It’s my Birthday today and I’m ready for a New Chapter in my life! 

 

 

Yeah, it’s my birthday today!  How do you spend your birthday?
Many of us have mixed feelings about our birthdays, how many years has been past and counting on regretful things, would, should and could’ve done.
Besides celebrating with your family, friends to eat out and drink a bit, it’s time to capture the moment who you have been and where your next few decades ahead.
Ask a few questions and definitely counting on grateful things in life as well!
Did you live how you intended?
Have you been bold with your dreams and goals that you set out?
What’s your short term and long term goal today & tomorrow?
I jawed down 47 things (I’m 47 years today) that I’m grateful for and happy for, guess what… I can’t believe I’m so lucky and happy right now.
This exercise gives me juice to look forward to tomorrow and the goals that I can reach.

You are bigger than your problems and You have so much in you that haven’t opened up and flourish in your life!
Be Yourself!!!
