Today Is My Day, Cymplified!

Today is my day.

today is my day

Today, I will look in the mirror and smile. I will smile at my pores, my wrinkles, my lines – my flaws!

I will also cry when I feel like it.

Today, I will dance when I hear upbeat music come on. I will enjoy every wiggle and every waggle of my body.

I will also sit still and simply stare into space.

Today, I will laugh at even the silly and corny things. I will relish the sound of heartfelt laughter.

I will also cry when I feel like it.

Today, I will write down or draw my thoughts on paper. I will release the demand for the output to look perfect.

I will also sit still and simply stare into space.

Today, I will do what I feel like doing because it’s my birthday.

And tomorrow, I will put on my masks again.

 


Two days ago, after I had my breakfast, I took out my planner and penned these words.

At 35, I am still figuring out my life. The constant question I ask myself is, “what’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner?” I am still figuring out how to plan our meals! I am still figuring out what my clothing and watercolor styles are. I am still figuring out how to minimize clutter.

Mostly, I am struggling to accept my flaws, to be rooted in joy and to create without holding myself back.

Today…

I tried to feel happier, I did!

I smiled at my reflection, I did!

I laughed with my children, I did!

I wrote and I drew, I did!

I also cried, I did!

I’m glad I had dinner with my family on my day. I received gifts and a birthday call. I received messages of birthday wishes. Those lifted my spirits and I felt appreciated. That’s my cue to appreciate others as well.

 

I wish to live the rest of my life filled with love. That means, a life filled with God, because God is love.  🙂

Oh, and here’s the outtake of the photo above. This is what happened when I was trying to get an artsy shot, with children hanging around.  😆

How about you? What’s your birthday wish?
