Do you still make a wish and blow out the candles on your birthday cake?
What? You don't celebrate your birthday with a cake?
What's that again? You don't even CELEBRATE your birthday?
How does that happen? I don't know but it happens with a lot of people from what I've seen.
"Cake? Candles? Wishes? Bah-Humbug!" (Does 'Bah-Humbug' still apply even though it's not the Christmas season?)
Friend, even though I'm sharing information about the new travel business that my wife and I have started, THIS IS ALSO ABOUT LIVING AND CELEBRATING LIFE!
We talked about it yesterday so, yeah, if you haven't read that article yet, you DO need to go back and do that...as well as listen to the podcast (links to both iTunes and RSS feed at the bottom).
Too many people have just given up on enjoying life and seeing their dreams become a reality. You know it and I know it. Hopefully that does not describe you but, hey, let's get real here - even people like "us" have allowed some things to just pass us by, right?
I'm too old, I'm too young, I don't have enough money, I don't have enough time.
Excuses that will lead you down a road of regret and disappointment. You don't believe me? Friend, if you have children, take a good long look at them and ask yourself where the time has gone.
ESPECIALLY if they are already "out of the house" but even if they are still at home with you and growing every day right before your very eyes.
The longer you wait to get back to enjoying your life and making those memories the sooner the time will come that you will wish that you had.
That's just the way it works.
Take the time to check out our page on Facebook (link at the bottom) and consider how you - yes YOU - can actually afford to make some of those life-long memories NOW instead of living a life void of those memories.
Hey, even if you don't do that, WAKE UP and realize that time is passing us all by and it is up to each and every one of us to make the most of it.
Even if it's NOT your birthday, don't wait for your next one to make a cake or even buy a cake and put at LEAST one candle on top of it and make a wish.
WHY NOT? I can just about promise that you'll smile and that you'll be glad that you did.
And if someone asks you for the occasion? Tell them that the occasion is LIFE!
Enjoy every moment, friend, enjoy every moment. And, as you do so, always be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
