It’s Aries Season! It’s My Birthday Week!
When I was a little girl I would make a birthday list and I absolutely expected to get the gifts from my list. When I blew out my candles and made a birthday wish I expected it to come true.
As I got older, I started focusing on practicality and sensibility. I started dreaming smaller and playing not to lose instead of playing to win. I no longer expected all my dreams to come true or expected to win at all there is to life!
I am not really into astrology, but every now and again it’s fun to take a peek. Here is what zodiac.com had to say about Aries: “The first sign of the Zodiac, Aries are the trailblazers. Passionate and independent, Aries will never do something just because everyone else is doing it—a Ram needs to be 100 percent committed to the task at hand. Competitive to the max, the best way to motivate an Aries is to turn something into a contest. Aries will put everything they have (and then some) into winning. Loyal, smart, and impulsive, they always have multiple projects on their mind, and won’t be satisfied until their work, social life, and personal lives line up exactly with the dream life they’ve envisioned. Those who are drawn to magnetic Aries may have trouble keeping up—but if they can, they’ll have a friend for life.”
Today I declare that it’s my time to dream big, live boldly, and be authentically me.
Everything attached to me wins!
Oh, and birthday vacation mode is fully activated!
