It’s my birthday month (my day is the 25th) so there’s been a lot of treating myself this March. A sundae here, an extra glass of champagne there, and lots of dinners being ordered in. My husband is totally on-board with the idea of me treating myself all month because he’s a smart guy! He doesn’t mind because every year for my birthday we do the same thing – go to my favourite taco place – La Carnita – then head for ice cream after at Sweet Jesus. Done. Easy right? Throw in a few shopping trips to Yorkdale this month and a day or two at a spa and I’m a happy girl!
What’s sneaky is all of the Happy Birthday greetings I’m receiving from my favourite retailers! My Louis Vuitton contact has asked me to come in and shop for my birthday, and I’m receiving all kinds of discounts to shop this month for my birthday! It’s amazing/costly but I’m loving all of the new summer gear I’m picking up!
This weekend is jam packed (four parties – no not all for me!) so by the time my birthday rolls around on Monday I might be looking a little older since I’ll be tired! Sometimes I can’t believe the age I am because I feel about 21, but I really don’t mind getting older because I think I’m having just as much fun as I was then! Ok, maybe I was having a bit more fun with less obligations, but I know I’m absolutely happier!
Letting things go has been the easiest way to achieve all of this happy I have going on. That girl is saying terrible things about me (and EVERYONE else) to get a job? That’s ok, people will find out she’s a fraud soon enough. I’ve realized when people lie and talk garbage behind your back to gain friends or jobs it always falls back on them. Those are the people that are truly unhappy in life that need to make things up for attention, to get ahead, or to make friends. Finding out things like that and letting it go makes it matter so much less in your life. I used to stress when I found out people would say negative things about me, worried people would think it was true. I’ve learned that those people always end up revealing who they really are on their own, and letting go of that worry makes you just feel lighter!
I hope you are all having a great week!
