Holy moly I can’t believe the long-awaited day is finally here – it’s my GOLDEN BIRTHDAY!

If this is your first time hearing this term, it represents the age you’re turning on the matching date of your birthday. This means I’m turning 28 on the 28th today, woop woop. I got lucky with a date I could mark on my calendar as an adult; my sister not so much (hers was age 5 on January 5.) Needless to say this particular birthday became the next one I kept on my radar after turning 21.

Every year I like to reflect back on how much I’ve grown in the last 365 days, along with how the overall year was for me & how I could make this next one more successful going forward. Now success to me doesn’t necessarily mean to reap just the tangible rewards (although I do have a few in the professional dept.) but instead, it serves as a feeling I hope to achieve in this year ahead, one that will position me in the best light/vision I can find for ME. Whether it be a more positive way of thinking to a physical goal I’d like to challenge myself, here’s my list of a few things I’d like to focus on during this 28th year of life:

Calendar “Let’s Get Drinks Soon” plans immediately after suggesting them
Try to finish work at 6pm more often (so bad at this..)
Read one book every 2-3 months
Practice more self-love through positive praise
Start back up with my workout routine & keep it consistent all year round

To all my readers, thank you for all the love today & every day!

I’m so lucky to have you in my life as loyal supporters of my career & journey, as well as being able to call you my incredible friends.

Have an amazing weekend! xx

    Happy late birthday Tilden! As I read over your blog post I realized that I like the idea of reading up on reflecting back on the year & what I can work on for the following year. I think this makes a birthday even more significant. I resonated with your goals because they were simple but also very important goals. They are also doable to accomplish. Your dress is stunning & this color looks really pretty on you! Thanks for sharing!
