IMG_6967I wrote a post draft/rant/diary entry 3 months ago about how I had this unreal expectation that everything would be different and magically better when I turned 25.

I wrote, “ I need to have my finances in order, my household running smoothly, my go-to drink order (coffee and libations), my beauty staples, a closet with clothes I love, routines and rituals, blah blah blah. I have been feeling (inflicting) this self-pressure to figure this all out and I am imagining this magical moment when my birthday rolls around this year and I have all of these things figured out and life is easier and less stressful.”

While no magic switch turned and I don’t feel any different today than I did yesterday, I do feel different than when I wrote this post. Writing this post surfaced feelings and pointed out that I need to be happy with all the amazing things I have done and have in my life. Since I realized I didn’t want to post that blog or be the person waiting for change to happen, I have been actively making some changes.

As I mentioned in my post on making time for myself, I am not using busy as an excuse anymore. I am placing value on things that are important to me and working to balance my time and energy. Each area I put energy into serves me in its own way, creating this amazing life I have. All of this has helped me feel more satisfied and content with my present moments.

I had a wonderful day yesterday and spent this morning (since 5 am) launching a website for work . I am looking forward to my first cup of coffee, heading to work with Neil and dog snuggles. It is just another day, another beautiful day!
