That’s right today is my birthday and I’m celebrating! It’s such a huge blessing to have the opportunity to commemorate another year of life. So, I thought I would share a list of what other things I’m celebrating in addition to today being my Born Day!
28 Things I’m Celebrating Today
1: Family– This numero uno on my list because I know so many people who don’t have family whether by death, separation, etc. I’m beyond blessed to have a family that loves me and cherishes me as much as I love and cherish them.
2: Creativity- Needless to say without creativity, I wouldn’t be writing this blog post. I definitely wouldn’t be writing my novel. Being creative has always been my outlet. My way to let go of stress, blow off steam and more.
3: Life– Oh what a beautiful thing! To not celebrate having the opportunity to be alive another day is a crime.
4: Books– I love reading. It’s my to escape and see different parts of the world, explore different dimensions and connect with complete strangers.
5: Food– Food and I have a bit of a love affair. I’m not ashamed to admit that I enjoy eating to highest. I also love cooking and being the kitchen, especially with my family. We laugh, talk and create.
6: Book Title– I’ve been working on my novel for some time now. I was really starting to stress over not having decided on title because without one it just so unofficial. But I’m happy to report that as of yesterday, I have an official title!
7: Friends– Unlike family, we get to choose our friends and I am blessed to have some great ones!
8: Faith– It’s the essences of things unseen, but hoped for. My faith has seen me through a lot rough times.
9: Love– We all need it, crave it and want it!
10: Support– It’s always nice to have someone in your corner.
11: Music– I don’t play any instruments, but I do enjoy singing along to the radio!
12: Computers– My laptop died and I started writing the rest of my novel chapters out by hand. Let me tell you, don’t take having a computer for granted. I’m back in business now, but oh boy do I have a lot of stuff to type up!
13: Social Media– Sometimes, we give social media a bad wrap when we misuse it. However, used correctly and you find all kinds of hidden treasures and resources on social media.
14: Happiness– Ain’t nobody got time for being sad!
15: Cooking– It’s another way to escape and unwind with my loved ones.
16: Fall TV– I’m not a huge fan of summertime television shows. However, when Fall rolls around you catch me glued to television watching shows like The Vampire Diaries.
17: Movies– So many good movies coming out on the big screen that I want to see. They make laugh and they make me cry.
18: Shelter– So grateful to have a roof over my head. So, many people went to sleep at a homeless shelfter tonight or worst outside in the elements.
19: Sleep– I’ve been running low on it these last couple of days, but it’s still good.
20: Giving Back– Touching a life is the most amazing feeling in the world.
21: Unexpected Blessings– Nothing like having a wonderful surprise drop in your lap out of the blue.
22: Fashion– Fashion is also another one of my great loves. I could spend hours flipping through the covers of Vogue Magazine.
23: Coca-Cola– I must have been born with a Sprite drip in my arm because I love Sprite.
24: Car– Public transportation doesn’t run everywhere. So, it’s nice to have car to able to visit all of those places.
25: Nature– I went to Lake Junaluska once. Let me tell you, the nature scenes there are breathtaking. Just something about surrounded by nature that reminds me there is a higher power.
26: Toys– As I get closer to finishing my manuscript, distractions will not be wanted. As a parent, that kind of comes with the territory. Thank goodness for toys to keep them somewhat occupied though.
27: Inspiration– When inspiration hits me, I feel like doing a little jig.
28: God– Without Him, we wouldn’t be here!
Until Next Time,
