Happy Birthday To Me & Happy Sunday!!!!
Another year older & another year wiser~*
Woke up at my usual 4 am (no alarm) time. Spent some time with my journal and coffee! I can’t believe how fast the years are flying by at this point in my life. I’ve been waking up at 4-5am for months. If I go back to sleep I feel like crap when I wake up. So, I have graciously accepted that if the universe wants me awake at 4 am then… SO BE IT!
I used to be a night owl. But, this was when my kids were little and had early bedtimes. It’s taking me a long time to come to terms with this early hour. For a while I was dragging all day & a little pissed off that I couldn’t sleep in. Now I enjoy the peace and quiet of my mornings with every one still asleep. I would have to stay up REALLY late now to have this kind of peace and quiet. I guess it’s part of growing older. I do have to have a nap during my day & I am in bed before 10pm. I’ve tried staying up later, but my body clock still wakes me up this early! This may change as the days grow shorter. Just a few weeks ago if I got up at five, the sun was already coming out to greet me. Now it’s completely dark when I wake up. Once school is back in and perhaps I find a job this will all be changing. I used to enjoy my evenings when everyone was all sung in their beds, just as much as I have come to enjoy my mornings.
Everyday IS a Second Chance~* (My mantra to get me through each and every day!)
Now, I have a whole new year upon me. I am actually very excited for it!!!! I have had, major personal growth in this last year and it feels AMAZING! It’s time to set some new personal goals/intentions for this next year. This last year I spent learning, preparing, and setting myself up for THIS YEAR! I’m at a even age and it’s still a even year and I have BIG plans! Personal growth and development are still my main priority. However, now I am READY in my mind, body, and Soul to take daily action towards making my dreams come true.
Priority #1 — ME — This is my time and TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF MY LIFE!
Remind yourself that it’s okay NOT to be perfect! A big fat Halleluiah!
This is hard…..
But, I am getting there and realizing that it really is OKAY!
In fact I LOVE that I am Perfectly Imperfect!

I wrote a very long journal to myself this morning, about what I want to accomplish for the next year!
This journal entry is super long and completely attainable. I’m not ready to share all of it here on my blog yet. But, I will write out my main point.
* Daily, Daily, Daily!!! Habits, Workouts, Making time for MYSELF, and taking a step each and every day towards the direction of where I want to end up in a year! #DreamBig
My first major intention is Weight-Loss! This requires some major dedication! I am once again on a plateau! I know exactly what I need to do to break it. It’s only a little extra effort #Igotthis #imREADY — I’m going to be brave and post my transformation and progress on my blog & keep my friends and family aware of this intention, instead of keeping it to myself. I know exactly what to do…Now I just have to DO IT!
I could write all day, I will get more into my intentions in future blogs, but for now I am gonna go ENJOY my Birthday!!!
No Excuses!! Bring it on!!!!!!!!
