I love my birthday and always have. It’s the one day to be selfish and do exactly what you want to do, no need to compromise or make a collective decision about what to do and where to go for dinner. It’s all up to you or at least that is how I think birthdays should be.
This week I created a vision board so that I can manifest my dreams and desires, and that got me thinking about my life at 24 versus 54. Thirty years ago, I had so many dreams and was full of hope for the future, but I was also so scared and insecure in many ways. I was jealous and envious of others and full of worry and anxiety about life. I wasn’t yet married, and was not a mother. I was also struggling to find a career and purpose.
Now at 54, so many dreams have come true. I have 3 wonderful daughters, have been married, published 2 books, found a career that has brought me joy, and I have traveled to many places. I am close to my family, friends and to God, and I write a blog that I hope inspires people to go after their own dreams. Life is not perfect, and there is still so much I want to do and accomplish, but life is so much better at 54.
