Have another birthday coming? Then celebrate it with joy! You may not always see the glow of your birthday cake, candle by candle, as a good thing. You may wonder where the years have gone or why they seem to melt one into another. The fact is that every birthday you have becomes a wonderful opportunity to take a personal inventory and remind yourself of all that you’ve accomplished and all the dreams that still lie ahead that can be realized! You’ve got a lot of fire in you creating a greater flame than all your candles added together. Need a few fabulous birthday thoughts for inspiration? Here are some of our favorites:
We turn older with years, but newer every day.
It takes a long time to grow young.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?
The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.
Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty—they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.
Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me.”
