It's my birthday! I'm officially 25 years old. I'm a big fan of self reflection, so what better time to give myself some birthday "wishes," or rather, goals?
Some things I'd like to accomplish in the next year:
Continue to self improve: Handle my anxiety even better next year than I did this year. I think it requires the simplest of steps: Just take everything one day at a time.
Write more often: I've written more in the last few weeks than I have in the last year. I'd love to keep this momentum going! I feel so inspired.
Speaking of inspired...I'd love to take more photographs. Sure, I'm definitely an amateur and I have a lot to learn, but it's a hobby and challenge I'm excited to take on.
Love deeply. I was so lucky to marry my best friend this year. I'd love to continue showing how grateful I am for his love and my family's love, not only next year but for the rest of my life.
Get crafty. I love to craft, and although I have plenty of pins on Pinterest, I rarely find myself taking the time to complete these projects. This winter will be the perfect time to make some crafts as well as learn how to cook a few meals.
And finally...enjoy life for what it is. My life may be simple, but it's the best. Never forget to be grateful, love, laugh and simply be happy. I'm happy to be alive.
And since I love music and have a history of making birthday-themed playlists (See this and this...) Here's a playlist of songs (old and new) that I'm currently loving. (Warning: It's pretty eclectic.)
