the big two four

Today is my 24th birthday. I know it sounds cliche but it really does feel like only yesterday I was 18 years old and graduating high school. That was SIX years ago! Time sure does fly by. I received an email today from an awesome website I am a member of. It was a happy birthday email, but it was one that made me truly think about my life and I wanted to share it with you.

Don't just count your years, make your years count. - Ernest Meyers

What matters most in life is often viewed as peripheral to the things that we usually focus on. Passion takes a backseat to production, wellness to working, and balance to busyness. The old adage that "life is not a dress rehearsal" is so true, and yet we act to the contrary by putting off what is truly important or indulging in things that are not. On your birthday, stop focusing on your age and start meditating on your life at this exact moment. How can you make it better? During the next year, reshuffle your priorities. Spend more time with family and friends, take care of your body and health by eating well and exercising regularly, and offer to help others in need. Discover what matters most to you, and make your daily life into a true reflection of those ideas, beliefs, and attitudes.

I don't know about you guys, but after reading this statement I am so inspired. I have the strongest feeling that 2010 is definitely going to be a year to remember. Thank you to all of my friends and family who are making this day so very special. You guys are amazing and I am truly blessed to have all of you in my life. And Keith, I love you baby. Thank you for making me feel like everyday is my birthday.
