Happy Birthday to Me


The Best Is Yet To Be Quote

Another Year

I am only minutes into being another year older, and I find myself both looking back and looking ahead.  As I reflect on the year that just ended, I am in awe of how much has changed since my last birthday and also how much has remained the same.  Last year was filled with unexpected opportunities and blessings and unimaginable heartache and challenges, and in the end, I am right where I am supposed to be, even though I am not necessarily where I want to be.  While it may be the end of a year, it is not the end.  There is still so much more for me to say, do, feel, and experience, so, onward I go.

As I anticipate the year ahead, I have written on my heart and baby soul new hopes, dreams, plans, and desires, and I am crazy enough to believe in myself and the universe to make them come to fruition.  I am filled with anticipation, determination, hope, and a bit of fear, and I cannot wait to see what is around the corner.

Wherever this new part of my journey takes me, I will take with me the people, lessons, and experiences that have helped me to become who I am today.  I also will carry with me the two following mottos that have guided me and comforted me over the years:
