Birthday Registry: 26th Birthday

I spent the entirety of the last two years learning to love myself better, it sounds really corny when I say it – but if you think about it – it’s a hard task. You’re the only person who’s been with you through every emotion, feeling, thought and deed. You know what was right and what wasn’t – but sometimes, you have to step back and remind yourself to love whoever you are.

I started this last year, where before my 25th birthday I sat down and wrote a list of things that I really actually wanted for myself. Tonight, I sat and reviewed them, and realized on this journey of self-love and exploration – I’m on the right track.

So, this year, for me, I want:

  • Be in the present: From my last year, I learned to be in the moment – you know, the whole not documenting my entire life at all times – yeah I got there. But, this year, I want to learn to be ‘in’ the present. I’m constantly in an inner battle of the future – so much so, that I forget to really take what’s in it for me now.
  • Learn to say ‘Yes’: I can’t say ‘no’, but this isn’t for that. I want to take more risks – some calculated, some not. In that spirit, I want to learn to say ‘yes’ to new experiences.
  • Find time for my writing: I keep saying this – that I want to eventually drop everything and just write – especially if its cheesy romance novels and poems. I want to find my muse and inspiration – and make more time for my kind of writing.
  • Putting Myself First: This is something that is really difficult for me. But, learning to prioritize my needs – needs to be something I follow through on.
  • Nobody can read (my) mind: I sometimes wonder why a certain person didn’t exactly do or behave in the manner I had cooked up in my head. These scenarios are a great reminder that if I want something – I need to ask for it and not wait for it to eventually happen.
  • Stop Overthinking: And give myself and my head a break.
  • It’s okay to wait: Things will happen when they are meant to.

I am the girl who can talk and talk and talk and talk and still continue to talk. The most ideal way to make me heard is to share it with everyone else. I'm not new at this, but I hope to be in a uninterrupted continuation of posting what's on my mind! I hope you enjoy!
