Motivational Monday: The Day of My Birth



I celebrate the day of my birth

Thankful to be present

Despite the hurdles at the onset

Getting older doesn’t cause me dread

It fills me with anticipation instead


I arrived ahead of schedule

My spirit ready before my body

Required nourishment for both

As thunder rolled and lightning struck

I entered the world ready to fight


I celebrate the joining of spirit with body

Though the two often spar

As time passes, my resilience deepens

And my intention to live a full life sometimes wanes

But I still seek balance in mind, body, and spirit


Fragile in body though strong of spirit

Led to an active and curious mind

As the three blend together, my life’s enhanced

And that’s worth celebrating not only annually, but daily!
