On February 19 I was blessed to celebrate another birthday! Happy 36th to me! I know there are so many who have celebrated a pandemic birthday but this was my first (and hopefully the only). At first, I was apprehensive about making any plans but I said you know what…make the best of it. So I did!
I scheduled a few days off work, which was one of the best things I could do. It was nice to spend a few days with no set schedule and or plans. I planned a spa day and did my annual hair color (check out my cute Instagram reel), had carryout dinner and ice cream cake with the family, and made last-minute brunch plans with my closest girlfriends. And of course, I did a little online shopping to treat myself to a few new things. My friends and family came through and showered me with sweets, treats, gifts, and lots of love. I felt so special!
New Year New Goals
It’s not January 1, but a birthday is a new year of life. I don’t always set New Year’s resolutions, but I do like to set goals on my birthday.
Here are a few of my goals for 36:
- Limit my procrastination – I’ve been a procrastinator forever, so I can’t change myself, but to help limit my procrastination I’m spending more time planning so I’m not putting things off to the last minute
- Strengthen my relationship with God – I have a great relationship with God, but this year I’m going to step it up and I’ve already put this goal to work with Virtual Bible Study.
- Get out of debt – this year I’m focusing on not accruing any additional debt or using credit cards. Time to cut up the cards!
So here’s to 36! Let’s see what’s in store!
