It occurred to me that I have a "double whammy" of new beginnings at the start of the new year, since my birthday is just a few days after New Years.
I used to focus on the fact that everyone either missed my birthday completely (it was always over Xmas break), or that people would give me a "combo" present for Xmas/Birthday.
I realized that in my past, I depended far too much on others being responsible for my happiness.
This is my last year of being in my '20's', and I intend to make the most of it.
I am responsible for my happiness, and for satisfying my own desires.
Any kindness that I receive from others is a beautiful, wonderful, supplemental bonus.
I am filled with warmth and light that comes from within me
It is my hope that we can all have the intention to depend on ourselves for our own happiness.
