Of birthdays, friends and karma

Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a lot to atone for.

It's possible that I have overestimated my karmic debt. But I doubt it. Unlike all who know me, I know each sin intimately. So to celebrate my birthday tomorrow, I'm going to do a little bit of public payback.

Taking a page from my friend Tammy Ramsey, and perhaps the influence of my latest Book Club book, I'm going to post a sentence or two every morning on Facebook that says what I'm happy for that day. I'm not going to lie: some days I'm gonna lie. Because I know me. And I know that there will be some mornings when it'll be harder to push back the bear than others.

Those days I'll attempt to be funny if not 100 percent positive.

But I'm going to give it a go.  Cross your fingers. Light a candle. Do whatever it is you do. This could be the dawn of a whole new me.
