23.

January 30, 2011

23. I celebrated my 23rd Birthday this weekend, and what they say is true. It feels like the years are speeding up on me. The last I looked over my shoulder, I was turning 18 and anxious for the world ahead. Now, with age comes hindsight. As with every age year I complete, I am thankful for life experiences yet ready for what is ahead. I enter a new year, I would like to remind myself of how grateful I am for life:

1. I am grateful for complete health
2. I am grateful for the diversity of experience
3. I am grateful for choice
4. I am grateful for my new watch 🙂
5. I am grateful for the most amazing yummy Japanese dinner I had this weekend. Must go back.
6. I am grateful for my #naturalhair. Never thought I’d love it this much, but I can’t imagine not being natural.
7. I am grateful for my own space. A bed to call my own, a tub I can use whenever I please, speakers I can turn up as loud as I want
8. I am grateful for my running shoes which take me farther than my mental mind can go

18. I am grateful for the ability to connect with many different people via el Internet
19. I am grateful for music I feel deep down in my bones

      Aww THANK YOU! I’m crossing my fingers that your trip comes through! My younger sister (sad I know) put me up on Ruby Woo over the Holidays, and I had to snag me one as a birthday treat to myself. All I can say is love!
