Assume The Position: Power Stretch

Updated: Feb 26, 2023

I’m in the *Power Stretch* of my birthday 2.23. It’s another opportunity to tell myself that not only is the day special - I AM SPECIAL. The 12 days before and after are a time to confirm and realign ( be in harmony with) your highest and absolute best! I've read that each day represents a month of your birth year (12) twelve.

I am in complete gratitude and thank God for the life I’ve lived ( ups and downs) and reaffirm full Co-Creation responsibility for my life: to accept every challenge, setback, and hurdle as a means to fuel my growth, get out of my comfort zone, and face my fears with a loving and compassionate heart .

I trust all things are working together for my GOOD! I ask myself , “How can I better serve the planet for the remaining years of my life? What positive contributions can I make?” I ALSO CELEBRATE MYSELF! Yes, a strange practice in a society that would have certain groups and genders lay low and play small. BUT NO! BE BOLD in your living! Get out of your comfort zone, boring patterns and habits. TO EXPERIENCE NEW... YOU have to DO NEW!

This is me standing on the desk in a hotel in the theater district of NYC. I was ASSUMING THE POWER STRETCH POSITION, just three days after my 2022 birthday. We saw a show, ate great food, and hung out with friends. Months later I wrote, produced, directed and starred in a Web Series that has done pretty well on YouTube. I STILL CAN'T believe I pulled that off, and yet "OF COURSE I DID" rings as truth in my heart as well. THERE'S NOTHING I CAN'T ACHIEVE. There's nothing YOU can't achieve!

When your birthday is on the horizon, I recommend you assume the Power Stretch position - your version of course. Don’t waIt for people to celebrate you , or just mark the day with drinking and partying . That can fun, sure - but don’t miss the amazing creation power in your possession
