A Simple Rule Since I was 12
--by peay_lewis, posted Feb 13, 2008
One characteristic EVERY human being has is the need to feel special, significant and appreciated, and what better way and time to make a friend, neighbor, client, co-worker, your child's teacher, or even the cashier at your neighborhood grocery store feel special than by simply remembering their birthday each year.
Talk about putting an instant smile on that person's face, if only but once a year. It brightens their day and it brings so much personal joy to me each time I do it. And because I know so many people, I'm pretty much telling someone happy birthday every month of the year. I'm now 30-something, so I guess you could call me the "Happy B-Day Diva"!
And here's a tip -- if you cannot remember the exact date a person arrived on this earth, no worries, just try to remember the month they were born. Then say, "Hey Ashley, isn't your birthday around this time of year...?" And Voila! Instant joy, Instant karma!
Have a Happy Birthday to ALL of You!
thanks for the great article though and I too try to remember bday's based on month rather than day!
Loved your story... yours is a wonderful practice! As someone who keeps forgetting even my relatives' birthdays, I'm curious as to how you keep track of all these dates?
And when is your own birthday, B-day Diva? Some of us may want to remember that ; )
Can you post a ps, perhaps?
Also, "B-day Diva" suits you perfectly... Did you know you can change your login nickname in your profile!
Just a thought!
