Embrace Each Year and Its Blessings

FullSizeRender (1)

Yesterday, December 27,  was my 35th birthday. It was a lovely day filled with messages of love, warmth and support from all over. I have a renewed appreciation for life as each year comes and goes and am embracing my mid-thirties with grace and ambition as I continue to strive for more and continue to evolve.

I know the saying goes, “age is nothing but a number” – and there is some truth to that – but you do need to grow and evolve as you become older. The key to happiness as you age is to embrace each year and focus on the whole new set of doors opening up for you as you embark on this new chapter in your life. If you act like age doesn’t matter, it could have a potential drawback and make you stagnate rather than keep moving forward. You don’t want to be in your 40’s engaging in the lifestyle of someone in their early 20’s.

As I get older, I have a deeper respect for my body and aim to take better care of myself (physically and emotionally), because it just becomes that much more important as the years progress.

And while it can be daunting to face the reality of growing independence and adulthood and all the challenges that come with it as you get older, I am a strong believer in positive thinking and that no matter what you might be dealing with, believing in a positive outcome will result in just that.

I am also once again thankful for all the wonderful people in my life, from my family, to old friends that I’ve reconnected with, to all the beautiful souls I’ve had a pleasure of engaging with through my blogging and the gym.

A special shout out to my dear friend Deanna who is like a sister to me. Thank you for making my day that much more special. You rock!

Here’s a pic of us from last night after a lovely dinner at this Italian place up the street.

I am excited about what lies ahead and ready for the next adventure life brings.

Cheers to 35!

  1. Happy Belated Birthday too. I hope you celebrated well–and you certainly haven’t aged. I am sure you are wiser though.
    I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster Award. I know these things can be a hassle, but if you have the time and inclination, please give it a whirl. If not, I am not offended. My only hope is that it brings you some new readers. I appreciate your relentlessly positive attitude and thing it can do good in the world.

    1. Thank you so much Anthony! You are so sweet! I will certainly take part in the award and thank you again for recognition.

  2. A year has passed,
    Time to renew.
    This is your day,
    To redefine you.

    Looking back,
    At the good, the bad.
    You’ll find much treasure;
    Worthy to be had.

    With every laugh, a memory;
    Every tear, a lesson
    Growth comes to us all;
    Every age and season.

    I wish you a blessed birthday.
    May joys eternally follow.
    I wish you the best day ever;
    And a better one tomorrow.

    Happy Belated Birthday Sarah
