The Birthday Eve

Similar to Christmas Eve, the Birthday Eve has a sense of anticipation but also a sense of reflection. 

Each year I reflect on the year past and assess my life and goals for the coming year.
Life is zipping by at breakneck speed and I realise how important it is not to waste it. In a blink of an eye I will wake up and be seventy, or if I’m lucky eighty or ninety and I will be looking backwards. So for when I’m looking backwards I hope I can read the memories I’ve documented over the past few years and continue to write. 
It’s important to have a purpose but it’s important to be happy.

And so as another year passes and I look for purpose and meaning, the most important thing is to celebrate being alive and healthy. 

I for one will raise a glass to that!
