monday was my 25th birthday - yep - a quarter of a century.
i said i was going to get in the [chilly] ocean on my birthday, until of course, the day came. it was SO windy! i couldn't imagine getting in-and even more so the whole getting OUT part. i shuddered uncontrollably as my little toes just barely touched the water.
then i went home. had lunch. took some birthday calls (i'm such a lucky girl!)
but i couldn't stop thinking about that promise to myself, and how awful i would feel come april 15 when i still hadn't jumped in the Atlantic.
needless to say...long story short...yadda yadda yadda...
it happened. it had to! and it felt so AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! i literally felt like a new gal - alive, able to look at the world with a fresh perspective - rebirth, if you will.
anyway, it was fantastic. and i think i started a new tradition.
wherever in the world you may be, i hope you get to take a moment out of each day for yourself ... to surprise yourself, to keep that promise to yourself, to treat yourself, just to make YOU happy. it's good for the soul. it could make the world a better place.
don't forget to frolic! don't forget to breathe! don't forget to stretch and play and laugh and LIVE!
