Be Able to Enjoy Being 26

Hi everyone!

Words can’t describe how grateful I am that you happen to stop by.

Today marks my 26th birthday here on planet Earth and I’m the type to give thanks and express how happy I am to arrive at this age.

This past year, I learned a lot and went through some challenging situations that I wasn’t really ready for. But that’s life right?  The Universe just gives us situations to handle because they believe you’re ready for it now. So, I was given those challenges and I assume I took it like I champ because I’m still alive & kickin’! =) Honestly, I’m thankful for those challenges because I would have never learned or experienced such situations unless it was placed at that exact moment in my life.

This year, I learned how to become more comfortable in my own thoughts and to switch my negative thoughts and emotions to positive ones. I think that’s a habitual effort that I have to continue to work on, maybe until I’m in my 90’s. I know its results are beyond amazing so I intend that if you’re reading this, you’ll join me to form that amazing habit as well.

I also learned how to breathe and take a minute or two to slow down and relax. Everything is so fast-paced you’re concentrated on something that you can forget to just inhale and de-stress your body. Our bodies are always working hard and we need to give it periodic breaks for it to remain sharp and healthy. When I get overwhelmed, I stop and inhale as slow as I can and release my breath with a clear mind. That allows me to go back at my task in a better mood and I more relaxed manner.

I also learned that when faced with making decision, go with the one that makes you most happy or has a positive outcome. It isn’t being selfish because it’s going from within yourself and it feeds your soul. You have to take care of yourself before you take care of others.  Feeling guilty or overly caring about someone who is capable of their own feelings and emotions can’t do any good.

Those are some of the major things I learned and/or had to pay more attention to this year and hopefully those points can inspire you to look at your life in a positive perspective.

This space undoubtedly allows me to channel my inner happiness by sharing my personal life experiences, lessons and just living in the present moment. Thanks for letting me share that with you.

Also, thank you for taking the time to read this, I know it may sound a bit sappy but the fact that you’re reading this means you have taken the time to show your love and support for me on our happy journey through life!

Thank you the bottom of my heart.

  2. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!! I hope all your wishes come true. Sending big hugs your way 🙂

  3. Thank you Wendy, you’re so sweet! I hope your kids enjoyed the vacation and are happily ready for school again. Much love.

  4. I liked what you said about going through situations you didn’t really feel ready for — I can relate to that in the context of my own growth. A situation that feels overwhelming, and perhaps even humiliating, usually leads to the most maturation for me — for instance, when I received a really nasty rejection of a book proposal I sent out a while back. That actually helped me to understand what I was truly interested in doing.
