Last year it was sharing your birthday wish so I could make it with you. I lovedddd all the birthday wishes that came in!
For this year, I thought long and hard about what I wanted to ask...
But I don't want to make that my birthday wish this year.
Instead, I was reflecting on where I thought I would be today, in my life. AT THIS VERY AGE (old enough that I'm not disclosing it anymore, LOL!).
How I imagined my white picket fence dream of a single family home with a yard, husband and two kids, a minivan, boss career, my mom babysitting her beloved grandkids, being involved in the school/community and hosting amazing dinner parties while looking perfectly perfect. Making my parents and community so proud by living the 'dream.' That I would be so happy by 'making it' and I would have succeeded.
That I would get THE gold star of all gold stars.
Instead though, my life looks almost nothing like that today and the journey was one I never imagined. (if you want to hear my powerful story of going from heartbreak to whole again -- you can hear it here: Confessions of an Imperfect Woman)
As I was reflecting, I got curious about you.
Where did you think you would be today?
Does it look like what you imagined - and you sometimes still wonder why you're not satisfied?
Or does it look nothing like what you imagined - and there is a longing in your heart for something?
Or is it an in between of just 'fine' but you can't help but desire more and feel guilty about it?
So this curiosity gave me the gift I want for my birthday.
I want to hear where you thought you would be at this age. The real deal of what you wanted. What you secretly desire but are afraid to say out loud.
Whether it's the fear of judgment ...
or the fear of not being grateful...
or the fear of letting others down...
or the fear of you don't even know what...
I want to make a safe space for it to be heard and seen.
And that's the gift I want from you today. Just reply to this email to share only with me. You can't say no because it's my birthday! hahahahhahah. Plus I'm really good at keeping secrets ;)
p.s. If you're ready to step into your best life, I'd love to show you the easy and painless way.
