Late Night Thoughts With Miracle #1: My Birthday

           Do you ever find yourself staying up late and just getting lost in [deep] thoughts? I do this quite often. I think about a lot of things late at night; my past, my present, but especially my future. (It's currently 2:18 am by the way) Now normally this would be something that I would write down in my daily journal but I figured it could make for an interesting blog post instead. 
         My birthday is coming up and I'm turning 26... Dun Dun DUNNNNNNNN!!! I'm blessed to make it to 26. I have had a couple of friends who unfortunately passed before reaching this age so I'm thankful. However, I can't help but to feel kind of old. I'll be 26! Like..................... that's literally almost 30. Yikes. I can't even imagine. I remember being a teenager and thinking 30 was so far away and kind of old. HA! I'm about 30 and I wondering where the time went.
         I was talking to my niece the other day and boy, can she talk a lot. We were talking about my birthday and she asked me something that really had me thinking. She asked, "Miracle, why aren't birthdays our own personal new years?" And I'm like... huh? And she says, "Why do we make resolutions and try so hard to start over on Jan 1? Shouldn't we do that on our birthdays, when it's a new year of age and growth for each of us?" I'm not sure if those were her exact words but the way she said it made so much sense. It's also crazy that she actually mentioned that as I was already thinking about everything that I wanted to do once I turned 26. I'm feeling very determined and motivated this year. I want my year of being 26 to be different from my year of being 25, 24, or 23.
         I have goals that I would like to accomplish my 26th year. I really want a second job, I have been job hunting for a while now so hopefully I can land one soon. Also, I want to finish my master's program strong with nothing but A's. My initial goal was to graduate with honors but I already have 2 B's so that goal is an epic fail. I'm still proud of myself and even though I may not graduate with honors, my GPA is still pretty high. Another goal is to post more on my blog. I have a schedule of Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays but sometimes I'll skip a day if I'm not feeling inspired. Let me know what kind of posts you are interested in. I had been asked to review movies and make challenge/haul videos. The videos, I can do but I rarely watch movies nowadays. It's hard for me to sit through them. I guess that's what happens when you get old.

  1. Interesting post. And what she said does make sense. I'm liking your goal oriented mindset. A lot of us get complacent and don't have this mindset. We're just happy to be alive. But sending good vibes your way and I hope you accomplish what you set out to do.

  2. What? I thought you were 16. Same but I'm turning 27 so, eat my dust. You're an amazing person and you going to do great things. I'm proud of you, you got a good head on your shoulders kiddo keep up the good work. Remember,I got your back.

  3. Miracle, whatever you decide to do I will be proud of you. I am already proud of you. You are very driven, family oriented and have much integrity. You are so lovable it's like I haven't had you for 26 years; you are still my little girl! Don't be concerned about your age but your purpose for being here. You are a very special young woman.
