Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 32. It's hard to believe that I am 32 years old. I know that I look like I'm 32 (maybe even older...yikes!) but I certainly don't feel 32. In my mind, it still amazes me that I am old enough to have a second grader. It scares me a little that I am 32 years old and it seems like just yesterday that I was laying on my nap mat in my Kindergarten classroom. Where does the time go? It scares me that time goes by so fast.
Yesterday I made a birthday pact with myself. I am going to try to SLOW down. I am going to savor every moment of every day...even the stinky days. I am going to make sure that I always have time for those that I love. I am going to not stress over the piled up laundry and dusty shelves because I have kids to play with and memories to make.
In my birthday pact, I also vowed to...
#1-spend more time with God.
#2-exercise. I think that I can no longer consider "chasing children" to be exercise!!! I dislike exercise VERY MUCH. I am going to try to partake in some sort of activity that is considered exercise. I need to take care of this 32 year old body!!! My momma gave me an energy bracelet for my birthday. I'm wearing it right now. I think it really works. I'm hoping that all of this energy that I'm gonna have will give me the desire to exercise!
#3-not have to REjoin Weight Watchers! I am a yo-yo er. My weight goes up and down. This year my weight is going to stay DOWN. It has to. I am going to be very disciplined about what I eat...I say this as I am munching on the scrumptious cinnamon popcorn that my mother-in-law made me for my birthday! I love cinnamon popcorn and I love that she made it just for me.
Life is grand! The sweet faces in this picture tell it all!!! I am one blessed 32 year old. God is Good...all the time.
