I love birthday’s. They are my absolute favorite. I love the anticipation of a new year. Fresh start. I love being able to have some quiet time to myself to reflect on the last year and all that it meant to me. Being thankful for each breath I breathed and day I was given. Questioning how I grew this past year, how I changed, how I treated people, how I loved. Then looking towards the future. Praying and hoping and dreaming of how I would change and grow in this next year. Figuring out what really matters and how I want to spend my precious time. 365 days to stop wishing and start doing.

It is so important to me to take time away from the excitement of potential gifts, dinners and cake to really reflect and project for the next year and be in prayer. I want to live each day of my next year being led by God in a way that brings more people to Him. I want to have goals and stick to them. I want to surprise myself. I want to make myself proud. Mostly I am thankful for the gift of life and that God loves me so much. What more could I ask for?
