Hello November!

The month of my birth, 35 years ago.

Wow.

Surreal.

Especially because I can still remember, vividly, details of days LONG ago...totting around at 2 years old in my plastic kitchen, napping on my 6-foot long stuffed frog, flirting at 5, my first kiss in the woods near my house at 11...what a life!

How is it that I'm just getting started?

This birthday is sort of special for me. I have treated myself to my first tattoo, I have received my slackline kit to begin my adventure into slacker yoga and I'm healthier than I have ever been in my life.

A celebration is in order and cupcakes are a'coming!

For the last 2 years I have been staking a claim in myself like never before--long overdue because of the extent to which I was accustomed to giving to others, especially my children--but I can feel it leveling out and it makes me happy.

I don't want to feel self-centered because it really was a necessary shift--however, all things are coming into balance for me now. I take what I need so I can give not only what I have, but what I manifest.

This is the start of something beautiful and I happily greet this month with open arms!

Love to all who read...may blessings abound in your life.
