How do you feel when your birthday rolls around? Good, bad, indifferent? Hopefully, it does keeping rolling around!


Since my August birthday rolls around again next week, I decided to share what my daughter Stacy Weber wrote on her birthday. She’s a gifted Law of Attraction Empowerment Coach.

She helps people change the quality of their lives through seminars and virtual coaching. Stacy wrote:

How do you celebrate your birthday?

Do you celebrate another year living, loving, growing, and expanding? ……Excited about your life!

Or do you wish it was not your birthday because you’re older, have more wrinkles, or not where you want to be in life?

I ask because it was my birthday a few days ago……

Leading up to it I was thinking about how I wanted to spend my next year! I decided I wanted it to be fun, exciting, full of happiness….an amazing year. A few years ago, I learned that I can create the life I want, be happy and love my life!

It was funny…I woke up on my birthday thinking about all the fun, happy amazing times I have already had in my life! I felt so grateful as I went through so many experiences…even though there were some bad times, they created new beginnings! When you look for the good, you find it! When you’re grateful for what you already have, you receive more of it!

My birthday was amazing because I expected it to be just like so many moments I had already been though. Don’t get me wrong…. I’ve had some really down times…a very difficult divorce I did not want! I spent a few years trying to understand what I did wrong!

There were many stressful years of working, traveling, paying the bills while taking care of my 2 young sons. It was not easy…. I know how it can be!

But what I have learned is we make choices every day! We make a choice of how we see the world…we can look at what is working or we can look at what’s not. Society usually focuses on what is not working! The news…. social media, politics.

Remember to look for the good in every day…. starting the day with the intention that it will be a good day! That things will go in your favor! Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want.

The Law of Attraction is working all the time! Meaning, what you focus on is what you will attract. This is a pretty amazing thing! THE KEY IS FEELING GOOD! If you are feeling bad, you are focusing on the lack of what you want!

So, on your next BIRTHDAY, CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE! Every part of it! Focus on all the wonderful experiences you have had up until that day and intend for more of those exciting, fun, loving times! Life can be heaven if we focus on the good and understand the challenges are really learning experiences! I find there is always a gift in every challenge!

Enjoy the journey of life and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Health and Happiness, ​​​​​​​
