How To Make a Memory Last Forever

With my birthday around the corner yet again, I find myself getting all in my feels. Not for any particular reason, but because it’s a time of year that allows me the chance to think about what I have accomplished and the lessons I have learned. Inching my way closer and closer to forty, I am proud of every step of my journey that has led me to where I am today.

Life doesn’t always go the way we want it to, but I also know that the path I am on right now is the one that will lead me to my best self. I am working on my physical, emotional and mental wellbeing and I like to think that 35 will be better than 34. Only time will tell I guess – but in the meantime, if I could have the perfect birthday, here are a few things I would want it to include!  Continue reading “What My Perfect Day Would Entail”
