Birthdays are good for you

Lots of people have a lot of ideas about what things make you live longer or die sooner. But I’ve got it figured out.

Drinking water will make you die. I know because my great grandmother drank water and she died.

I also believe that birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

You may agree or disagree with my conclusions, but I do hope you will use your birthday as a time to consider the swift passing of time and how you’ll plan to spend the time between now and your next birthday.

Setting yearly goals is one of the most valuable investments of time you can make. Getting in the habit of doing it on your birthday creates an automatic deadline for setting and achieving those goals on a recurring basis.

Birthdays are also times when we are forced to realize our time in this world is coming to a close. That should prompt us to prioritize those goals that redeem the time.
