Everyone loves to see
the No Waiting sign when we are trying to access someplace. Who wants to wait when we are ready to roll?
If we have to wait, then we can’t move forward on our wonderful plans! If someone else needs to do something so we can move along, then we aren’t the captains of our ship…merely passengers waiting for the “Go Ahead – All is Clear” sign.
I got a wonderful surprise when I decided to compile a list for my year-long celebration of my birthday! Instead of waiting to see what the day would bring…who would remember my birthday…how would they remember it… Instead of all of that waiting, I decided who would celebrate it – ME!
I celebrated it by declaring a year long theme and planning how to implement it. (See my last blog post entitled “Happy Birthday to Me!”)
My list included what I had learned during the past year so that became a part of my celebration, too. And I started to implement it in stages even days before my birthday.
This turned out to be a wonderful reminder of many things I had been thinking about doing but had not quite gotten to. Now I had some extra motivation to move them into my day. And each time I did something on the list, I got a super good feeling about myself.
NOW who’s giving the presents!!!
It’s a fabulous birthday party with myself (in addition to the other celebrations by family and friends). And there was No Waiting to see what would bring me joy.
I filled the joy balloon myself and my list is giving me a never ending supply of soul-helium to keep those balloons afloat.
No waiting for happiness. Just grab it and run…This is truly the gift that keeps on giving!
p.s. In case you missed my last blog, here are my year-long birthday theme and list so far:
