This morning, I received this quote from Simple Reminders and I needed it. I always have these HUGE expectations of what my birthday will be and a lot of times I am let down. My parents always made a HUGE deal out of my birthday as a child especially because it was so close to Christmas. As I have gotten older though, not everyone around me has grown up with the same birthday enthusiasm or it is just so close to Christmas. So, therefore every year, I have to remind myself to let go of the high expectations & just enjoy the day as it is.
I am blessed this morning to have some great friends at work and another close friend that made my morning brighter with a few gifts & flowers. Feeling blessed & ready to start 33 with a bang!
