Birthday Resolutions (?)

Every year I get more and more excited about my birthday! I like to think of it as my New Year event for the year except its only for moi and to me that makes the occasion so much better! But for real, birthdays are a wonderful thing. I love the idea of celebrating and welcoming another year of life. To me, getting older means having more experiences under your belt and becoming more self aware. And as corny as it sounds, the older I get I can't help but feel more grateful about my life and super hopeful for the future.

All that optimism aside, I still can't ignore the fact that my youth won't in fact be with me forever. And as vain as it sounds I can't deny the physical after effects of old age. And I know I know, I'm only 23 and I shouldn't go over board on the anti wrinkle and eye creams. But as a present to future 40 year old me, I would like to start adapting some better habits for myself such as:
  • Sleep earlier
  • Wake up earlier
  • Drink more water
  • Take vitamins
  • Maintain a savings account
Aside from maintaining a savings account, I feel like I was acing this list as a kid. Whatever happened? Anyway this may not seem like the most extensive or exciting list out there but I can definitely say it'll be a challenge. (Especially the first two! Hello Netflix and Tumblr!) But its a challenge I'm willing to take! Plus I can't back out now, it's already on the interwebs.

Wish me luck!

<3 Jay
