Today is a day for celebration! It is my 35th birthday and I am celebrating all of the positive and wonderful attributes that makes me special. I am smiling as I look in the mirror and admire my new kinky twist hair style. I am happy to hear the silly laughter and goofy jokes of my sons. I am loving the new black pants and shirt with the gold buttons down the middle. I am happy that I have the motivation, drive and determination to fulfill my goals and live out my dreams. Wheeeeew, thirty-five feels awesome and all I can do is give thanks. Today, I also celebrate you. Each and every one of you are special to me and bring me joy. I can't say that I know you all by name or that we've ever met face-to-face, but I feel closely connected to you through our unspoken girl power bond that allows us to be able to understand each other though we may be miles apart with several years between us. Speaking with you, listening to your secrets, sharing in your successes and being strength for your struggles empowers me and gives me purpose. Because of you, I have someone to serve and someone to make me better. And I give thanks. I love to inspire and motivate you, encourage and guide you and help you become the best YOU. I celebrate all that I am today because many women took the time to sow goodness into my life and that's what I want to do with you. Can you join me in my celebration today? Find one thing to celebrate and type in the comments section below: Today I celebrate myself because ______________. It doesn't have to be a BIG thing or something that others have said about you. It can be something simple or something personal or something you have never shared. Let's celebrate together and let the world know about the AWESOMENESS we possess inside. So, cheers to us and cheers to everything good. I'm going to turn up and do my happy dance all day long while reading your comments. Here, I'll go first. Today I celebrate myself because: I have my health, my mind, my family, my purpose, my God and yes, I celebrate YOU. Pass the mic. Your turn.
