Another year older; Still working on the wiser part.

It’s mah birfday! I can’t promise that I didn’t bust out in a little dance when I woke up this morning.

No, I’m not sitting here having cake for breakfast. I’d be lying if I said the thought didn’t cross my mind…but that would have involved a trip to the store for cake, which is simply too much work too early in the day πŸ˜‰

Since there was no cake on hand, I decided to go the ice cream route. Cinnamon PB Banana Soft Serve was in order!

You better believe I ate that straight out of the processor. Birthday girl doesn’t do dishes, thank you very much. Not today, at least. I’ll just let ’em pile up until tomorrow πŸ˜‰

I’m bound and determined to make this my best year ever.

I will participate in a 5k and a 10k.

I will send in applications for a job in writing and/or editing.

I will cut the words can’t and never out of my vocabulary.

I will actively seek and embrace every opportunity that I can squeeze into my life.

I will step outside of my comfort zone as often as possible.

I will continue to count my blessings instead of my calories.

I will stop depending on others to make me happy.

I will live in the moment.

And come to think of it, maybe I will go get myself some cake.
