They say Easter demonstrates how much can happen in just 3 days and I can’t help but take it as a beautiful sign that my birthday coincided with the celebration of resurrection this year. This is an amazing display of new beginnings that I was honored to feel so in harmony with. It’s a reminder to us all that there is always an opportunity to resurrect better habits, more happiness, stronger faith and greater love within ourselves.
This birthday is special to me not just because I’m moving into another year but also because it’s ripe with my own new beginnings. For the longest time I’ve felt an urge to make a change in my life – to make moves and to play bigger, but I kept waiting for the perfect moment and for it all to be crystal clear for me. Both have arrived and all things have lined up almost as if they were orchestrated for me.
I have prayerfully decided it’s time to see what Cali has to offer and take a leap of faith. I moved out of my condo, sold all my things, minimized down to fitting my life into a 5×5 and bought a one way ticket out West. It’s been a gracious, humbling and liberating process, but also one that I felt called towards and blessed by. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know I’m ready for it.
So, here’s to new beginnings along with awesome friends and family to help make me feel special during a time that I will never ever forget. Thank you all for reaching out and reminding me of all the love out there. This world can seem crazy, chaotic and straight up maddening sometimes, so it’s always nice to be wrapped up in well wishes and love.
May we all be reminded that every ending is a new beginning and everyday is a new chance to begin again. Every year on our birthday we should thankfully remember that we are being given another year of life to foster our gifts and to make a difference, not to just sit around and watch it pass us by.
I hope you and your families had a wonderful Easter together. I hope you were reminded of the power of God, the importance of faith, the beauty of new beginnings and all the love that surrounds you. My wish is that we all resurrect the best versions of ourselves and go out into the world to make our corner of it better.
