It will be another 365 days around the sun on the 6th of November that I’ve physically been on this planet.
At this point, I had practically lost track of my age and I’m just enjoying the fact that I’m still waking up every morning and spending more time with those I love.
I’m focused on paying attention to the present, doing the things I love, and taking things one step at a time. I’m listening to my heart and soul and doing a lot of self-healing, self-confidence, and self-love. I’m practicing gratitude and reminding myself of all the blessings and accomplishments, big and small, I’ve reached thus far.
I’ve been releasing more of the past pain, people, and worries, and welcoming an abundance of the unknown, the unexpected, and the lessons.
Throughout the years, I’ve had big celebrations, small gatherings, and birthdays when I’ve been on my own. Each scale of celebration has taught me different things.
10 years ago, I was a teenager simply trying to apply for colleges and graduate from high school. I was excited to become an adult and do more adult things – whatever ideal I had of adults back then. I was excited to achieve another milestone in life and see where my hard work was taking me.
10 years later, I became a young, independent woman, simply trying to run my business and take life one breath at a time. I experienced pain, heartache, and loss; and formed new friendships, healthy habits, and an understanding of myself and the world around me.
10 years from now, I don’t know who I’ll be, or what I’d have accomplished by then.
For the next decade, I am focusing on...
Welcoming the unknown.
Thriving in my business(es).
Peace of mind and heart.
Laughing until my stomach aches.
Cooking a variety of cuisines.
Giving back to communities and causes.
Building a home.
Living in the present.
Staying calm under pressure.
Being a fur mom.
Feeding my curiosities.
Doing my part in healing and loving Mother Earth.
Thanking the sun, moon & stars.
Taking care of my loved ones.
10 years from now, I hope...
I hope that I am still doing what I love;
I hope I have explored more of the world and discovered more of who I am as a person;
And I hope my heart and soul are full of happiness, serenity, and love.
