I was thinking all week of something insightful I could write today, but to be honest it has been an exhausting week and between paper writing, errands, meetups with friends, etc. my insightfulness was at a low.

And then I thought - isn't that what life is about? About making the most out of every moment, every second, even if it means spreading yourself thin sometimes. It is invigorating to be busy....in moderation, of course.

Because life is meant to be lived. Really lived.

And to think that I'm celebrating a quarter of a century...well, it is humbling, and reminder to be grateful.

Grateful for my good health, for the love that surrounds me everyday, for all that I've already experienced.

And excited. Excited for another couple quarters full of unforgettable memories and all the people who make my life amazing.

Now, I'm off to make a wish.

This is so true..even when life gets busy, the enjoyment lies within those chaotic times. It's the time after where you reflect that brings joy and peace to how much you've accomplished and enjoyed. I sometimes prefer more busy days because I feel I have purpose and ready for what life has to offer next :)

So glad you found my blog so I could find yours. You have such a passion for life ( I read for a while some of your posts ;) and take joy in all that it has to offer.
