Born on May 16

Yes my birthday or earth day as some call it, is May 16th. As usual, my birthday brings up questions. Am I in a better place than I was a year ago? Am I making progress as I planned a year ago? What can I change about my environment, my thinking, my planning, about myself, that will improve the bottom line? These are some of the questions I ponder and these spark others and answer spark other questions and answers and then I realize that I am still on my path and that there are no wrong answers as long as I listen to my intuition.

I do follow star signs and I found an interesting post about the characteristics of folks born on May 16th. Admittedly, most, if not all of these can be attributed to folks born on other days, but, when I read them I saw myself. My question to you (those reading that know me) is do you see me when you read this?
