Wow! I can’t believe that I’ve taken 37 trips around the sun. Time is really flying (especially in my 30s). I feel like I just turned 30 although my body might disagree with me. It seems like every other day I wake up and something else is acting kooky. Lol!
A lot has happened this past year: some great, some fun, some so so, and some I’d care to forget! We found a new place to live. P started school. H really got busy on those 2 feet. I cried a lot. I gained weight. I worried a lot. I laughed a lot. I travelled to Houston with the mister to see The Carters. I travelled to Belize with my girls. I travelled to Kentucky with the kids sans hubby. I blogged less. I instagrammed more. I complained a lot. I drove a lot of miles to work. I decided 2 kids was enough and did something about it. EEK! The holidays came and went and I was underwhelmed and unmoved by them. I fretted over money. I played with the idea of going vegan. I started. I stopped. I hoped. I dreamt. I loved a lot. I hugged a lot. I sang a lot. I yelled a lot. I pondered a lot. I say all of this to say that 36 was an emotional rollercoaster year, and I wouldn’t change any of it because it made me who I am today. Those memories, those challenges have made me a better person.
This time around the sun, I’m resetting and recentering. I decided I’m going to Secret the s—t out of my life and live with intentions, positive vibes, mantras, meditations, prayers, and abundance. I saw a pic on Pinterest that said: To manifest your desires give them 3 things: attention, intent, and emotion. So that’s what I’m doing this trip around the sun.
Chapter 37: Complain a lot less. Be grateful a lot more. Shine a whole lot brighter. Sprinkle a ton more magic. And glow the f up!
In a nutshell, I am giving my attention, intentions, and emotions toward:
- Moving into our new home (FINALLY)
- Celebrating H’s 2nd trip around the sun
- Taking P to see the Lion King for her 4th bday
- Working toward $0 balance on my cards
- Saving more
- Taking a trip with the mister
- And a family trip
- Attending Art Basel
- Transitioning into a healthier lifestyle
- Getting a new tattoo
- Publishing my book
- Blogging more
- Working toward that promotion
- Living with intentions
- And living my best life
So happy belated bday to me and welcome to the second half of the year!
