23 years young

today is my 23rd birthday!! i love my birthday- who doesn’t? it’s an excuse to eat cupcakes and open presents. but one of my favorite parts of my birthday is when i get to sit down and go through my goals i set for myself the year before at my birthday and make a new goal list for the upcoming year.

the past six months have been full of big life changes for me- i graduated college, moved TWICE, started a new job, bought a car and got my first apartment. i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t feeling overwhelmed which is why i was especially excited to sit down last night with a cup of tea (yes, i’m drinking my tea out of my favorite minnie mouse mug) and my moleskine and set my 23 goals for the upcoming year.

i love lists, there is something so therapeutic about crossing something off a list when i’ve completed it, goal lists are my favorite because i feel truly accomplished when i can check something off! how many of you are thinking about goals?
