It’s my birthday today ~ and other than that special fact ;-), it’s also a day of a rare event Eclipse~ a total solar eclipse.

NASA’s website says, "A total solar eclipse is very rare because all parts of this puzzle must line up correctly in order for it to occur." 

And Wikipedia says, "A total solar eclipse is considered by many to be the most spectacular natural phenomenon that one can observe."

I watched the replay of it from Turkey, and it was beautiful. They said in 2017, there will be another total eclipse that we will be able to view here in the US. I was thinking that Chloe will be 12 then and will likely be watching it either with her classmates or us (depending on day and time).

If you’d like to see it,

I liked what NASA said, though, about all the pieces of the puzzle having to line up just right for an eclipse to occur. I’ve been feeling that way about my business, particularly over the past year, that all the pieces of the puzzle are fitting together easily now. It took awhile for me to connect the outside edges, but as I stay focused and take consistent action, my momentum is such now that the middle is being filled in very quickly. It’s so amazing.

Anyway, I have a thing about birthdays. I don’t think anyone should have to work on the one day a year that’s uniquely special to them (always thought that should be a rule – that no matter who you were or what you did for a living, if it was your b’day, you were expected to take the day off and enjoy yourself!).

So, even though I love what I do so much that it hardly ever feels like work, I am going to take this day to enjoy it…ok, I’m going to do two tiny work-related things, but then the whole day is MINE… 🙂

So, cheers to me!
