Today, I turn 35. Yay, 35!!! No, seriously, I’m very excited about it. I am, I swear. Contrary to what one might think, I have been looking forward to this day for a while. Now, I’m not one that celebrates for a week or anything like that, but I do love MY day, and I have no shame in the number of candles on my cake. I’ve earned each one of them, and 35 was a year that I probably worked the hardest to earn. If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know it’s been a rough few years Professionally, things are where they should be, but emotionally…I’ve been a hot mess. However, every year, I arrive at this day of my birth in one piece and I get to put another candle on my cake. #winning
I think my favorite part of having a birthday is blowing out the candles and making a wish. I don’t care how superstitious that may sound. Being a December baby, we round out the calendar year with some really great events…. our birthday, the holidays, new year’s…that’s a lot of wishing in 31 days. We wish you a Merry Christmas. We wish for something special to come to us on our big “birth” day. We wish for something magical to happen in 2019 as the ball drops that will kick us up a notch. It’s an important time for a Sagittarius. If we choose our wishes right, we could manifest some amazing things into our world.
So, I know “they” say don’t share your wish or it won’t come true. But, who are “they”, really? You know, today I’m feeling lucky so I’m going to share with you my 3 wishes I’ll be sending out into the universe this December.
1.) My Birthday Wish – I wish that the world will continue to see me for who I am and love me for it. I’m learning who I truly am daily, and I am excited about what I have to offer this life. I figured out in 2018 that love is an inside job, and if I can keep THAT love on fire, the world will feel my warmth, and benefit from the things I manifest into existence because just like people can sense self-doubt in another, they can also sense my effort and sincerity which tells them I’m someone on my path to greater things. That’s where I get to keep helping humanity.
2.) My Christmas Wish – This is the same wish every year. I wish that you find peace within yourself this holiday season. Look around you. Find the good. Spread it on anything you can reach. Remember that life isn’t about how much is in your bank account or how many presents are under your tree. It’s about how much love is in your heart. My wish is that we all get one moment this holiday season to pat ourselves on the back for making it through another year. When you take that moment and feel the love, find someone who’s smile isn’t as bright as yours and hug them super tight. They may be completely confused, but I bet they smile.
3.) My New Year’s Wish – I wish that 2019 be a year of ease. I hope that whatever sets your soul on fire becomes plentiful in your circle. I hope that progressive change occurs so gracefully it seems like all the pieces are finally aligning as they are truly meant to be. I wish that whatever you long for will manifest in a healthy and productive way in your life.
I woke up today, December 13th, 2018 and before I put my feet on the floor, I told myself…
You got this, girl. You are enough. You are a BABE and you are really brave. Love those that love you. Forgive those that don’t. And trust YOU ARE MAKING THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE one day at a time.
I may have totally freaked out my husband who was sound asleep, but once he realized what I was saying, he kissed my check and simply replied “Go get ‘em, babe”. So, here goes nothing. Bring it on, 35. We got good vibes to give out and dreams to manifest. Let’s go.
