Another Year


At some point this week I turn another year older.

It's not a milestone birthday. I think I get to select the same box when filling out surveys.

Maybe it is just me but turning another year older at this stage of my life is a hmmm more than cause for a celebration.

Don't get me wrong. I am very thankful I made it another year. However, the days of getting all kinds of excited are somewhat behind me; doesn't mean I don't appreciate the well wishes and enjoy the presents.

What happens more often than not is I find myself living inside my head for weeks leading up to the big day.

Assessing.

Pondering.

Reflecting.

This year has been no different.

I'm almost right with myself and will be able to enjoy the day once it arrives.

In the last year I have not made much movement.

I have loved. I have learned. I have laughed. I have made sound decisions. I have lived.

On the flip side, some of the changes I wanted to make in the last year, I have not accomplished completely.

This year? This year will be different.

Peace and Love Peeps.

i think the past year has been a growing year for you...a positive light.

you should write an empowerment book...for real.

Goals are good, but don't be too hard on yourself. Your birthday should be fun - don't over analyze it - enjoy it. :)

I remember your comment the other night, so now I gotta go do a little digging to figure out the exact date.

Happy week!

Stop with the old jokes. Maybe BK will get you something nice for you're birthday. If not I'm sure he'll ruin it for you.

How did I come so late to this post? My nose has been in a book. I imagine your birthday has passed. I hope it was so happy! Here's to another great year!
