Happy Birthday! Did you know that today is your birthday? And tomorrow and then the next day and then the next day?
When it is our birthday, we aren’t afraid to ask big. I was at a kids birthday party last weekend and the little girl who we were celebrating ran up to me and said “It’s my birthday today!" So I leaned down and gave her a big hug. A few seconds later, she grabbed my leg and looked up and said “today is my birthday!” So I leaned down again, gave her a hug and said happy birthday! She didn’t leave. She said for the third time, “today is my birthday, what are you going to get me?” She felt entitled to a present, because she knew it was her special day.
I thought, wow. That’s amazing. Here was this little kid, so confident, so sure of herself, that she just asked exactly for what she wanted. She expected to be given something.
I wondered, why don’t we all act like that? Why don’t we go around asking for and expecting to get what we want in life?
When it is our actual birthday, we aren’t afraid to ask. On our birthdays, we feel like it is okay to directly ask for something special, for what we really want. Any other time, we wouldn’t want to inconvenience anyone, but on our birthday, when someone asks us what we want or what we want to do, we think “ok, I am going to ask for that outfit, that golf club, that party.” We have boldness and we ask.
We don’t feel badly or selfish about asking for what we want when it is our birthday. Any other time of year, we hold back. We think about other people and how this could be troublesome or a bother to them. Too often, instead of approaching it like it is our birthday, we think it is greedy, it is selfish. Nothing makes the universe happier than to give us what we want.
When it is our special day, we have a birthday boldness to ask for what we want.
Here’s the deal. We deserve that birthday boldness mentality every day.
We get to live in abundance. We can dare to ask for what we want like it’s our birthday. We each have special gifts, unique contributions to offer this world. We were all born, on our birthdays, with certain desires in our hearts. We wouldn’t want something if we weren’t meant to have it!
Each day is OUR BIRTHDAY.
So for those times when our dreams look impossible, when we are in low points in our lives, and when things look bleak and like they aren’t going to get any better, that is the exact time for us to act like it’s our birthday.
Have the birthday boldness. We have to ask for making a way for our dreams to come true, even when we don’t see a way.
The universe that breathed life into us on the day we were born – it is an overflowing universe. Ask for birthday boldness. Ask for the things that seem impossible. There is more than enough to go around. Ask for the acceleration of our goals.
When we ask the universe for what we want, we have to ask like it’s our birthday. Ask for the secret dreams, for the deep down desires that were placed in our hearts.
Yes, it may look like the odds are against us. But there is a force out there bigger than us. We just have to ask for it. We have to make bold birthday requests. We have to ask in spite of what people are telling us.
Today is your birthday. What do you want? You can command whatever it is. You get to have that birthday boldness to ask for what you want.
Ask for your dreams, your healing, you aren’t inconveniencing anyone. You are the most prized possession.
TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY, what do you want? TWO WEEKS from now it is your BIRTHDAY, what do you want? SEVEN YEARS from now it is your BIRTHDAY, what do you want?
Every day when you get up think, with a childlike faith, “happy birthday to me, this is what I want today!” Have the boldness to ask for what you want. Go to the universe like it is your birthday. When we ask, we will see it show up in your life in ways greater than we can imagine.
Have the birthday boldness to say “let my gifts stand out.. let my work stand out so that it is so inspiring that others. Make me shine, give me influence. Give me ideas. Let me use my influence to benefit mankind. I will help others.”
Boldly ask like it’s your birthday. Dare to ask for what you want. Treating everyday like it’s our birthdays means we can accomplish our dreams faster than we ever thought possible.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! So, in the comments below, tell me, what are your birthday wishes for today?
