I love everything about birthdays: the celebration, the gifts, the making and reliving of memories. I love special things and everything about a birthday is special.
I'm also an old pro at milking my birthday. I like to spread it out as much as possible and throw around the phrase "birthday wish" as a persuasive argument. Because who says no to a birthday wish?
And today just happens to be my birthday, so here's my birthday wish from you:
What I really want on my birthday is for you to do one kind thing for yourself today. I'm talking real, actual kindness. The type of thing that, were someone else to do it for you, would leave you touched or floored. The sort of thing that requires paying attention, thoughtfulness, and genuine care.
And then tell me what it was.
Happy Birthday to me.
