June 3rd, 1976, Happy Birthday and the meaning of it all

Today is my 34th birthday. I feel this day, in an inspiring way today more than ever. What does it mean to ponder your day of birth? To me, it means being extremely nice to yourself and also evaluating some goals and ideas. I ask myself who am I, where am I, and do I like what I have become? I check in. Today, I am very happy about where I am, who I am, and where I am going. I am thankful to be alive but more importantly feel alive. Of course, a celebration is always fun!

I am paying my mother respect on this day even more than Mother's Day as she delivered me and in that delivery I almost did not make it. The cord was around my neck and luckily the doctors were quick to deliver me but my mom went through some serious labor. I can only imagine that day, your day of birth, which seems more fulfilling for me right now to say instead of birthday. Only because it is so important to make good use of this gift of life each and everyday.

So, a shout out to all you Geminis and birthday goers today and a big soulful hug to my mother for her undying love and affection, and of course to my father. It takes two, right? But, dad you will have your day soon, Father's Day is around the corner! lol xxoo

This is a picture of me when I turned five. I have always loved this Polaroid with the colorful gifts and my smirk little smile. And, a very beat up picture of my mother and I when I was about 3. I made quite a few paintings and drawings from this picture so it sadly ended up covered in oil paint and bent, but I still love it. I think I love it more that it is bent and weathered.
