Monday was my 42nd Birthday.
I love birthdays. I believe they are our own personal New Year. We are saying good bye to one year and welcoming in our new year.
Just like on December 31st each year we reflect on the year before. We take what we learned or experienced, decide what we want to resolve (New Year Resolutions) and what we want to take with us (New Year Aspirations).
As my birthday drew near I found myself thinking about everything I had experienced in the last year. I blessed the great things that happened, my experiences, and what I learned. Then I looked honestly at the things I desired to change.
