Great Expectations…by Liimu

Happy birthday to me!

Tuesday was my birthday, and it was fantastic. It was everything I hoped it would be, and do you know why?

Because I did everything I wanted to do.

I didn’t wait for someone to schedule a massage for me, I scheduled one for myself. I worked out at 6 am and then again at 9 am, because I knew it would feel good, and it did. When my husband asked if I would like to go shopping for my birthday, I didn’t say coyly, “No, whatever you get me is fine…” I said, “HELL YEAH!” And we had a blast!

I got messages and cards and e-mails and phone calls every day and I received every single one with love. It took me a minute (ok, forty years) to realize that I am truly the master of my own destiny, but better late than never. And all we’ve got is today, right?

It’s your life – live it up!!
