I'm celebrating my birthday today.  It's a quiet little celebration, but a celebration indeed.  I celebrated my birthday eve with the guys last night.  They're off to work and school today and have rugby practice tonight.  They gave me these beautiful flowers and the most gorgeous earrings.  I have to say that the adorable Cat in the Hat card was the icing on the cake.  Speaking of cake, that will come later, after yoga.  Right now I'm just enjoying a cup of tea and a clear head free from all the darned sickness that's been taking over lately.  I love birthdays.  It's great to have brand new sparkly year ahead.  Here's what my birthday horoscope from the LA Times says about my year ahead:

"You become even more like those you admire.  Your growing skills put you in the running for different kinds of jobs.  Jump into career changes whole-heartedly.  The early success of a venture in June will be followed by hard work and then another big win in September."

Doesn't this sound great?  I can hardly wait.  I love reading my birthday horoscope.  I'm not telling you what it says my lucky numbers are just in case they're the right lotto numbers.  

I always give myself the week between new year's and my birthday as a time of reflection.  My new year's resolution is very simple this year.  More yoga, Less belly.  Pretty straight up and to the point.    The main focus of yoga is the breath.  Breathing properly is the foundation that the poses and clear mind are built upon.  In honor of my resolution I've chosen my word for 2010.  Breathe.

Tami, HAHPPY BIRTHDAY! If you're coming out to CHA, I'd love to treat you to a slice of belated birthday cake! Let me know.

Love your mantra for the year. It'd do a lot of us good to slow down and just breathe sometimes.
