The 25th Year

It’s here folks. The week.

I know, you’re asking which week. Thanksgiving has already passed, and Christmas is yet to come so what’s left?

Why, my birthday of course!  This is the week I turn 25. For some reason in my book, 25 is registering as a big milestone, and not just for the fact that my car insurance will go down.
See, this past year has been full of many, many ups and just as many downs. Too much stress  and not enough sugar.

But I’m still here. 

Here’s the thing.  Those of you who know me, know I am not some famous writer, nor am I rich; (famous writer… sure, I could be that someday…) therefore, I am not about to up and leave my life of luxury and travel all over the world to find peace during my 25th year, nor am I going to buy it.
But I am going to attempt a challenge. An experiment.
A year-long something.
I have had way too much anxiety in my first quarter of a century. Life is only going to get more stressful as I age, but I believe I can approach it differently than I have this year…if I’m willing to search for a different approach. 

And that’s what this year is going to be.

I’ll make the reveal official on Thursday...when I actually turn 25… but I’m laying it out there tonight:
A list of 25 things to search for this year as I journey towards more peace and joy in the simple things.
I hope you’ll stick around because it’s going to be epic.
Learn contentment. Seek peace. Find joy. Live Faith. Breathe hope.

  1. I have been waiting and waiting and WAITING to hear about this and now you are going to make me wait LONGER!!! I am so very excited for you to do this! You will be an even stronger, more beautiful woman once you've completed it (as if it were possible for you to be even more of either of those things.) I love you, girl!
