In spite of very extreme stormy rain and near flooding conditions in many places, Saturday night a week ago was a fun-filled celebration; the nicest birthday ever. I had anticipated a small group of friends celebrating outside around my pool braving the hot humidity of south Florida mid-summer. Simple Potluck. Don’t be attached to how things are supposed to look! Right? What I got was 25 old and new friends “comfortably” in the living room with picnic tables and decorated umbrella all having a good evening. I think the angels and fairy’s made room for everyone! A wonderful energy and easiness as strangers introduced themselves. Almost the New Orleans big easy energy style. I cannot not mention the food–both homemade vegan and meat lovers lasagna, and large spinach salad provided the main fare–filled in with garlic bread, fruit salad, chicken wings and wine and of course cake! And the best part, was there was nothing to save–all had been eaten! Yes, another year has past, and my, how cliché, but where does the time go?
So Birthdays . . . a time to reflect on the past year and set intentions for the future. Was this how “make a wish” got started with the original declaration to the Universe? No matter what the approaching months bring, our ease with life depends more on our state of mind more than actual events. We all know friends who can turn mole hills into mountains. It is our perception into what is, which lies within our being and the core of who we are. Our serenity, and peace of mind are echoed in our daily life or not. We carry strength, courage and wisdom inside ourselves and it is there for the asking. My anticipation is that my year will be powerful, exciting and fulfilling. What is yours? Whatever you decide and declare you have the power to manifest–so, make it great!
