Monday was my 51st birthday. I don't mind admitting my age because getting older doesn't bother me. Some people will say it's just another year, or it's only a number. But I say it's the start of another year of life which means I'll have more chances to do what my heart's telling me to do, more opportunities to grow and learn, and more time to spend with the people I love the most!
Also, a birthday is a great time for a little indulgence! I scheduled several things this week like a mani/pedi, a haircut, teeth whitening, and I bought some new clothes, books, and some furniture and accessories for my house which is undergoing major renovations! (Pictures coming soon!) Overall, it's been a great week, and I'm thankful to start another year on this planet!
Do you celebrate your birthday yourself? How do you pamper yourself?
I bought this book at Target, which is my all-time favorite store, and thought it would be a wonderful way for you to get to know me better and for me to share some other aspects of my life with you. So I'll pick and choose a few questions each week to share with you.
It seems like every day on social media there is a person (or people) sharing a story about how someone criticized them for something they chose to do that didn't hurt anyone. It could be something as simple as binge-watching Downton Abbey instead of cleaning the house. Yep. I've done it. But that's just it. Why should we feel guilty about it? I don't feel guilty about the TV programs I watch, the movies I enjoy, or the music I listen to because they're my choices. So I'm going to share some of my not-so-guilty pleasures with you today, and I encourage you to let go of the feelings of guilt and just be you!
So I wrote a post last year, sharing 9 things about me. A lot can happen in a year so I wanted to share 9 more things you don't know about me, probably because they happened last year or I just haven't shared them yet.
I read a blog challenge on Tumblr tonight, and the question was: How would your life change if everyone knew your secrets? I cringed and swallowed hard. Wow. That wouldn't be good.
We all have secrets. Maybe it's something simple like you had a crush on your best friend's boyfriend back in high school, or it could be something more sinister. Either way, can you imagine how your life would change if all your secrets came to light? Could you stand in front of a room full of people while your deepest, darkest secrets were read aloud?
I know my life would definitely change. Even my closest friends don't know all of my secrets because, let's be honest, that's why they're called secrets. Would knowing all of my secrets change how they felt about me? Probably not, but I would wonder, and that would change my relationship with them.
So how about you? How would your life change if everyone knew your secrets?
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
