Birthday Month Reflection

It’s September, and my birthday month is over. I’ll be honest I didn’t do something to celebrate every single 31 days of August, but I did do quite a lot and had a ton of fun.

Looking back one major takeaway I had from this month – realizing how many amazing people I have in my life. Last month, I joined amazing women from Women on Adventures for a couple of dares. I celebrated with life-long friends, and relatively new friends. I re-connected with a couple of friends I hadn’t seen in awhile. And of course there’s always the strong army of my family. It’s pretty cool to really see how many people have your back in life. Thank you to all of you for your love and support!

A quick recap of the month:

  • Surfing
  • Bought my favorite childhood movie
  • Chocolate treats
  • Indoor Skydiving
  • Breakfast with an old friend
  • Vulnerable conversation
  • Booked a flight to San Francisco for surfing part 2
  • Face & hair masks

There’s probably a few others that I’m forgetting.

As I said in my last post, my dares and adventures have only just begun. It’s interesting, when I created my vision board I wrote a post saying I didn’t know how to become the type of person that would just go out and do whatever crazy thing comes up. I think the true trick is to be that person you have to just start. You have to wake up the next day and just do the first crazy dare you’ve always wanted to do. Take a deep breath and then do the next crazy dare, and so on. Before you know it you are that person, up and ready for the next adventure.

I told my friend yesterday, I’m waiting for that lazy crawl into a cave side of me to kick back in. It might. But I think when it does it’ll be temporary and simply to allow myself to rest. I don’t see myself stopping these adventures completely.

In fact, I’ve actually started a 30 Things to Do Before 30 list. I only have 10 things right now, but I’m working on it. There’s travel for sure, real skydiving, motorcycle ride (not to drive it just to be a passenger and see what it feels like), blind date (because it sounds nerve-wracking but a funny story to tell later), and a few other personal ones.

Happy Birthday month to my September birthday friends!
