Wine me, dine me, 39 me!

you are my bucket list

We good-bye 38 hello 39-40.  No, I am not turning both 39 and 40 at the same time.  But I am turning 39 in 10 days.  For some reason, this feels super significant to me.  It’s a pattern – 19 was important, 20 wasn’t, 29 was meaningful, 30 not so much and now, 39 – cool.  40 whatever.  I’ve got big plans for this coming year.  As I do most years, really.  And to be fair, it’s not the new year’s resolution kinda plans that last 4 days.  I make this shit happen.  Daily practise, baby steps to big goals and leaps into the unknown.  Strange that January 1st felt insignificant this year…tonight feels like a breaking open of what’s about to come.  A look back on where I’ve been in the last 9 years of my 30’s.  The day has worked out to be exactly as it should – as most days do when you move with what feels right.  February is just the month to kick this all off!  ROAR! Big ole happy dance!!!!!!!!  Whoa, I got all carried away there.

This year is going to be about big adventures, taking chances, connections with people I love and ones that I meet along the way.  Risking.  Being generous.  Kicking ass in my business and in my life.  Living up to my expectations and trusting my own word to myself.  Feeling deeply.  Getting caught up in good books and great wine within lazy afternoons.  Delicious sex, salty chocolates.  Walk, hikes, stretttching – figuratively and yep, actually.

So, I am kicking off this year in a way that aligns with where I am and how I am feeling about my birthday.  I have officially made February my birthday MONTH! Celebrating all the people in my life that I hold dear. Spending time together and cherishing each and every one of them and their unique qualities and the time that we have together.  Telling them how much they mean to me and how they make my life more awesome than if they weren’t in it.  They are the every day gifts that make up my life.

So be ready world – or don’t be, that’s okay too.  But I’m livin’ it – my last year of my 30’s in a BIG BOLD BEAUTIFUL way.

    Amen, Michaella! What a firey post. I’m super excited for you in this new chapter of your life, business, etc. I can’t wait to see what amazing things you manifest. I, too, am going through a transition, after a break-up and with my budding business. Here’s to new beginnings, serenity, adventure, and of course delicious sex & salty chocolates. 😉

  2. Ooohhh happy belated birthday! It’s a few months later now – how are you travelling?

    I turned 40 in April. I felt very similar. I am determined that this is the year that I step out of my comfort zone more. The year for more time with my family and less time on those people who suck my energy away. It is the year that I get my business off the ground and running and finish the book I have been working on.
    I think that you are on a great track on celebrating the last year of being in your 30’s. Have a great year!

    Vibrant post, Michaella! A few months late but Happy Birthday, and I’m so pumped for you, and for myself just from reading this post. Why shouldn’t I grab each day by the horns and rock it? i’ve still got three days in my birthday month, i could pull it off, right? lol!

  6. Brilliant post Michaella. How’s it playing out so far? And just out of pure curiosity, what day is your birthday? Mine is February 6th. I love how you’re embracing your 39th year. I especially resonated with “trusting my own word to myself.” This has been a big one for me lately. I think this is such an important practice to embrace, because if we can’t trust ourselves, then it will be pretty hard to trust others. Love the energy you bring to the world. May you have many more years just like this one. 🙂

    • Amazingly! Better than even expected in someways. That said, I caught myself playing small in a couple of areas and I course corrected. Every day is a new one, with a new chance to step into all of us {or at least a little bit more :)}

      Yes, trusting our own word to ourselves. Simple yet powerful isn’t it?!?!?!

      My birthday is on the 9th – we will be celebrating on the same weekend no doubt!

    Wonderful post Michaella! Absolutely refreshing. I know exactly what you mean with the numbers- 29 felt important… but then 30 didn’t so much and now I am 31. I love the idea of “trusting your own word, kicking your butt, and getting caught up with good books.” These are things I promised myself this year and I have been happy with most of my progress. Glad to hear your year is going well. I also celebrate my birthday very close to the new year- Jan 29. (very close to feb) So I tend to align my birthday with goals for the year. For this year the main promise I made to myself was to make more connections with people- especially my own family who I’ve tended to stray away from the year before. That’s been actually going really well! And I’ve reunited with more than 10 of my very close friends from childhood which is all in line with my theme of being more around PEOPLE and focusing on relationships! Great post!! I especially love the picture- and the words in the picture frame: “YOU are my bucket list!” I will use that one in my home too, it’s soooo inspiring.

    • Thanks for sharing Jesicka! Glad to hear you are feeling connected to those you have chosen, friends and family, to reunite with. At the end of the day, it really does all come down to relationships doesn’t it? Yesterday I saw a t-shirt that said “Other things may change us, but we start and end with family” which I pondered on and off for most of the day. I believe family can be the family we choose as well as the one we were born into. Both have something to lend of in our time here. Lots of good food for thought.

      PS – Happy 1/2 Birthday!
