I woke up this morning and it was my birthday. YAY!! A fun day to celebrate all that life has offered me and all that it will offer in the future! As I lay in bed and stretched my arms and snuggled my kitties, reality hit. So I jumped up and worked out and hustled through my morning routine and got to work. And here I am sitting at my desk, answering phones, dealing with problems, and wishing it was later so I can celebrate.
And this is why people go away for their special birthdays! If I were on a cruise right now, I might still be snuggling in bed and yawning and stretching my arms. I could be sitting by a pool and sipping something alcoholic that might send me in to sugar shock. I might be watching a show, or zip lining through the air, or snorkling with sting rays, or swimming with dolphins…. I’m sorry… I got lost in my fantasies and digressed!
When you are planning the special day for yourself or a loved one, consider being somewhere other than home. A birthday is a day to be stress and worry free and just enjoy life. A perk is that if you are planning it for someone else, you get to be stress and worry
free on your day AND their day!
