I always like to write a reflective post at the end of the year even though I treat my birthday in August as my New Year. However, this year is a little different because 2019 is the year that I turn forty.
I don’t feel 40. In all honesty, I actually still feel like I’m in my twenties.
I don’t feel like a responsible adult.
I don’t clean my house nearly often enough, I don’t know if I’m calculating enough money for my retirement and I still don’t understand Excel for crying out loud!
But yet, here I am, nine months away from forty and I feel amazing.
For the past three years, I’ve been on a wellness journey. After hitting bottom in 2015, I vowed to live my life in a more meaningful way and am now choosing to help others see the light in them.
Karmic Sweets was started as a home baking venture for friends and family and grew into this blog which is a place that I love and have grown with so much.
It is where I’ve always been able to be myself 100% without fear. It is a place where I feel safe. It is a place where I have healed.
2018 has been a year of facing fears, taking risks and surrendering in order to finally understand that the Universe truly does have my back even if things don’t always work out like I’d thought.
So on this first day of 2019, I’m choosing to set only one intention this year : to continue being the light. That is my purpose. How? I will choose love over fear. Always.
Honestly, I am excited to turn forty in a few months, a thought that scared the bejesus out of me only a few years ago. But now, I choose to welcome it with open arms knowing that I am exactly where I want to be 💜
Happy New Year!
