How long exactly?

As the end of June rolls around I begin to think about what a bummer it is that summer is passing so quickly.   I think we can all relate to that.  However, as I think more about it, I realize that in 9 DAYS it’s my BIRTHDAYYY!!!!!   

My birthday has always been pretty special to me as I love spending it with the people in my life that I love.  But who am I kidding?   Bring on the rhinestoned Louboutins because it’s my birthday!!!  

This year, however, I feel compelled to dig a little deeper as I am turning one year older and gaining a “greater sense of being on this earth”.  You know what they say?  With age comes wisdom.  I disagree: I think you totally have to work for it.  Everybody has a New Years resolution, so why not have one for your birthday?   I think what I need the most in my life right now is tolerance.  And no, I don’t want to be able to take 7 shots of tequila and “feel fine”. #WrongTolerance

I want to be able to be stuck in a situation that is not ideal and be able to stay calm and see the bigger picture.  Yes, a nice pair of shoes or a Chanel bag can never hurt, but I have all that.  This year I am looking for something that cannot be attained by money (I know, crazy), but I really just don’t know where to start. 

As you all know, I am in Asia right now, which seems to be the best place for self reflection.  As I have 9 days before the big day I plan to use each one wisely and try to search for my flaws.   I will then take those flaws, store them in a pretty pink Fendi filing cabinet in the back of my brain, and try to lock them away.  Of course, some of my flaws are awesome and are what define me, but the ones that have a poor impact on my personal happiness are the ones that get to go “Buh-Bye”. 

For anyone who is celebrating anything in the near future, I hope this inspires you to be the best you and realize that a material item will not make you happy, long term of course.  Instead try to be like #buddha and find your inner peace. 

Until next time. Xo (DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE)
