Kevin and I headed out to the mountains yesterday morning for a hike and lunch at our favorite restaurant in Canmore to officially celebrate my birthday.
We were supposed to go out for a wine tasting and visit to the new Science Center in Calgary on my actual birthday this week, but Kevin ended up having to work late into the night which resulted in me spending most of the evening eating lentil granola and watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory. It wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, but was still special in it’s own way.
I’ve always seen my birthday as an opportunity to be proud of what I’ve accomplished in the previous year, appreciate my life, and set new goals for the following year. Before the following year starts, I like to set an overall theme of what I’d like to accomplish,
And wouldn’t you know it, these themes always speak to what I end up experiencing come the end of the year!
My goals for my 25th year were:
Needless to say, 25 rocked my socks off. A trip to an ashram in Nelson BC, a diving vacation off the coast of the Dominican Republic, quitting my full-time job, going to India… I definitely took risks, jumped into opportunities head first, and stayed true to who I was.
26? Bring it on!
I sense that this year is going to involve connecting with influential teachers and individuals to take my skills to the next level. I’m not exactly what it will look like, but I think I’m going to learn a lot about the world around me over the next 365 days.
Some of my goals include:
Here’s to continuing to live life through passion, love, and lessons!
