To live happily is an inward power of the soul. -Aristotle

(Things that make me happy right now...)

(Precious drop earrings from F21)

October is my birthday month. I claim the whole month as a celebration of myself.
I highly recommend it for your next birthday! Lots of special little treats sprinkled here and there.
Pampering myself and lapping up the luxuries of everyday happiness. It's my mantra right now. Happiness.
I don't know why, but we gals get depressed around our b-days...anybody agree? I remember even crying
one year, cuz it's my party and I'll cry if I want to! Our trip to the pyramids got postponed due to
scheduling conflicts. Did I cry? Nope, I'm just so happy that the Director and I even have
busy schedules doing the work that we love! My glamorous caftans and jeweled sandals will
have to wait to make their appearances until next month.
Back to happiness. I was saying, we get sad around our b-days and
I'm just not getting on that boat anymore.
What's to be sad about? I'm one year older? mmkay...and?
Only I have the keys to my feelings and I choose to
be happy about life, who I am becoming each day,
and the path my faith leads me to. (and p.s. also how
fab I look ;)
So you see, every post this month I will prelude
 with a happiness quote. I hope, to remind us all
to choose happiness. xoxo -Taj

I have dreaded celebrating my birthday this year (I turned the big 3-O this year), but when the day finally came, I realized how silly I was for having those sorts of feelings. I should be grateful I have reached this age, and so far, life is great.

Anyway, advanced happy birthday!
