How to Have a Happy Birthday: Lessons Learned Upon Turning 36

1. Get up a couple of hours before everyone else, so that you can start the day – and the year – on your own terms, and quietly.

2. Stop and smell the flowers –
especially if they are sweet peonies from a friend’s garden


3. Give good hints.


4. But be open to surprises!

5. Let yourself be serenaded.

6. Review your year, and see how it compared to your hopes.

7. Look forward to another trip ’round the sun!
