New Beginnings

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

It's my birthday! A quarter of a century old!  I always have a hard time celebrating my birthday because there are so many more important things to think about on this day.  This year, however, I've been trying to focus on new beginnings.  I skyped with my old college roommate last night and she was talking about how she felt like this month was going to be one of a lot of big happenings.  I can't help but agree with her.

As sad as I was to miss a majority of this past summer, I'm already getting excited for fall.  I was lucky to get a few weeks of hot weather but the moment I saw a red leaf on a tree I couldn't stop thinking about the fall.  Fall has always been full of fresh starts for me.  Whether its starting school or a new birthday, I always feel like September is the true start of my year.

I had a phone interview for a job today.  Even if I don't get past this round I still feel like that interview marks the start of a successful job hunt.

I've also got back into my running and I've been enjoying it.  Seeing how I felt during those weeks I took off has made me realize how good I feel when I'm consistently running.

So, overall, a new birthday and a new year.  I have a good feeling about this upcoming year and I think a lot of great things will be happening.
