My birthday is today and I have a birthday wish for you, a wish that I have lived in this life: live your life to the fullest and make your wildest dreams a living reality. I did and am and there's nothing like it.
How did I do it and how can you live your life to the fullest if you haven't already done so? The very first thing I would say is to break out of your habitual self-identity and routine and directly experience all the beckons you in life. I can say for sure that taking risks, that is, breaking out of your comfort zone leads to exciting things, not always good, not always bad, always different. Different is where you want to live, not the same old same old.
For me, it was about pursuing passions without reservation. I left the great city of my birth, New York City, to go to Los Angeles and Las Vegas where I had/have an incredible life beyond my wildest expectations.
May I encourage you to dream big and live large. Remember, this is your playground and you write the rules. Don't sit on the sidelines watching the days go by.
I keep engaging. I don't sit on the fence. Being a fence-sitter just alienates you. Participate in life, with life, with gusto.
This is my birthday wish for you. I live this and I have fun, I am fulfilled. Now, it's your turn.
