A Great Wayto Look at Birthdays

Today’s my birthday!

“Some say age ain’t nothing but a number. We say it’s so much more — that each year brings distinct pleasures and grueling challenges, unique thrills and soul-shaking epiphanies, aDiane with Birthday cakend a fresh chance, always, to wrest more joy from your life.”

Isn’t this a positive — and realistic — ¬†way to look at a new year – instead of dreading being another year older?
