Tomorrow is my birthday. It’s the one I’ve been waiting for. I turn 40. And I’m very excited & optimistic. So much has happened over the last 4 decades. So much that has pushed & pulled me in various directions. But I feel that I’ve reached a turning point. Where I’m no longer tethered to a past — I’m free to be in the present. This newfound presence feels liberating. I feel childlike. Free to do as I please, and free to be me fully. I’m not sure what sparked this. But I am happy that the flame has been lit.
January 12th is my birthdate. It makes me a Capricorn. Below is a little information about Capricorns I found on Josephine Walls website.
Capricorn: December 22—January 19
Capricorn’s form of half goat, half fish derives from ancient Babylonian mythology, in which Ea, the Sea-Goat and Lord of Wisdom, emerges from his home in the sea to bring civilization and knowledge to mankind. In the zodiac, the placement of the constellation represents high achievement. Steady, purposeful, and long-sighted, Capricorns have a plan for the future and set their sights high. They seek security and certainty, and insist that rules be followed. But don’t let that fool you into thinking Capricorns are all work and no play: they have a lively wit, a dry sense of humor, and that rare combination, creativity coupled with organization.
And not wanting to toot my own horn… (No pun intended.) There are negative traits to Capricorns. I think the description above was trying to be sweet. And since it’s for my birthday — I’ll take it!
I am wishing everyone a fresh start and liberation from their past. Starting tomorrow! I know I am being silly, and birthdays (or born days) are just a concept, along with all the other concepts. But they are fun! And who doesn’t like the feeling of childlike wonder & excitement for what is here or what is to come? It’s fun to play & dream, it’s fun to rejoice & celebrate. It’s a reminder that each day can be special, and each & every one of us deserves to feel special. Please remember that. YOU ARE SPECIAL. And each day is a special gift for you. Celebrate it! :)
