I’m turning 35 on May 1!
I love birthdays because they’re an opportunity to take a look back over the past year and celebrate all that I’ve accomplished, how I’ve grown, the lessons that I’ve learned, and all the fun adventures I had over the year.
My 34th year was full of high highs and low lows, but it was also rich in lessons. The biggest lessons came when I lost my job. I realized how important it is to advocate for myself, how powerful manifesting and setting intentions can be, that I need to allow myself space to heal at times, and that life events that seem awful can be huge blessings.

Some of the highlights of my 34th year:
The fiancé and I got engaged (!!), we began planning our wedding, I made the decision not to look for another 8 to 5 and pursue my wellness career, my new website launched, and I began teaching Pilates reformer classes.
And, of course, there were so many other moments that were gorgeous and meaningful like our trip to Yosemite National Park and San Fransisco.
Going into my 35th year, I feel so much more connected to myself, I’ve made self-care and feeling nourished one of my top priorities, and I feel like I’m becoming more aligned with my purpose.
It feels really scary to be changing my career after a decade working in journalism and as I turn 35. It seems like this is the age when I’m supposed to have things figured out. But it also feels exciting to be doing what my heart desires and to be creating a meaningful career that’s fun and has freedom.
On my birthday each year, I also revisit the intention that I set in January and recommit to it or set a new intention for the year.
I intend to get even deeper into my self-care/self-love practice over the next year, and there are a few things on my wish list that will allow me to take my self-care up a notch. Here’s what I’m wishing for:
