Yesterday I celebrated my 28th birthday – better yet I celebrated moving on from 27, a year that I might just deem as my most challenging year yet.
27 meant dealing with career issues (or lack there of), preparing for and experiencing Don’s first deployment, living and working in Cambodia, and fighting to overcome other more personal issues that I’ve refrained from sharing from the world in writing just yet.
But the nice thing about significant dates like birthdays, the changing of seasons, or the New Year is the hopeful prospect of turning a new leaf, putting the past behind you and moving on.
So that’s the plan for now. Tomorrow Don and I leave for the mainland to spend the next few weeks with friends and family, together, for the first time in two years.
So I’m hoping to start 28 off with a more grounded outlook, a better plan, and most importantly the intention of staying present in the moment. What better way to get started than to spend the day horseback-riding through a Hawaiian Ranch with my love and enjoying a peaceful sunset dinner.
