Today, I turn 33!
Aka…your “Jesus year.” The year you take your life into your hands and get. shit. done.
And you know what? I believe it.
2016 is already shaping up to be a pretty amazing year. Though I learned in late 2015 that my mom has ovarian cancer, in 2016, she’s freaking killing it. I traveled to the Dominican Republic for an amazing beach weekend with BFFs last weekend, and I’m going to Milan next month AND I have aÂ HUGE trip on the horizon for the end of the year.
I feel like there’s a ton I’m doing for my own personal development and taking risks. I read You Are a BadassÂ on vacation, and holy crap, everyone needs to read it. Even if there aren’t a million actionable things to do, reading affirmation after affirmation was really helpful to me and put me in a really positive mindset to make me feel like IÂ could accomplish anything. I don’t have any crazy plans to leave my job or move or anything like that, but I’m done playing small and want to live as big a life as possible while being kind to myself.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, my grand birthday plans include:
- An Uplift workout
- Heading to our studio in LIC because a guy I went to high school with is going to be on our daily workout show. I’m hoping to get in on the workout myself, but we’re not sure yet if there’s space (hence my “backup” workout at Uplift, because, yes, I’m crazy.) You can watch it for free here.
- Some bubbles at work. During Whole 30, a coworker and I were talking about how much we missed bubbles and put a calendar invite for tomorrow on my calendar for the bubbly.
- Birthday dinner!
