Ever since I was a little girl I remember wanting to feel so special on my birthday. Who got me a present? Is there a cake involved, and will I get any money! Nothing has changed. LOL! Either way, birthdays have always been and will always be very special to me. Each year I grow deeper and deeper into the person God intended me to be, and I'm still growing and learning. Over the past year I have adapted a new way of thinking that truly brings me joy, and I wish I could bottle it up and sell it, but because I love all of you so much I will just tell you my secret for free.
The secret is releasing your mind, body and soul to be free to live out loud. Living your best life has been a 'thing' for a while now, and for some, the meaning is having the best things money can buy. For me it is finally embracing my worth, my destiny and my dreams. That's it! I have moments of stress but I release those vibes immediately because it causes disruption in the current fairy tale I'm living.
At 47, I've never felt so good. Who knew aging could be done in reverse! At least, that is my end goal. On this exact day one year ago, I was writing my first blog and wondering what in the world I had gotten myself into. The into is this! I brought my vision to life and I'm happy with where I've been, where I'm going and what lies ahead.
Another dance around the sun and oh how sweet it is. On this day I am thankful to God for allowing me another year to get this thing called life right! I'm blessed and I am oh so thankful to have my family who loves me to the moon and back and who I love a million times over. Thankful for my dear friends who will ride with me until the wheels fall off, they know exactly who they are. Thankful for the new friends I have met and will meet along the way, you all are everything!
Happy Birthday to me!
