Birthdays

We turn not older with years, but newer every day.

Birthdays are wonderful and I am always happy to celebrate yours and others as well as mine. They are times of laughter, gratitude, achievement, transition, memories, love, celebration, giving, receiving and so much more.

I don’t remember when, but I started seeing everyday as a “birth” day as I came to believe that everyday I was blessed to awaken to a new day of new opportunities for me to embrace. I no longer needed to wait for 365 days to celebrate my birthday. I now could awaken each day and sing Happy Birthday and know that my gifts were abundant; life, love, gratitude, family, friends, congregants, faith, acceptance, patience, hope, associates, colleagues, pets, nature, business and willingness.

As a Rabbi, Counselor and Coach, I encourage congregants and clients alike to jump with joy everyday as a Birthday. If God (whatever that means) has allowed you to awaken with mostly all the same capacity as yesterday, then shout it out and let the world know how happy you are to celebrate life!

My life is so full of birthday presents every day when I am granted by God, however you define God, and why would I want to wait to celebrate when I could rejoice daily? Yes, I am getting older everyday, but so what? I am renewed in spirit, hope, faith and strength daily which give me a more positive focus than my aging. I rejoice in everyday and allow the little boy in me to scream Happy Birthday to us all!!

My prayer for you today is that you celebrate every day as a “birth” day and rejoice in your good fortune by performing a random act of kindness.
