Hello 32. Goodbye 31.
Do you ever look back on a year and think, where did it go? I’ve known today was approaching, but it came quicker than I was ready for. Its’s not that I’m afraid of being another year older.. it’s just letting go of a year that went too fast, yet was full of so much good and not so good has been tricky to let go of. It almost feels like 31 wasn’t long enough.
Anyways, here I am today. 32 and looking into a year full of anticipation, unknowns, and all the good that lies ahead waiting to unfold even if I feel like I haven’t totally caught up with 31!
Birthday’s come with wishes. Traditionally in that moment before you collect all your air to blow out the candles burning on your cake while everyone you love surrounds you watching in anticipation. Today was a little different. My gift to myself today was a coffee date with me. In my special place.
As I sat in my special spot on the beach, sun beating on my face, sipping my coffee and looking out towards the incredibly calm water.. I myself found that I felt exactly like that water and sun. So calm, ready, and full of light for the year ahead of me!
I can honestly say, I am excited to see what this year brings! Last year weighed a little more on the harder side than easier, and it didn’t break me, it made me grow, dig deeper and appreciate everything I have in front of me! Life is truly amazing even in the hard, messy, not so pretty parts. And even though I have no idea what lies ahead, I still have excitement for what 32 has planned for me!
