These are the Days of Our Lives

“Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday, dear _______________ (you fill in the blank)! Happy birthday to you!”

This is a familiar song sung in many languages by many families since the late 1800’s, when it was written by two sisters. It has become a tradition to celebrate another successful 365-day rotation around the sun in a person’s life. 365 days, wow!  

When we break our years down into days, it appears to give a different concept – days. They come and they go so quickly at times. Then they can drag on forever, leaving us feeling like we are getting nowhere fast.  

Each day that has been gifted to you serves a purpose, yes, “gifted.” We are blessed by our Creator to enter each one of them. However, what do we do with them? Do we wish them away? Do we regret them? Do we allow ourselves to be robbed of their joy? That was never the intent for the gift.  

I love this quote by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross: “It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth – and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up – that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.”

Living each day and being in the moment is liberating. When we make that resolve, we will see everything in a different light. We will look for the good in each situation. We will treasure the small things while working towards the greater. We will take nothing for granted and have little to no regrets. We will be kinder and more generous. We will love and not hate. And the ideas could go on and on.  

Take the challenge to find ways to live your days with purpose. Life will become less difficult and more enjoyable. The challenges will always be there and, remember, so will the joy. It will be present to greet you as you unwrap each morning.  

Here’s to enjoying this day. Let’s keep growing and going. It’s a good time to be you!

Peace and Joy,
