This is 32. I am constantly amazed by how fast time passes. As I’m celebrating another year of life on this earth, I re-read my annual birthday post from last year. All of the 31 Thinks I’m Thankful For still hold true to this day, and thinking back on where and who I was this time last year when I wrote that, I’m also very thankful for everything that’s happened in the past 365 days. It’s hard to believe how some priorities have changed, what newness has entered my life, and how I can’t imagine going back with everything that I have to look forward to now in my 32nd year. I am still extremely grateful for everything and everyone in my life, and for everything that happened while I was 31.
In the past year, I’ve gotten engaged to my best friend + partner in crime, we rescued our puppy Milla, I traveled to the Pacific Northwest to watch my big brother get married, I spent as much time as I could with my family & friends, I started working with a personal trainer & aesthetician to improve the health of my body and skin, and so much more. As new things came into my life, some things also slipped away. But that’s the normal ebb and flow of life.
Year 32 is going to be a year focused on action. Taking the next steps. Making the big moves. Taking the big risks. With that in mind, here’s what I’m looking forward to doing while I’m 32.
These next 365 days already have me feeling very excited! There’s a lot of big life changes happening. Not every year is going to be full of so many “big” events, but for me, it’s all about appreciating the variety in life. The variety of adventures and changes and opportunities that present themselves along the way. This next year is going to open the door to so many new & wonderful things in store for my life, and I couldn’t be more excited. Of course, where there’s highs, there are also going to be lows. I know that in the next 365 days, there will be plenty to celebrate and smile about. But I am sure there will be unforeseen circumstances that will require tears and mourning. And that’s ok. To me, having a full life involves feeling, experiencing, and appreciating everything. Whatever it may be.
So here’s to 32 and all of the wonderful, joyous, and mysterious adventures that lie ahead.
