It's My Birthday!

Yes, yes...I'm 31 years experience with life now. Therefore, I'm a grown woman *smile*
I must say my actual birthday was laid back, very laid back. After a job interview that I had, I just came home and plopped on the couch to catch some zzz's. This year I didn't expect anyone to really call me except for my sis. She sang a sweet soulful happy birthday to me. Mother-in-law called and did the same, now I was surprised. A good friend from church called me too and wished me a happy one. I thought that was sweet. This year I am not calling around reminding people that it's my birthday. Shoot, if I've known you for 3 years now, you either know or you don't. So aside from family, one person called, lol. That's better then none. Oops, baby daddy called and wished me a happy one, and he sent lots of roses to my house. It was really sweet, but I wish he didn't do that.
However my best friend took me out on Saturday for my birthday. We went to the King of Prussia mall in PA. We had a ball. She surprised me with a "make -up session" at Sephora. When we walked in and it looked as if we were in the movies. All the make-up artist moving around, doing faces, music pumping, lip glosses, eye shadows, perfumes, and all the glamour! It was very fast pace environment. My friend wanted me to relax and get professionally made over by one of the artist. It was funny because she wanted one of the men with sweetness in his tank to do my make-up. People, I'm very picky when it comes to my personal things. Honestly, I preferred a woman to do my face and that's what we got. She was GOOD!!! I wanted the smoky eye look/effect and boy did she give me what I wanted. Because it was my birthday, I received a free gift from Sephora and my buddy brought me the smokey eye shadow make-up kit from there as well for me. That was sooo sweet. Made me feel special. She took pictures so I'm waiting for her to send them to me. We were going to eat at the Cheesecake Factory, but it was a 2 hour wait. NOT! So we went to California Kicthen Pizza. I didn't want pizza, so I ordered the Thai curry noodles with chicken. Spicy and full of flavor.
What did I learn this go round? (I'm sighing), I wished I would have learned to enjoy life years ago. People, this life that they say, "LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE NOW" well, you ARE living your best life now. This is it. Stop waiting for something "Big" to happen, just live it up in the place where you are now. Stop waiting for the promotion, car, job, graduation, baby, getting married, losing weight, gaining weight, wedding, shopping spree, etc... You and only you can make your life happy, it's a choice, an everyday choice. I find humor in everything. If not, then I'll be stressed like crazy. Ride the waves of life with enjoyment!
