Thanks for the birthday wish, the article on take time for ME! every one must take time no matter what or burn out can happen. I was a good one for not being able to say no when I was asked to volunteer when my daughter's were young, I never took the time for me. Now that I am retired I am really enjoying my time, I also live one day at a time, I am able to let go of issues that I cannot control that happen yesterday if they need attention I resolve it, and tomorrow may never be mine. I enjoy every precious moment in a day, when I meet some I like to share if they want to talk socializing is great. I love to eat well and try to get some kind of exercise in at least 4 times a week.

Thank You for the birthday wish, I am now on this sight again. i started this sight when it was the older sight, and got used to it and when it changed. I got confused and stopped using it. Now I am back. I have bought a fitbit and am again putting myself first.

Thank you for my birthday wishes and the article on putting yourself first! I really appreciate it. I am turning 66- and I have seen more days in the past than I will see in the future. That is ok- I am purposefully living the remainder of my days with intention and a healthy lifestyle.
I know that I will be passing someday into Eternal Life with My Creator. I don't want to rush the process for sure.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. It is my 70th and I'm celebrating by having my annual mammogram and a bone density test. Then I'm going to follow Dick Van Dyke's advice and KEEP MOVING! I'm looking forward to a better year.

Thank you! Your Birthday wishes brightened me up - and gave me good advice. Today, I became 66 (not old by many standards), but became aware of time passing and losing contact with so many I knew. I live alone and have no family, but your message to look after myself has given me new hope for the next year. Since retirement earlier this year, I have taken the plunge to join two gyms and am careful what I eat. My weight is slowly dropping (have lost over 4 Kg/9 lbs) in the last three months and am so glad for the encouragement of Sparkpeople and its members. My Practice Nurse tells me how Spiritual I've become recently. Birthdays can be such awkward moments, but my new motto is now Onwards and Upwards and am looking forward to my new year. To all who share my Birthday, I hope you make the most of the day and enjoy your new milestone.

Thank you, feeling a little lonely this morning on my BD, but sometimes just relaxing by yourself is the best rest.

Being mindful is an important part of any undertaking. One becomes aware of his/her surrounding; his next actions, imminent danger or upcoming accomplishment. I'm sure your reader will benefit from this, too.

Thanks for the birthday greeting! I recommend everyone take your day of birth off work and plan something you enjoy!!! It is a very special date.

Thank you so much for the Birthday wish and the message about putting yourself first. I, too, had talked myself out of doing something special for myself today.
