Happy Birthday (to me)!

Hey there,

And a Happy Birthday to you as well, if today happens to be your birthday. I already know I share a birthday with a few cool people: Beau Bridges, Kirk Douglas, Dame Judy Dench, John Malkovich, Donnie Osmond (did you see the video for Weird Al’s White and Nerdy? That alone makes him cool.), Redd Foxx and, I just learned, Simon Helberg (he plays Howard Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory.) I’d be equally proud to count yours as a fellow December 9 birthday.

Don’t worry though, I’m not scheming for gifts or accolades. Really this is just an excuse to share someone else very cool with you. Her name is Willie Murphy, she’s 77 years old and a competitive powerlifter. Pound for pound she’s stronger than I am, with a deadlift well over twice her bodyweight. She’s got an amazing outlook that we all could learn from.

Check out her video in the article HERE.

To our perfect imperfection,
