They Say It’s Your Birthday!
No matter our age, it seems commonplace for many of us to “take inventory” on our birthdays.
We ask ourselves whether we have accomplished all that we are “supposed” to have done by a certain age, e.g., promotions, financial savings, partnering, marrying, adventures, and on and on and on.
The problem is the way we take inventory seems designed to focus on what we have not done yet – ways in which we have failed ourselves and are falling behind in life plans. And this can lead to the birthday blues.
Additionally, there is this unspoken expectation around birthday celebrations that they be big, exciting and epic. But what if that is not how you want to celebrate your day.
I recently posted about ways to decrease stress and manage those blues.

Wishing you wellness and satisfaction,
This year my New Year’s resolution is to continue being true to myself and to continue being me – in as authentic a way as possible – and to move forward on the progress of being present that I have made this past year.
When I think about work-life integration and wellness, I consider whether we are satisfied and growing as we want to in our current positions.
