I look different now. The person I see in the mirror, looking back at me with curious eyes, isn’t the same person I’ve seen for the majority of my life. It’s still her inside, but to the eye she’s changed. She’s bigger, with a curve to her stomach, dimples in her arms, lines on her thighs, and a wobble where before she was smooth and sculpted. I look different now.
Oh my woooooord, I am absolutely shattered today for some reason. Well, not just today, but this weekend and yesterday too. You know the sort of tired where you can’t even construct a thought properly in your head because your weary brain is struggling to grasp on to anything? Yeah, that kind of tired.
I am in such a good mood! I had a brilliant weekend which seemed to last twice as long as usual and I’m feeling so ready for the beginning of another week – I haven’t actually set my goals for the next 7 days yet, but will definitely have to do that today.
It’s been one month since my birthday and so the first twelfth of my 34 Before 34 is under my belt. I’ll be honest, I’m feeling pretty chuffed with myself as I’ve actually managed to tick off a few bits on there! I’ll be sharing a little round-up post each month – more to hold myself accountable than for any other reason – but you can click on the 34 Before 34 link in the top menu bar of this blog any time to see how I’m getting on overall (if the mood so takes you…)
So, month 1 of 12 done – how did I get on…?
When I decided to set myself some targets to achieve before my 34th birthday next year, I knew I wanted to make sure they were all positive in one way or another. Whether that be by way of broadening my horizons, having new experiences, learning something new, or by encouraging and nurturing the loves and friendships I am lucky enough to have in my life. And so, here we are: the first of my Blogger Spotlight posts. My intention is to have 12 of these – one each month – over the next year, telling you all about particular bloggers I love.
Today I’m starting the series with someone who deserves to be the very first on this list for no reason other than that she really is a pretty incredible human being. So make yourself comfortable and let me tell you all about Grace…
