Happy Birthday… to Me

March 25, 2012

Wow, I guess a blog offers me the platform to be a bit self-indulgent, wishing myself a happy birthday to whoever stops by. Kinda cool. :) In all seriousness — well happy, joyous seriousness! — this birthday post is a thank you to all of you who commented and read my birthday dilemma Vent Sesh post on Wednesday. I apologize that I haven’t had the chance to reply individually (I will!) however your posts made me realize that while I am stuck with some health issues, I need to rock this thing!

What happened to me, happened, and while crappy as it was, it has subsequently afforded me some of my biggest gifts: time with my family, my own business (and my own schedule!), this blog, meeting all of you, yada yada, I could go on forever. Had I not had that awful situation, who knows how long it would have taken me to fully create my own destiny. Take Jodi’s favorite words as wisdom: a year from now, you will wish you had started today. Have you given yourself a push??

For my birthday: taking my daughter to music class, followed by brunch (can I get the birthday pancake pictured above, please?! YUM!), then going to see Hunger Games (SO excited), with dinner with the amazing husband at III Forks. Pretty damn perfect for a girl who just two years ago was (excuse my language) scared shitless I’d never walk or write my name never again.

    Happy belated birthday, Alyson! Hope it was all you hoped it would be! I’m really sorry about what happened two years ago (I read the vent sesh post but didn’t get around to commenting) but I’m really glad that you’re able to overcome that and be happy on your birthday, even if it is filled with negative memories. You are such a strong woman! :)

    And those birthday pancakes… look SO GOOD.
