Of course, at the end of our journey, we want that to read “a
life lived well”, or “a life well-lived”.
I have spent time over the last several days contemplating
and reflecting on my life thus far. I look at my birthday as a sort of personal
“New Year”. The changing of the calendar year doesn’t mean that much to me,
really. I’m not much into making New Year’s Resolutions. But, my birthday I
take a little more seriously – not in a celebrating, let’s party kind of way.
In fact, I prefer that not much is made of my birthday. Yes, I appreciate the “happy
birthday” wishes, but don’t rely on a party or presents. In many ways, it’s
just another day.
