Today is my most important day of this year. I celebrate life. I gratefully honor my past, my experiences, and all the people who accompanied me even for a short moment in my journey. I am infinitely grateful for where they all led me to.

And today I toast for the first day of the rest of my life.

I used to think of this day just like any other day. But on this day, some years ago, I had the privilege to come to this earth. And I came only to lose and find my light, then show the shiny wired path I have traveled to those who need to see it. I came here to live in connection and harmony with nature, with this planet and its fantastic inhabitants, and contribute in my unique way to make our lives just a bit better, to show people around me what authenticity means. I walk this realm as a traveler and a true believer in humans, humanity, good, and love and in their combined power that can heal, light, or patch the muddy souls shaded only by our own dark stories or experiences.

I feel like a witness and a co-creator of a “how-to” recipe of the existence’s flow and its constant rhythm, like watching a dance of deaf ballerinas moved by life energy alone. My presence might wake up the dancers, invite them to observe, to be aware of what transpires inside and out. The ballet scene might change with every moment they honor the invitation.

The birthday wish

Today, I wish that all the moments of my life onward mean something to me. I want to create memories that’ll keep me warm in my soul’s winter. I wish that all my hopes become dreams, all my dreams become wishes, all my wishes become choices, and all my chosen options become behaviors, though part of who I am. And I wish always to remember what I truly value and believe.

I wish to keep in my life the people and relations meant to help both to learn and grow our vibration, even if this is not the easiest way. I wish never to be afraid again to try, do or change things, and I want to support myself equally or more than I help others. I acknowledge now that until my last day in this realm, the only person who will always be with me is me.

I wish to always be as sincere to myself as I am today. To have faith to tell me the most challenging truths and be curious about them no matter how much it hurts. And in the darkest moments of my life, I wish to be my own Aurora, light and guide my path in the most spectacular show of memories that connects me to this place, this planet, these people. I wish then to act, face the fear, start the fire and accelerate full speed whenever possible, knowing and believing that the sun is just around the corner.

All of these will make me believe I live a good life.

Enjoy!
