Happy Birthday

Spread the love

Today is my 33rd birthday. I’m struggling with that number. While I’m happy that I am on this side of the ground, I’ve always heard that your 30’s are better than your 20’s. I mentioned that to my dad yesterday morning and he said it’s all in perspective. Perspective… Okay. Well if it is about perspective, I’m going to make 33 goals for this year. I did a 101 in 1001 project once upon a time. 1001 days is a little longer than a year (as in 2.75 years) and I wanted something a little more specific to my 33rd year

  1. I love your goals, and I think goals are very important!!!!! I think your dad is right, every year is what you make of it. Every day is truly a gift and a blessing. Live each day to the fullest!!!! YOU GO GIRL!!!!! A few years ago I did random acts of kindness on my birthday. It was hard, but I loved it!!! I need to do that again!
