Sunday was an awesome birthday. I went on a hike with Mom. Spent oodles of time petting Emerson. And had delicious hibachi with my parents. It was a nice break from the promoting and writing.
It also got me thinking about birthday wishes.
You know how I make annual New Year’s Resolutions?
Well this year, I am going to make 3 birthday wishes for the coming year of my life.
1) More time to myself.
As an introvert, I need my alone time. So I will be scheduling time to be alone to read, to think, to curl up in bed and cuddle with my dog. It’s a new priority. I am taking at least one full day off each week. Disconnecting and relaxing.
And since I’m starting a part time job this fall, I’ll be pulling back on social media. I’ll be here on the blog and once a day on Facebook. But that’s probably it for a while.
Writing has to come first.
2) Better eating.
I went on a sugar bender this weekend. And my body feels blucky. My skin looks yucky. And my belly is all sorts of bloated.
3) More fun.
I don’t feel like I have enough fun. It feels like I work more now than I ever did before. And the fun that was so easy to find in my 20s, has been eluding me in my mid and now late 30s.
What wishes would you make for your birthday?
