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.
