Birthday Present for You

It's official. I'm 39.
I've been thinking of myself as 39 for long enough that I feel like I'm finally catching up with myself.

My birthday present to myself this year is the best shape I've ever been in. By the time I am officially 40, I will feel and look better than I ever have before. That's a promise.

I can feel my commitment to this in a way that makes me know it will absolutely come to pass. No ifs, ands or big butts. : )

It's different than wanting it, different than flirting with the idea. I'm claiming it. I own this one now. I'm enjoying it already! Can you tell?

My birthday present to YOU is my seven day e-course I've been threatening to launch for several weeks now. It's not perfect, but it never will be, and I refuse to let that stop me any longer. Enjoy!

Abraham said something recently that inspired me to change my thoughts about aging. They said aging is inevitable, since we experience the passing of time. But decline with aging is NOT inevitable.

So I'm now on board with embracing my real age, and having new meanings about what that number means. I'm not resisting 39 or any other number again. Instead, I'm creating what that age means.

All right - I'm off to set some other additional intentions for my new year, and invite any of you who have birthdays this month to share yours as well!



  1. Happiest of Happy Birthdays to you, Jeannette!

    I so love your writing. Every time my sister and I talk we say, "Did you read Jeannette's blog?" Fabulous stuff. Sure hope your bloggy goodness is on your new year list!



    PS - My birthday was Sept. 1, and this year, turning 35 just felt RIGHT. That was nice for a change!

  2. Happy birthday, Jeannette! Good on you for embracing your chronological age, and even more for starting the physical lack of aging you're about to inspire us all with! May they diverge until, at 59, people gape and say, "Surely you're not over 29?"

  3. Yay for 35, Nikki!! And thanks for the encouraging words, my friend - that's the best present I could get!!

    John, thanks for the great visual of people gaping when they hear my true age in 20 years. ha! That's the best!

  4. PS - thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone who emailed me separately! What wonderful things to hear!

    It means so much to know these words make a difference in your lives. It's honestly the best gift I could ever receive.

    Thank you!!!

  15. Hi Jeanette!

    Happy Birthday 16 days late! I have been thinking about you and now that I’m applying my ‘I have all the time in the world’ belief, I can leisurely read your wonderful blog again!

    The new moon is tomorrow and boy does that ‘kick in’ your solar return! The years just get better and better!

    And thank you!

    I love your writing, I love your vibe, I love your insights, I love you!!!


  16. Well, Kim, that's about as nice a birthday wish as a girl can get! Thank you!

    And thanks for setting such a strong example as to what's possible when we harness the power of our mind.

    (Is it harness, or set free?)

    Either way, nicely done, girlfriend!
