. I may not jump up and down clicking my heels, but I can honestly say I’m Happy this day birthed me.
The Birthday Almanac has this to say about me:
Inventive, Easygoing, and Unconventional
“Given that January 27 people have a masculine polarity that removes their inhibitions, an inventive element in air, and a ruling planet that encourages unconventional thinking, it is almost inevitable that they should be original thinkers. Their fixed nature makes them stick to their guns, too. They can be unyielding to the point of mutiny, especially when challenged, thanks to the interaction between their quadruplicity, Uranus, and their polarity. Their easygoing airy charm normally prevails however.”
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756); Lewis Carroll (1832); Wilhelm II (1888); Samuel Ting (1936)Brilliant Minds born on January 27
Wow, such brilliant minds share this day with me. So on the first day of starting my 37th year, I choose to be Brilliant. I choose to loosen the grip of gloomy conformity that has been placed upon me. I want to be excited, I want to leap for joy at the many blessings I’ve been given. I want to be okay with seeing the beauty in the unusual. For what is light without the night. I choose the medium in which my voice is raw from anticipation of what might come.
Today on this day I am okay with being me. -Shawnna
