25 Hopes for my 25th Year

Monday, October 09, 2017

You know how everyone says you can't share your birthday wishes when you blow out the candles on your cake? Well, I'm turning 25 at the end of this week and instead of sharing my wishes with you all I've decided to share my hopes. Becomes obviously in this instance we can all agree that there's a big enough difference between hopes and wishes and that they'll all still come true even if I tell you guys, right? ;)

1// I hope that for just a teeny tiny second time would slow down so I don't feel like bawling my eyes out every time I think about how fast it's all going.

2// I hope that I'll say yes more often than no to experiencing new things.

3// I hope that I'll continue to get to know myself a little better.

4// I hope I'll know when to walk away from something or someone who isn't good for me.

5// I hope I'll find more time to practice new skills, and that I'll be noticeably better at them when I look back next year.

6// I hope I'll start to collect pieces for a more "grown-up" wardrobe (ha ha, not likely).

7// I hope that I'll make more of an effort to be present in special moments as they're happening.

8// I hope that I'll learn the difference between thing things I want and the things I need.

9// I hope to simplify my space.

10// I hope that I'll always make an effort to make sure my people know I'm there for them and thinking about them.

11// I hope that I'll stay the kind of person who always chooses dessert over dinner. Or who chooses both.

12// I hope that the world will become a better place.

13// I hope that I'll remember that making the world a better place starts with me.

14// I hope to strive for grace not perfection.

15// I hope to continue writing and growing my blog.

16// I hope to grow my cooking skills.

17// I hope to read my way through more of the books on my must-read list than I've had time for lately.

18// I hope that Target stops coming out with all the new stuff that I NEED ;) **see hope #8

19// I hope that I'll continue to make friends in person and through the blog world.

20// I hope I'll continue to be the kind of mother I've always imagined I would be.

21// I hope that I'll find some more outdoor activities that I enjoy doing so I can get outside a little more.

22// I hope that we'll be able to take Kenz on her first tip to Disneyland.

23// I hope to find small but impactful ways to help others.

24// I hope to learn plenty of new things.

25// I hope to make this my best year yet. 


  1. Happy 25th Birthday! For me, 25 kicked off some really great years! (I'm 28 now.)

    I feel you on saying yes to new experiences. Even if it gets you outside of your comfort zone!

  2. Happy 25th! It really is amazing how fast the time is going by. I don't like it.
