I was thinking how celebratory and kind most of us are to ourselves on our birthdays. Once a year, you get to allow yourself to do what you want, enjoy doing something you don't ordinarily do, party, and just plain feel good. After all, it's your birthday - a time to dance.
What would happen if we only took one day, a different day from our birthday, like tomorrow, and decided to treat ourselves like it was our birthday ... like we were someone to focus on, love, and just plain feel good. Hey, it's only one day. Just as an experiment. Just because we decided to make a big deal about being alive on an ordinary day. Try it once. But that means that throughout the day, you'd have to stop and delight in the fact that it's your UN-birth-day ... and that you can actually make a decision to re-birth something about yourself on this very day, thus making it a true birth-day. Of course, if you want help with this rebirth, read "Happiness Is A Choice" by Barry Neil Kaufman... a must-read book for anyone who wants happiness as the main experience in their lives.
The idea behind doing this would be to more and more perceive yourself as in charge, as perfectly capable of creating happiness and love any time you want, and ultimately, making your birth-days every day of the year. Imagine exciting yourself about all the things you get that you want - as well as trusting that it's perfect when we don't get what we want, and then deciding to want that. This requires some thought about that idea since we usually think it's a bad thing when we don't get what we want. But if we remain happy when we're not getting what we want, we ARE getting what we REALLY want ... to be happy! For lots more support on how to go for and get what you want, come join us here at The Option Institute for our Empower Yourself Program or Inner Strength Program. We'll celebrate your un-birthday with you.
So HAPPY UN-BIRTHDAY TO YOU! And many more ...
