Happy Birthday to Me!



Hey guys! It's my birthday. Yup, 1/11/11 marks the beginning of my 29th lap around the sun!

I've been thinking a lot about what I want for my 29th year. For some reason I've always looked forward to this age and expected it to be enjoyable.

So my intentions for this year are pretty joy-centric. I thought I'd blab about some of them to you, if that's all right. {Not that you have much of a choice, ha!}

First off, I intend to do something every single day this year to celebrate my body. I could say I want to work out every day, but that's not as fun, plus it's not the point. In my last year I've had a ton of reminders not to take the functionality of my body {or my youth!} for granted, and I'm listening. Exercise definitely counts, but it's not the end-all be-all. Even if I just do some stretching or meditating at the end of the day, it's still taking time to just be in my body and use it. Makin' love counts too, by the way. I can't think of a better celebration of our bodies than that, can you? ;) Walking around is also a big one. Someday I might not be able to just walk out my front door, confident my legs will carry me as far as I want to go. I intend to just get out of the house more, to spend more time wandering on foot. I got that little 'Don't Break the Chain' Calendar you see on the right to help remind me of this intention. {It's kind of a neat idea, I'm stoked on it! You may want to check it out too}

I have a ton more, but the beautiful sunshine outside is calling me. I think it's a great day to do some wandering with my camera!
So I'll leave this list at one for now. See ya!
