Turning 38…

waitingI remember when I turned 38 some years ago. I thought it was the worst birthday ever. I spent almost the entire day alone, and I was miserable. You see, I was waiting. I was waiting for my family to call me and wish me a Happy Birthday. I was waiting for my hubby to get home from work and make me feel special. I was waiting for my kids to validate and acknowledge me, telling me that I had been a good mom. Unfortunately, none of the affection I so patiently waited for came.

I became angry. I wondered why no one made me feel special or made a big deal out of my special day. Then, it finally hit me. That ah ha moment when I realized…

Life Lesson: Love and validation comes from within. Waiting for others to appreciate and acknowledge you leads to disappointment. Celebrate yourself!
