This year, I started off having a few birthday wishes, and mentally the list grew and grew… Soon it became more than a few.
A white pony
I didn’t ask for nor receive any of them, but somehow between saving money and thinking about what I really want, slowly surprisingly, my list of wishes and priorities have been transforming into non-material things.
Now, my birthday wishes are…
To have eternal encouragement from my parents
For my younger brother to return from Amazon river and Honduras jungle safely, but first to have the most amazing life-changing experience there
For my best friend to experience the love of Jesus
To have peace about the decisions I make
Clarity for the decisions that I can’t
Forgiveness for the things I do wrong.
Better use of time in my day
To be healthy and in good health
Success at work and support for my blog
To do more for others
To live a life that is full and meaningful
To have true friendships that will last a lifetime, not a night
Is this ideal or is this real? None of the above have anything to do with money or fame, because that’s not what brings real happiness. I guess I am growing up.
Happy quarter-century birthday to me, thank you everyone for the messages/wishes, and I hope MY life and YOUR life will be blessed out of the ordinary.<3
Disclaimer: Donations for first birthday wish list also can. I think I still need to buy an iPad 2.
