And so this week’s moment of happiness despite the news.

Actually, today is my birthday. My 61st. And so as present to myself, I’m taking a day off. This Week’s Moment Of Happiness Despite The News will officially return next week.

However, I can tell you that if I was writing a Moment today, I would tell you that my moment was opening my eyes this morning and realizing that I’ve made it this far. 61  years. It is an every-night practice of mine to face myself in the mirror just before going to bed and saying, “Thank you for getting through this day.” Today, I’m saying, “Thank you for getting through 61 years.”

Happy birthday to me! See you all next week.

And yes, that helps. Despite. Anyway.
