Another regular day

"This is to remind you what you are capable of" is what my gf wrote on the box. I'm humbled and honored to know and have the kind of friends that I have in my life. Not only that, I have the best gf in the world. Yet, over the last couple of years when I learned to to put such a great emphasis on material possessions, I realized that celebrating my b-day wasn't a big deal to begin with me. I go all out for friends and family but when it comes to me, I keep it on the down low. I don't need anything but of course I want things. I have more than I could ever want or need and the universe takes care of me. If I really need something it will provide sure enough. To me, my birthday is just another regular day. A day to reflect on the last 25 years of my life and to think where I'll be in another 25 years from now. All I did today was wake up late, messed around online, got some tempura, played some old school arcade games,(ANY KING OF FIGHTERS FANS OUT THERE ?!?) and went to the Dream Team L.A. meeting like I do every week. Course when I walked in I was taken by surprised when they sang happy b-day to me and brought me some cup cakes. Aww I was touched. My partner in outreach and recruitment looked out for me. She's awesome. None the less it was another good day.
