30 Day Challenge Post#10

Today is my little cousins 7th Birthday.  I can’t believe how much time has gone by, but seems like when you have children or children around you – something like time is very visible.  I wish nothing but the best for her and hope that this world will become kinder and more at peace for her in the future.  I hope that she finds someone to love and who love her back.  Treats her kind and shares her dreams and will help her make them come true – and in return she does the same.  There are so many things I want for her and my nephew, but more importantly I wish she sees more happiness than sorrow.  Today – I’m grateful for TIME.  Time to spend with people I care about, time to see the children around me grow to be adults, and time to ponder about what I will do with my time.  Happy 7th Birthday my dear Kyra – I know you will grow to be a beautiful young girl who will do right in this world and for others.  Love you to the Moon and may all your wishes come true my dear KyrBear.

Happy Birthday to Me…

Today is my Birthday, but also my New Year.  I decided that I was going to make one change this year (ok I really have many but that is for another post).  From this year forward I would start my New Year on my birthday – Jan. 31st!

It’s 31 days after the official New Year, but without the pressure.  This way I could celebrate with the best of them and then wake up on the 1st of January without the gripping feeling of panic that I needed to fulfill some sort of “New Year Resolution(s)” ~ granted that I don’t really make resolutions, but I still felt like the pressure was on.

So today…it’s Happy Birthday to me and Happy New Year.  May the year bring me health, wealth, happiness, and new spirit of finding my purpose. 

I feel like my spirit is asking to be explored more deeply.  I’m not really sure what it’s trying to say, but I know that I beginning to listen to it again.  I’m just not sure when I stopped listening?  I pray that I have the strength to truly be awakened by it and to find the meaning of my “Personal Legend.” (The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho)

So…the journey begins.

Happy Trails…
