birthday gift to yourself

Cake is always a good idea

Today is my birthday, and you know, it dawned on me this time. I’ve been busy with work and school year-end stuff for Connor, and between those things and last weekend’s camping trip, I really don’t have much time to think about it. *shrug*

Anyway, every year I buy myself a birthday present. I haven’t done it yet, so at some point today I’ll be picking up something tangible (I could use summer clothes). Plus, when I was taking a shower after work this morning, I thought I might even be giving myself a non-tangible gift—like the gift of letting things go.

Girl, I have too many things to let go. I’ve held a lot of them for a very long time. I think it would be a great gift to give yourself for this next trip around the Sun.

I’d love to leave it…

  • Being too hard on yourself.
  • All worries/anxieties/monsters in general.
  • Trying to figure things out on my own. It’s OK to get help!
  • The idea of ​​a tight tribe of mothers, as you see in the movies.
  • chaos in my life.
  • Getting on my own way.
  • I am trying to change myself. I am a sensitive soul. It’s okay to be like this.
  • my gray hair Will probably color it soon.
  • All the shoes I never wear (LOL!), so I can make room for more shoes I’ll actually wear.
  • Thought there had to be a certain way for MBB to be “good”. I am changing, and MBB may change with me.
  • Painting your own toenails. I really hate doing it. It’s time to outsource. Stop denying it already, lol!

Anyway, thanks for being here today. I’m ready to grab a piece of cake from my favorite bakery in town, Creekside, and then I’m going to get a pedicure.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
