Do you ever feel like you just don’t have enough? You want a better job, you want that new car, you want the latest gadget. It just seems that no matter how much we acquire, we want more and more. I was the kind of person that was rarely satisfied with what I had. To some, it was a dream to have some of the things I had but I just didn’t appreciate and bask in the moment. Instead, I made a big deal of acquiring even more. It wasn’t until I made the decision to stop looking too much in the future and start looking in the present that I was finally able to be grateful and appreciate people as well as my possessions. It wasn’t an easy feat but I got there and you can too.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Another year to add to my life! I am so grateful to my mother for putting up with me all these years. I will never be able to repay the sacrifice that she made in raising me. I love her to bits!! I’m also so thankful for the people that I’ve met throughout my life because they each taught me a lesson and contributed to the person I am today. It’s always been a pleasure to be born at the end of the year. It’s an opportunity to look back and see all the choices you made that year and whether you can improve in preparation for the next year. At such a festive time of the year, I feel just a tad bit special. I love my life although complicated.. I hope to make those more serious choices in the near future that will establish my legacy. I will enjoy this time very much! I’m now embracing getting older… It’s a lovely present every year 😉
