I hope everyone is doing well.
Just wanted to check-in, and share some pics from my birthday last month. My mom and my Babe had birthdays, as well - along with a few close friends. Needless to say, October is a busy month for me! I am truly blessed to have some genuine people in my life, and I enjoyed my birthday this year. I always take the day off so I can be home from work, and this year was no different. I relaxed, went to dinner, had a spa day the next day with a massage and facial, got my nails done, and randomly went on a hayride at a pumpkin patch (my idea). It was fun!! And I don't usually make a big fuss over my birthday with parties and things (and if you do, that's awesome, too! - I just may do that for an upcoming milestone birthday), but it's important to me to take a break from things and just reflect and take time to enjoy the people who have been there for me. I truly appreciate them, and I'm blessed to have them.

Just thinking over the last few months, it's been interesting to learn people's thoughts and reactions to things. I have definitely been on social media less and interacting with some less. People will assume that if you aren't posting or showing what you're doing on a daily basis that you're doing nothing... Which is sad. I'm really just focused now on friendships/relationships of substance (not surface) and building on those. I have so much to focus on and work on, and I'm making many positive changes. I have let go of things that no longer serve me, I'm progressing and I'm a lot happier. I share this to remind you: Don't worry about what anyone else thinks about your life. You are the only one who can live it, and you have to be happy with yourself and your decisions at the end of the day. If you aren't, figure out what is hindering you and address it and let go.
I hope you all have a great week! I'll be back soon with even more updates!! So excited :-o
