It’s my birthday month!


It’s my Birthday month! For the first time in a long time I actually felt good and I woke up happy, sounds dramatic but I am not a fan of my birthday at all. Its’s not that I am scared of getting older, I just question the unknown.

I took the day off work (this is one of my sacred rules), I had brekkie with the family, i had a spa session and a mini staycation. The weekend was filled with friends, family and LAUGHTER – glorious laughter!

Usually when it gets to my birthday I know the year is practically over. So I am sharing a few things I have learn’t over the last 10 months.

  1. You cannot change people, no matter how much they frustrate you – in all areas of life.
  2. You really don’t miss much when you stay off Facebook for a month – except maybe product launches…
  3. Embrace change with your arms wide open (hint…hint). It forces yourself to grow.
  4. Simplify your life (this includes material items and people)
  5. Pamper yourself – more facials and me time!
  6. Always work hard and make time to play hard.
  7. Seek guidance – I have a mentor now. It was time.
  8. Diets suck, a healthy lifestyle is where its at. I need to make more time for gym and meal prep.
  9. Be grateful.
  10. Worrying is like a rocking chair – it gets you nowhere. You cannot change the unknown!

Obviously this is a list of things that I need to work on daily because I’m not perfect by any means & need daily reminders. It actually helps to write these reminders down!

What would you add to this?

Thank you for all the birthday messages, you all made my day!
