Happy Birthday to Me!
Today is my birthday! I'm getting older and at this point not minding it at all. I want to age gracefully, accepting what my body does, and feeling grateful for another year to experience, and learn. This year I have set an intention to live by:
I hope to share more, help more, love more to all those around me. There is a place for them at our table. It might be challenging at times, but hopefully with a set intention, my heart strings will pull a little harder in these situations to keep me reminded on how I hope to live this year and years to come!
Recently a friend shared a wonderful birthday tradition that my family has adopted to celebrate birthdays and special events. Each year we receive wonderful cards with special messages, hilarious antidotes, etc, however it's hard to keep them all and even harder to choose which ones to keep. A friend suggested to start a journal where family members can write in a page, still celebrating events with thoughtful words, but in something that doesn't require as much paper and you can write as little or as much as you want. I have loved this new tradition and it fits perfectly in my keep sake box.
Today is a snowy cozy day in the yyc and it's a perfect day to celebrate my birthday with me by drinking delicious coffee.
