*Birthday Aspirations*


Well...here it is...Outside is starkly beautiful...cold,grey,covered with freshly fallen snow...
Inside is warm, cozy, peaceful....kind of sunshiney...I've got my beautiful necklace,made by Jen on. I wish I could put a link onto her etsy shop, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet...
Last night I treated myself to a new journal to spill all my newly 39 year old thoughts into. I've always made birthday wishes, although I've never been one to believe that they won't come true if you don't keep them a secret. Pretty much, there isn't a place more unsecret(I'm sure that's not a word!) than a blog...

This year I'm not really making 'wishes'...more like aspirations...things that I have started to do, and want to continue exploring...

*First...learning to listen...to my children...my love...others, and MYSELF...my body...my heart. It takes a lot of effort sometimes for me just to zip it!

*Opening up...I've never been one to just shamelessly put myself out there, but I want to be!

*Filling up my well...to let it overflow with the things that bring me such joy,and satifaction....painting, yoga, playing guitar...singing...writing...

*Learning to be kinder to myself(again...I'm learning),and more understanding of others.

I'm also hoping(and I'm sure my kids are too) that my husband brings me a great big icecream cake home from work tonight! Yuuuummmmmmmyyyyy! Then I'm going to have a great time belting out some classic '70's karaoke with the girls....



Cheers!
