In Honor of Birthdays–Especially Yours!

 In Honor of Birthdays  Especially Yours!

 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. 
–Emily Dickinson

 It takes a long time to grow young.
–Pablo Picasso

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
–Nhat Hanh

Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
–Unknown

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. 
–M.A. Radmacher

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were? 
–Satchel Paige

The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.  
–Madeleine L’Engle

Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty—they merely move it from their faces into their hearts. 
–Martin Buxbaum

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.
--Ashley Smith

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.” 
–Erma Bombeck

Celebrate the gift of your birthday! And if someone special you know is having a birthday, share a little inspiration with them with a beautiful BlueMountain.com ecard from our birthday, just because or friendship selections.

Don’t Forget Friendship Day This Weekend!

Dont Forget Friendship Day This Weekend!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friends are some of the most important people in our lives. They are always there for us, whether we need a good laugh, cry, or anything in between. These relationships should be cherished and celebrated – especially this weekend because Sunday, August 5 is Friendship Day!

Spend the day with good friends on a fun adventure, or maybe just stay in and reminisce about all the memories you’ve made together over the years. Don’t live near your closest friends? Plan a good hour or two to catch up on the phone.

Sending a friendship eCard is a sweet gesture that is sure to make your friends smile, or post a digital postcard on facebook to let everyone know that it’s Friendship Day. Remember, every friend deserves a little reminder of how special they are!

Holiday: Happy Friendship Day!

Holiday: Happy Friendship Day!The Lens of Friends

The word “friend” is probably laden with as many nuances of meaning as the word “love.”  After all, we have a wide variety of people in our lives that we might by some definition call friends, and we have a host of people to whom we attach some semblance of love.

Some people are friends by virtue of proximity, meaning you see them at exercise class every week or you see them sitting in the same pew at church on Sunday’s, you exchange a few pleasantries, learn each other’s names, and are in some measure, friends.

Some people are the lifelong buddies of days gone by.  They know everything about you, or at least who you once were. Sometimes they remember things you had long ago forgotten, and actually wish they would forget too, when their old information about you no longer fits who you are today.  Still, these are the people who are gold, the ones carved with lasting memories, the ones who remain in your heart forever and no time or distance can break the bond.

Then, there are the current friends, the “real” friends, the ones who lift your spirits when life turns upside down, or who catch you off center and make you laugh in spite of yourself.  These are the inner circle friends, the ones who have permission to enter the sacred spaces of your heart and who safely and lovingly remind you of all that is good.  These are the friends as Albert Schweitzer once said who are near when a light goes out.  He said, “Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.  Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.”

No matter what lens you use to see the friends who surround you, they are all important.  They all remind you that every experience in life is more beautiful when it is shared with a friend, with someone we love.   Give a warm shout to your friends today and thank them for being such a wonderful part of your life.

Happy Friendship Day!
