Today is my birthday! I might now be considered in my mid-to-late-20s but I have the same enthusiasm for my birthday as a toddler.
I’ve put together a dinner party at my favourite local pizza joint for tomorrow. But today, I aim to act on the thought of the day and spend 24 hours kicking off my new year by being exactly who I want to be/am meant to be at this point in my life. I plan on luxuriating in it – a frothy mixture of independence and free-will that I should hold more dear. There is no one to hold me back today or in my forseeable tomorrows. No one to tell me that I can’t crack open my bottle of pink bubbly first thing when I wake up and take it back into bed along with an almond croissant and watch the Godfather, An Affair to Remember or Casablanca (I haven’t decided which yet). The day can take me anywhere I want. I am going to spend my day making myself happy and figuring out who I want to be this year. I will think about what makes me smile, and what I want to continue smiling about for the next 365 days.
Wishing you the best of everything,
P.S. I realize I should stop making promises when it comes to this blog but I really miss it and am trying to find a way to add it back into my life.
