Hello Lovelies! My birthday is tomorrow and I'm starting to get really excited! I'm turning a whopping 27 years old (goodness!). It is very strange for me to even say that. I'm looking forward to another great year and am so very thankful for my friends and family who are such a blessing in my life.
As I think upon the next year of my life there is a fruit basket of thoughts hanging in the back of my mind, filled with personal goals and ambitous pursuits. As the story goes for so many, I tend to let myself get overwhelmed with all that is going on in my life and sometimes I need to put on the brakes and remind myself to breath in the moment, and be thankful for where I am.
So what will be my birthday wish? I've been thinking all day about what the idea of "making a wish" really means, and even though it's somewhat silly, I still find myself making one everytime I blow out my candles. Why is that? What do you think about the idea of making a wish? Regardless, I enjoy the tradition and definitely will carry it on. There is something magical and positive about it, an encouraging symbol that you have another year of life ahead of you; time to pursue your dreams and be the person you want to be. For whatever reason it brings me a sense of comfort and makes me reflect on what really matters. So what about you? Do you still make wishes on your birthday?
