So today is my birthday! Yay! Happy Birthday to me.
I feel very grateful to have turned another year older and maybe even a little wiser. I am also thankful for all the wonderful and kind people I have in my life that took the time to send me love and light on the day of my birth, your all amazing!
When I woke up this morning as is typical on my birthday it was a bitter cold -12, windchill -22. Yup, welcome to Canada!
As my car strained to start and I waited for the ice on the inside and outside of my windows to melt away I couldn’t help but think what a blessing it is to be born in January. Bare with me…
Capricorns are of course the hearty mountain goat and if you have ever watched the discovery channel those little climbing goats are pretty badass. I feel kind of badass today. I feel like I was born to be hardworking and to survive. Like a warrior, silently working behind the scenes slowly moving forward. That’s me.
As I sat freezing in my car thinking of bad ass mountain goats and surviving the next few brutal months of winter I found my mind wander to a gentle place of reflection. Reflection of the years behind me, lessons learned, memories accumulated.
So I thought as a way to celebrate my life thus far I would throw togeather a post of some lessons I have learned during my 28 years on this earthly adventure.
So there you have it, 28 lessons in a nutshell. Honestly, I wish I took more time to reflect on these points as I know I am missing some key things. Maybe a lesson in the coming years will be “let go of perfection.”
Thanks for reading!
